Employment Law

In the employment law arena, the best defense is a great offense.  Employers can avoid many legal issues by consulting with us before making major employment decisions. We assist our clients in developing and implementing personnel policies and procedures that are designed to avoid costly litigation. We regularly conduct employment law seminars for our clients and the West Michigan business community to provide them with the knowledge they need to minimize their exposure to lawsuits arising from the employer-employee relationship. Should litigation become necessary, our employment law attorneys have the trial skills and experience necessary to successfully protect our clients' interests.

  • Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act
  • Michigan Occupations Safety and Health Act (MIOSHA)

  • Whistleblowers' Protection Act
  • Affirmative Action
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act
