Employment Counseling



We understand that a business’s reputation hinges on employee satisfaction – and that workplace issues can cut into the bottom line. It’s crucial for companies to design employment strategies to minimize business and litigation risks. Today’s workplace requires close, and often costly, attention to a large number of complex rules at the local, state and federal levels.

Turner Padget’s Employment Counseling Practice provides advisory services to management in all employment and labor-related matters. Our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of employment law, and we work with a close eye to litigation prevention. To that end, we guide our clients to implement proactive strategies, such as workplace accommodation, documentation and management training.

Our clients range from large, complex corporations with employees that number in the thousands, to mid-level and small businesses with detailed employment requirements and benefits.

Our legal services to our clients in this area include:

  • Drafting and updating employee handbooks
  • Drafting employment agreements
  • Establishing anti-discrimination policies
  • Advising on employee benefits matters, including the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Ensuring compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Establishing best practices for hiring and firing employees
  • Preventing and responding to sexual harassment claims
  • Complying with wage and hour laws

We bring business acumen, legal experience and industry knowledge to serve our clients across the Southeast. Committed to working in the best interest of our clients, we provide practical, common sense solutions that garner respect both inside and outside of the courtroom.
