Employment

Often, with the complex legal issues facing employers in the employment arena, it is not always easy for an employer to know the right thing to do for its employees. We know that most employers want to treat their employees fairly and with respect, while being able to run an efficient, profitable business. The employment attorneys at LUPER NEIDENTHAL & LOGAN will work with the employer to thoroughly understand the challenges presented, to advise on the applicable laws, to discuss the legal options available, and to provide thoughtful recommendations. We strive to provide our employer clients with timely, practical and straightforward advice on the common law and employment-related legislation. Recognizing that court or administrative proceedings are expensive, time consuming, and often unpredictable, we explore alternative and creative ways to resolve your disputes. Nonetheless, we will not hesitate to use all legal avenues available, including litigation, when in your best interest.

We encourage our business clients to identify and resolve issues sooner rather than later. If not addressed quickly, some issues can unnecessarily become problematic at a later time. The old adage that “a stitch in time saves nine” is certainly true when it comes to employment law. We offer a telephone consultation program which allows unlimited telephone access to our employment attorneys for a nominal monthly fee.
