It is the considered opinion of McBrayer employment law attorneys that an ounce of prevention is worth ten pounds of cure when it comes to relations between the businesses we represent and their employees. To that end, one of the services that we provide to our business clients is training for the businesses' HR staff, managers and owners. Either on-site, or together in a group of other clients, our attorneys regularly produce seminars aimed at keeping our clients current on big trends, changes in the law and key suggested policy updates. This not only keeps our clients ahead of the curve, but participation in such training itself can be a useful defense when claims arise from time to time. The law requires employers to be educated about their obligations and to advise employees of their rights, and the seminars produced by our team of employment law attorneys can be a vital source of that education for managers and HR staff alike.
