Offering Guidance for Employers Dealing with a Challenging Personnel Issue
At Sandman & Lankford, PLLC, our Florida and Pennsylvania business attorneys have dealt with many cases involving clients who have had to confront an issue involving an employee. HR issues can be complex and the personal nature of these matters can pose a serious challenge.
For instance, how do you deal with a once productive employee who is now under-performing? As an employer, can you fire this employee or would termination leave you open to a wrongful termination claim?
Wrongful termination lawsuits can be costly and stressful for everyone involved. And while most employers are willing to grant a bit of leeway to a good staff member who is confronting a temporary issue that has adversely impacted productivity, it’s also important to remember that you are running a business and as such, your bottom line matters.
There are many measures that can help minimize your liability as a business, including documenting HR issues and performing a routine employee evaluation. Lawyers can help by offering insight into how you can proceed in a manner that is fair and equitable to the employee, without hurting your business. We can offer legal advice and guidance as you deal with these challenging and sensitive personnel issues in a way that will not leave you vulnerable to a lawsuit, allegations of discrimination or a wrongful termination claim.
Addressing Ethical Violations, Allegations of Wrong Doing and Employee Complaints
Lawyers with Sandman & Lankford, PLLC have encountered many cases involving an employee who claims that they have been the victim of an ethics violation, harassment, discrimination, retaliation or another wrong-doing. These complaints can result in serious legal action and a lawsuit can be costly. What’s more, this says nothing of the impact on your reputation as a company or as an employee.
Our legal team works with employees, employers, and contractors who are involved in an employer complaints case. Whether you are the victim or the alleged perpetrator, dealing with this type of legal issue can be very stressful. Our attorneys will offer guidance for how to minimize your liability and how to proceed in a way that maximizes your chances of seeing a positive outcome.
Our business lawyers can also help companies to launch an internal investigation that will stand up in the courts. This can bolster your case, providing evidence that can mean the difference between a significant jury award to the victim and a dismissal of the case.
