This is how we assist our small business owners daily.
The attorneys at York Bowman Law provide daily legal counsel to small business owners who do not find it cost effective to hire in-house general counsel. We assist Chief People Officers in managing difficult employee matters and advise Chief Executive Officers on ways to amicably resolve business disputes.
When an employee makes an informal or formal complaint, business owners should take immediate steps to stop the alleged conflict, protect involved parties, and begin an internal investigation. In fact, several laws require business owners to conduct internal investigations of employee complaints in a timely manner and to implement corrective action. York Bowman Law attorneys understand the sensitive legal issues involved in handling internal investigations that could result in litigation. We speak with relevant employees to gain an understanding of the facts, conduct a comprehensive legal analysis, and advise our clients on corrective action and necessary policy changes.
After receiving a Charge of Discrimination from the EEOC, business owners should respond promptly, thoroughly, and effectively. The attorneys at York Bowman Law understand the laws enforced by the EEOC, along with the intricacies of the EEOC process, and work diligently to submit meritorious defenses on behalf of our clients.
We train management to comply with state and federal laws relating to anti-discrimination, anti-harassment, employee leave, disability accommodation, and wage and hour laws.
