Employment and Labor Law Essentials 

Growing your business while complying with employment and labor laws

Many small business owners are not completely oriented to the laws and regulations governing hiring and managing of employees. The best way to follow the law and protect your business is to know the law as it relates to workplace discrimination, wages and overtime, employment contracts, employee handbooks and sound H.R. policies. Following these legally sound workplace policies and practices will decrease the possibility of legal action by employees.

Given by a highly-experienced employment and labor law attorney, this workshop gives business owners an overview of the employment and labor laws that affect every business. It provides sound advice on drafting employee handbooks, non-compete agreements and other employment-related items. 

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Summarize key federal, state and local disability accommodation, sick leave, wages/salary and related legal obligations, including New York State/New York City statutes and regulations, that employers must follow
  • Describe legal business operating practices as they pertain to employment and staff management: handbooks, policies, offer letters and employment documentation
  • Discuss the guidelines for negotiating and drafting robust employment-related and employee-management contracts such as employment contracts, non-disclosure agreements, non-compete agreements and severance packages
  • List the criteria for legally terminating an employee including exit-interview best practices  

Who Should Attend?
Owners, executives and managers of small to medium businesses and non-profits. 

After the session, put your training to work. Schedule a free follow up discussion with a SCORE NYC mentor to get you started.
