JJ Legal services provides small businesses with advice on how to strategically manage common employee related issues such as hiring, discipline, and termination.  Whether you are planning to hire your first employee, or your 100th, strategic partnerships on how to manage your relationship with your employees can be challenging.  Our goal is to help you maximize your human resources in a legally compliant and efficient way.  This includes keeping clients up to date on the rapidly changing labor and employment laws. 

Employment laws are ever-evolving.  Keeping up with these changes can be challenging! We offer clients practical advice and proactive strategies to navigate the rapid pace of employee relations issues. We provide advice to clients to ensure employment law compliance and manage litigation risk.  We integrate legal compliance with good human resources practices to help our clients find effective, customized solutions.

We routinely help employers address work performance problems or attendance issues, respond to requests for accommodations and leaves of absence, deal with employee discipline and discharge issues, and develop effective employment policies and procedures.  We regularly present supervisor training programs tailored to individual client needs.  We also review employee handbooks, audit wage and hour practices, prepare affirmative action plans, develop strategies to deal with reductions-in-force or other corporate restructurings, and address the many other issues that arise in the work place.
