Few relationships impact our daily lives as much as the relationships we have at our workplaces. For most people, it is the place they spend the majority of their time. Because of the strong personal and financial connections to the workplace, it comes as no surprise that employment law is one of the most litigated areas of the law. The laws governing the workplace are often complex, whether at the federal or state level. Many small business owners in Virginia wrongly assume that most employment laws do not apply to them. Understanding what laws apply is only one piece of the puzzle, however. At Davis Law Group, we are proud of our ability to offer solutions to the complexities that arise in the employer-employee relationship.
Solutions for Small Businesses:
From creating personalized policies and procedures, internship agreements , non-compete agreements and other employment agreements, to assisting in unemployment, discharge, Title VII, discrimination or wage claims, our attorneys can handle your employment law needs. The reality is that most employment litigation is rooted in poor hiring decisions. With proper planning, sound hiring processes, and adherence to policies and procedures, Virginia employers can minimize the risks of facing costly and time consuming claims.
Solutions for Employees:
For our individual clients, we help protect the right to employment free from unlawful discrimination and harassment. We advise employees on individual rights under federal and state laws, including severance agreements, wage, unemployment and benefit claims. We help Virginia state employees and employees of localities such as Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and other Hampton Roads communities with administrative grievances and claims with the Virginia Retirement System. Our team has unique experience in labor law, having successfully represented individuals as well as unions in this highly specialized area of law.
