If you've owned a business for any length of time, you know the truth: the reality of running a business in the real world is much different from what you probably pictured. Yes, there are triumphant moments that remind you why you wanted to start a business in the first place, but there are moments where you end up mired in the day-to-day trivialities that get in the way of the really satisfying parts of the business.
It's for this reason that many business owners turn to employment law attorneys. Employment law attorneys specialize in taking those tedious and complicated tasks off your hands, letting you get back to what you love doing the most.
Attorneys can help employers with crafting employee handbooks and policies that help the company comply with regulations. They can give counsel and defend you if you are accused of discrimination or harassment. They can draft and negotiate employee contracts that will protect your interests. They can help you work through issues of workers' compensation and unemployment compensation. They can even make sure your employees' benefits and wages are taken care of according to the law. In fact, employment lawyers handle all of these compensation nuances:
- Pay for independent contractors.
- Paying salary for traveling employees.
- Dealing with past due unpaid overtime.
- Minimum wage compliance.
- Tracking timesheets and work done off the clock.
- Figuring lunches and work breaks.
