Prevention and Compliance

Fisher & Phillips attorneys work with our clients to develop policies, strategies and procedures for preventing employment claims and lawsuits from arising.

We assist employers in drafting employee handbooks and manuals, and in designing policies and procedures governing such areas as drug testing, background checks, pre-employment testing, harassment, and protection of trade secrets. We also assist employers in the training of their managers and supervisors in the implementation of those policies and procedures. We advise employers on employee hiring, discipline and termination, response to harassment and discrimination complaints, employee compensation and benefits issues, and compliance with all laws that affect employers. We also conduct compliance audits for our clients covering each of these areas.
