The Employment Law Practice:
Properly drafted and executed policies and procedures are the employer’s first line of defense against claims of discrimination, improper treatment, or wrongful discharge. The lawyers of the firm’s Labor and Employment Group work with clients to develop personnel policies—including, most importantly, the company’s Employee Handbook—to help them address the tangled web of state and federal workplace regulations, including leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), pay practices, paid time off and vacation, overtime, non-discrimination and harassment, substance abuse and testing, attendance, and discipline. They also provide training to clients’ supervisory personnel to help clients properly implement these policies.
Branscomb PC’s lawyers strive to provide creative solutions for businesses, executives and families with tax, real estate, oil and gas, estate planning, probate, corporate, employment and litigation matters. We combine the attention and responsiveness that one would expect from a smaller law firm with the levels of expertise found at much larger firms. We are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity in each matter we undertake.
We communicate with our clients to ensure that they understand the scope of our services, how quickly they can expect us to complete those services, and how much those services will cost. We take pride in our work, and we are grateful for the relationships of trust and confidence that we have with our clients.
