 Why I should be your 

GEORGIA EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY

 

Helping Employees Understand their Rights

Like many states, Georgia follows the doctrine of “at will” employment. That means an employment relationship can be terminated at any time, by either party, for any reason (or no reason at all).  As a result, Georgia’s state laws do not offer the best workplace protection for employees.  

Luckily, there are federal employment laws that provide employees certain legal rights.  However, some of those laws require “steps” prior to going to court.  

For these reasons, individuals need an experienced professional to evaluate their particular work-related situation to determine if there are any viable legal claims, and if so, the best way to proceed.    

At the present time I assist individuals with the following services:

  • Analysis of potential employment claims and assessment of possible damages.
  • Contract review.
  • Severance agreement review and negotiation.
  • Representation before the EEOC.
  • Demand letters / Informal negotiation of claims.
  • Mediation.
  • Litigation in Federal and Georgia courts.

Regardless of the type of business, navigating through employment-related legal issues can be challenging.  In fact, some companies do not seek legal advice until there’s a problem.  However, the right employment attorney can help to avoid costly claims by providing proactive advice about handling issues that arise with employees.  Likewise, having someone knowledgeable in employment law can ensure that your business practices are in compliance with federal and state requirements.

I provide a variety of legal services to my business clients, such as:

  • Advising on human resources (“HR”) issues.
  • Analyzing alleged and potential employment claims.
  • Creating and revising employee handbooks and other HR documents.
  • Investigating employee complaints.
  • Drafting and reviewing employment contracts.
  • Analyzing issues related to non-compete and non-solicitation agreements.
  • Reviewing HR policies and pay classifications.
  • Representation in administrative procedures (Unemployment, EEOC, etc.), mediations, and litigation in Federal and Georgia courts.
