Employee Policies & Procedures

Our Team Drafts The Right Policies to Protect Your Business and Your Employees.

Managing a workforce is no small task. Beyond ensuring that day-to-day business runs smoothly, employers must manage employees and their varying needs, all while monitoring compliance with a host of ever-shifting employment laws.

Frequently, employers choose to structure the workplace through a central document: the employee handbook. Some employee handbooks are only a few sparse pages while other employers find the need for extensive, comprehensive handbooks to address nearly every contingency for a larger workforce. Whatever an employer’s approach, consistency, clarity, and compliance are key.

The team at Fabian VanCott is well-equipped to draft, review, and advise on policies and procedures that govern the workplace, no matter how unique a business’ process, products, professionals, or places. Among other policies and procedures, Fabian VanCott’s Labor & Employment attorneys regularly advise on matters related to:

  • At-will (versus contractual) provisions
  • Multi-state considerations
  • Industry-specific requirements
  • Unionized workforces
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Retaliation
  • Sick, vacation, medical, military, jury duty, and other types of leave
  • Religious, disability, and other accommodations
  • Wages and overtime pay for exempt and nonexempt employees
  • Timekeeping and rest and meal breaks
  • Bonus and commission programs
  • Employee expression and confidentiality
  • Benefits programs
  • Background checks and drug testing
  • Disciplinary policies
  • Workplace safety
  • COVID-19 and other public health concerns
  • Work-from-home and remote work implications

With well-considered employee policies and procedures, employers can structure workplace cultures and environments to their liking, while at the same time heading off employee grievances that might otherwise drag efficiency, drain morale, or result in litigation. Fabian VanCott’s attorneys stand ready to build up your workplaces.
