Nossaman LLP


Employment Law Compliance

Nossaman advises employers concerning employment law compliance matters. Federal and state laws governing employment continue to become increasingly complex, and noncompliance exposes employers to significant risks of liability from several directions - employee claims, federal and state agency inquiries and audits with possible penalties and sanctions, and future repercussions based on present-day decisions.

Nossaman offers its employer clients a "big picture" approach to achieving compliance with federal, state, and local employment regulations. We work with our clients to develop solutions that minimize risks and at the same time achieve management's business goals.

We advise our clients on all aspects of the employment relationship, including hiring, disciplining, and firing employees, federal and state wage and hour requirements, overtime pay rules, family and medical leave issues, layoff practices and WARN Act compliance, COBRA matters, employment discrimination matters, rights to inventions developed by employees, and protection of the employer's trade secrets.

We regularly prepare, revise, and update employee handbooks, personnel policies and procedures, required notices and other employee communications, invention and trade secret agreements, confidentiality agreements, and severance agreements. Upon request we provide our clients with internal audits of personnel documentation and procedures and "best practices" reviews. We frequently help our clients prepare for and represent them in federal, state, and local agency audits and administrative proceedings.

Nossaman attorneys proactively evaluate employee disciplinary issues and complaints before they can transform into litigation or agency complaints. We adopt a preventive approach to employee relations to help our clients avoid the more expensive consequences of a formal agency complaint or lawsuit.

Nossaman also provides management and employee training in areas such as sexual harassment prevention, wage and hour regulation, and employment discrimination.
