Counseling Employers

It is best to make sure that a company’s employment practices comply with applicable state, federal and local laws, before any dispute arises. The Sohnen Law Firm advises employers about, and assists employers with compliance with labor and employment laws. Our firm drafts and updates personnel manuals and employee handbooks so they remain up to date as laws change.

The Sohnen Law Firm can also perform a broad range of audit services for employers by reviewing:

  • Contracts and forms distributed in the workplace
  • Employee classification as regards overtime pay, work hours and working conditions
  • Reasonable accommodation for employee with disabilities as required by the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act
  • Effective anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies, and compliance with laws pertaining to employee leaves of absence such as the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the California Family Rights Act.

We also provide assistance to employers who are interacting with government agencies in matters concerning employment laws. For example, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, the California Fair Employment and Housing Commission and the California Employment Development Department.
