Providing Legal Insight for Employee Handbooks
Protecting your company from employment liability requires prudent and up-to-date employment policies. The best way to ensure that your policies will protect you from liability under the constantly evolving web of employment laws and regulations is to develop and regularly update your business’s employee handbook. At Thatcher Law Firm, our team of employment attorneys has drafted many employee handbooks and is constantly monitoring changes in employment law that require updates to policies. Led by managing partner Linda Hitt Thatcher, who has been consistently named one of the top attorneys in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area by Washingtonian magazine, our attorneys will design a specialized employee handbook tailored to the needs of your industry and designed to shield you from legal liability arising from employment disputes.
Trusted Representation Tailored to Your Needs as an Employer
The Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., employee handbook lawyers at Thatcher Law Firm will ensure that your handbook covers state and federal employment laws, company policies, and the company’s grievance or complaint procedures. If a business can prove that it has well-documented policies in place, its position will be stronger should an employee file a complaint or lawsuit.
Company handbooks should address privacy policies and employee use of computers, the internet, email, cellphones, blogs, social media networks (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, X, etc.), and artificial intelligence as these are also critical and ever-evolving topics. The attorneys of Thatcher Law Firm are prepared to discuss these issues with you and advise you on appropriate policies.
