Employment and Labor Law Issues
Monty & Ramirez LLP is a full-service labor and employment law firm that can provide the legal services your company requires whether it involves human resources consulting or defense in litigation. Some of the services our attorneys provide include:
- Consulting on employee relations and personnel practices
Employers must establish personnel practices that demonstrate compliance with Title VII anti-discrimination provisions as well as with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Careful planning can minimize the risk of a Title VII lawsuit, a wrongful discharge or retaliation claim, a wage and hour claim, and individual and collective actions under the FLSA. Monty & Ramirez LLP provides counseling to employers to reduce the risk of both private lawsuits and government action.
As part of our consulting services, Monty & Ramirez LLP can also guide and consult companies on employment law, on the impact of specific personnel decisions, and on internal investigations. The goal is always to minimize the risk of liability for your business while allowing your company to focus on its business in a competitive business climate.
- Employment Litigation
A strong defense is essential to reduce the risk of an unfavorable outcome in litigation. At Monty & Ramirez LLP, our experienced employment and labor law attorneys provide a vigorous defense in response to a variety of employment law claims including wrongful discharge cases; FLSA collective action litigation; anti-discrimination lawsuits; and other federal and state court action.
- Manager Training
The actions of supervisors and managers can put companies at risk of exposure to legal liability. Properly trained top personnel can reduce the risk of litigation. Management training programs can address workplace discrimination and harassment, employee absenteeism, employee performance reviews, and employee terminations among other labor relations issues.
- Employee Handbooks and Employment Policies
Employee handbooks must address the individual needs of your workforce while establishing comprehensive guidelines to reduce the risk of litigation. An experienced attorney should assist in the drafting of employment policies and provisions as part of a strategic plan to reduce litigation risk and increase employee productivity and efficacy.
- Wage and hour laws
Wage and hour violations can result in significant penalties. Monty & Ramirez LLP assists employers to understand and interpret regulations related to both state and federal wage regulations, including overtime, employee/independent contractor classification, salaried/hourly employee classifications, tip-pool, and others.
Violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act can trigger investigations and citations. Our attorneys counsel clients on appropriate preventative practices to reduce safety hazards. We can also represent your company in contesting citations.
