Protect Your Business the Right Way With GSB Law

As an employer, you have a responsibility to your employees to maintain a safe and productive work environment. As new laws and regulations get passed and come into effect, you have to be aware of these changes and adapt accordingly.

At GSB Law, we know the challenges our client’s face, which is why we recommend a preventative approach. By anticipating the needs of both employers and employees, we can help facilitate a better relationship between them.

As employment lawyers, here are some of the services we provide:

Employer Counseling

GSB Law firm provides exceptional employer counseling that caters to the need of the public and private employers across the United States. Our highly proficient attorneys encourage and facilitate preventive practices that assist the clients in developing and maintaining effective employment policies.

We Always Take the Preventive Approach

To provide effective employer counseling, our attorneys work closely with the HR personnel, managers, and board of directors to establish the optimal practices that ensure compliance of all the labor laws. Moreover, our employer counseling services also include the constant evolving in the employment laws preventing lawsuits.

Employment Law Compliance

New changes to employment standards happen all the time. Examples can include an increase in the minimum wage or adjustments to overtime and sick pay rules. As an employer, you must adapt to these regulations as soon as they take effect. The best time to get apprised of the changes is before they become law, which is where we come in.

We offer employer counseling for a variety of purposes, including compliance with any current or upcoming laws. Another aspect of our counseling practices is to work with HR and management to ensure that everyone is on board. Failing to comply with these laws can be costly due to public backlash, labor disputes, or employee lawsuits.

Whatever the case may be, we strive to avoid drawn-out legal battles in favor of mitigation and settlement. Usually, this is the best approach to prevent potential losses or negative publicity.

Labor-Management Relations

Working with a union can be challenging for many businesses, which is why having a competent and experienced legal team is so beneficial. At GSB Law, we have handled hundreds of labor-management relations cases over the years, so we know how to broker deals that will satisfy both sides.

In addition to negotiation, we will help you understand the finer points of these processes so that you know what to expect and can head off any substantial disputes. Again, we like to take a preventative approach – the more work we can do to avoid strikes and litigation, the better it is for everyone.

As part of our labor-management relations service, we also help handle-

Labor Crisis Management

Strikes and picketing can be costly to your bottom line, so avoiding them is our priority. However, even if we come into the situation after that, we’ll work with you and the union to ensure any crises are resolved as efficiently as possible.

Labor Litigation and Disputes

If a dispute arises, we know how to handle the situation. Our decades of experience put us in a strong position to represent your business and protect your assets. We also know how to prepare the case for arbitration and other hearings.

Document Preparation

Finally, at GSB Law, we know the best way to protect your business is to help draft everything from employment contracts to employee handbooks. We can create customized paperwork that will offer peace of mind to both business and staff members. You can count on us to get it right the first time.
