Employment Law

From the moment you take on your first intern, you will find yourself in the role of employer, entailing what for many entrepreneurs is an entirely novel set of legal and regulatory duties and obligations and one which can easily distract from pursuing key business objectives. From wage and hour laws to anti-discrimination rules to anti-sexual harassment policies to worker safety statutes to non-compete covenants and complex executive compensation plans, tech startups often experience a steep and sudden learning curve when it comes to employment law. The Van de Verg Law Office can help your business navigate hiring, compensating, employing and when needed, terminating employees over the life of your company. We can help you with ensuring a safe, efficient workplace, negotiating agreements with key employees, designing employee handbooks and policies and implementing termination procedures that will avoid unnecessary workplace discrimination claims.
