Herrick can help you reduce the risk of litigation, and increase your chances of success in any litigation that occurs, by developing employment policies manuals, handbooks, and guidelines designed to promote positive and fair workplace policies and employer/employee relations. We conduct instructional seminars for our clients' executives, managers and line employees with the goal of preventing disputes and improving the work environment.
We draft employment manuals, maternity policies, harassment policies, employment contracts, severance packages, releases and exit incentive programs. You can rely on our advice to see you through individual, group and mass layoffs and the termination of employees who may or may not be in a protected class.
Herrick provides counseling on hiring, firing, leave for disabled employees, maternity leave, leave under the Family Medical Leave Act, and performance evaluations. We also counsel and represent employers in negotiations with their insurance companies as to whether a discrimination claim is covered by their insurance policies.
