FMG attorneys have conducted management and employee training on employment laws for clients throughout the country. Our lawyers regularly conduct such seminars not only for human resources officials, but also for management and other employees who need to have a practical understanding of equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws. While many organizations conduct such training, our firm’s attorneys have consistently received outstanding reviews in conducting such training in an understandable and entertaining manner that results in effective EEO instruction.
Our group’s lawyers also have extensive experience in preparing comprehensive handbooks and other personnel policies. We frequently review and draft employee handbooks and assess risks associated with the provisions included in these manuals and policies. FMG attorneys prepare or modify existing policies to ensure that the policies are consistent with federal and state law and the actual practices of the employer and provide the best opportunity to successfully defend an employment decision. For instance, we commonly work with clients to develop sensible and legally enforceable sexual harassment, e-mail, and workplace violence policies.
We also work with employers to implement different types of employee testing. Our attorneys help employers develop strategies to battle against employee substance abuse, including through development of pre- and post-hire drug testing programs, supervisor training on drug addiction, and substance abuse policies. We also work with clients to implement policies for pre-hire tests, such as credit checks or honesty or personality tests, and we counsel our clients on the selection and development of those tests.
