Risk Mitigation & Compliance

Your office admin doubles as your Human Resources manager, maintaining payroll, ensuring  employees are enrolled in benefits, and handles other administrative tasks.  But do they know how to evaluate an accommodation request under the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA)?  Do they understand how the FMLA and state leave laws interrelate?  Are they adept at identifying business practices that could be considered discriminatory?

An inexperienced Human Resources person who makes the wrong decision — even something as simple as asking the wrong question in an interview — can lead to significant consequences.  Employee litigation can cost your business well over $80,000.

We provide training on topics such as employment discrimination and sexual harassment.

Independent contractors

Close to 30% of workers are misclassified as independent contractors (1099s). We will put your independent contractors through the federal or state test to ensure they are properly classified. 

Employee file reviews

Many small businesses include in employee files documents which violate laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII and other federal, state and local privacy and discrimination laws.

Job descriptions

It’s important to ensure that your job descriptions not only accurately depict requirements and responsibilities, but are also ADA and OSHA compliant.

Exempt vs non-exempt classifications

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) details the criteria needed to classify a job as either exempt or non-exempt (overtime eligible). We can put each job through the FLSA exemption test.

Background checks

We have partnered with a well-respected investigation company to ensure an expedited and thorough background check at a very fair price.

Complaint Investigations

We can conduct an impartial third party investigation, recommend any necessary disciplinary action and draft the proper documents to be provided to all relevant parties. For more information on this topic, go to our employee relations page.
