A wise employer knows that prevention of disputes is often a better course of action that being forced to litigate them. JJH Law assists employers in Oregon and Washington to structure workplace policies that comply with all regulations, as well as to develop best employment practices for recruiting, selecting, promoting, supervising and disciplining employees. This specialized employment advice, in addition to creating a uniquely tailored and skillfully implemented workplace handbook, can forestall many employment issues before they become legal problems.
An experienced business advisor knows every type of business has employment issues that can be particularly crucial to its success, and that rarely, if ever, will a one-size-fits-all approach serve all employers equally well. Employers in the most competitive fields, or with particularly valuable information, may want to pay special heed to non-compete agreements or other restrictive covenants on employees in sensitive positions. When major restructuring or workforce changes may be in the future, savvy employers give careful, advance thought to policies that will allow maximum flexibility.
