Employers in Southern California usually do their best to comply with the myriad state and federal laws that apply to the employer-employee relationship. But, let’s face it – that compliance is oftentimes easier said than done. From the employer’s perspective, sometimes compliance efforts can seem quite daunting.
Helping with compliance
However, even when employers in California feel overburdened by their need to comply with state and federal laws, they need to remember that they don’t have to “go it alone.” At our law firm, we work with employers who are attempting to make sure they take all of the rights steps to comply with employment law.
For example, many employers are proactive and decide that an employment handbook is needed in their workplaces. That is a great first step, setting out many of the expectations and requirements that are relevant in the workplace. However, even when employers do everything right, sometimes it can seem like there is nothing to stop an employee from filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or even filing a lawsuit. Discrimination claims, for example, can be quite common these days, particularly in California.
At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients face whatever legal obstacles they might encounter, while at the same time helping them take proactive steps to minimize their exposure to such legal problems.
