In His Own Words

My insights into how juries, arbitrators or the press will view information can benefit any employer in deciding its strategy in a crisis. I am adept at counseling and training management on day to day employment issues or enhancing their understanding and ability to address HR issues. I am collaborative and can help focus a team on reaching its goals. Because of my legal experience on the front line, I understand how to triage and prioritize an employer's objectives and address the larger risks up-front. Typically, the greatest risk is exposure to FLSA litigation which can have disastrous impact on a small business. 

I conduct compliance audits to assure that employers can protect themselves from litigation and DOL audits.  The typical next greatest risk is discrimination and harassment claims. I conduct an audit of policies, and actual practices and procedures to assure that your workplace is shielded from these claims. Often this requires management and employee training which I offer at modest rates.  I also assist with workplace and harassment investigations as well as Unemployment Claims.
