Hiring & Firing

I advise employers on all matters related to hiring and firing of employees, including the following:

Hiring of Employees

  • Making sure your recruiting process is in compliance with state and federal employment laws
  • Drafting offer letters and employment agreements
  • Making sure your employees are properly classified as exempt (don’t have to pay overtime) or non-exempt (must pay overtime)
  • Making sure your hires are properly classified as either employees or independent contractors
  • Making sure your compensation is in compliance with state and federal employment laws
  • Updating you regarding major changes in law that affect employee hiring 

Firing of Employees

  • Helping create and manage progressive discipline policy
  • Advising on proper termination process and documentation 
  • Enforcing restrictive covenants
  • Training managers on proper termination procedures
