As your business begins to grow, you will need to hire others to help. In California, you would be well-served to put together hiring protocols that (1) comply with all state laws, and (2) protect your business from potential litigation in the future. While your business should eventually employ the services of an experienced Human Resources professional, our office can help establish solid hiring practices and documentation, including but not limited to:
- Advising on all postings, notices, and pamphlets required by law to be posted in the workplace;
- Generating a series of hiring applications, information packets, checklists and employee handbooks;
- Creating internal policies for Bereavement, Family Medical Leave, Jury Duty, Termination, Workplace Injuries, Vacation/Sick Pay, Sexual Harassment, etc.;
- Advising on the extent to which various employment laws apply to your business (typically dictated by the number of employees on staff).
Please contact our office today to discuss whether we might be able to assist in keeping your business compliant with state and federal laws and protected in the event of future litigation.
