Managing employment relationships requires adherence to complex federal and state statutes and regulations, administrative guidance, and court rulings. Attorneys experienced in employment law can help a business navigate this legal maze confidently to avoid costly mistakes. Gallian Welker & Beckstrom offers legal counseling to businesses, assisting in the implementation of effective policies and procedures that are tailored to avoid or defend against a wide range of labor and employment law issues. And, if claims arise, Gallian Welker & Beckstrom’s attorneys can provide legal representation before state and federal agencies or in courts of law when the employer’s practices are challenged.

Our services consist of two forms of representation, Preventative Representation and Defensive Representation:

Preventative Representation

Gallian Welker & Beckstrom attorneys will work closely with your company to gain an in-depth knowledge of the structure and vision of your business and to address aspects of your employment relationships and practices that could result in future expense. Our services may include day-to-day advising as questions or concerns arise during the course of business, scheduled audits to determine your level of compliance with applicable laws, and training (whether on-site or off-site) to assist with implementation and acknowledgement of proper employment practices.

We also draft various documents that clients use to manage their workforce, such as:
– Employee Policy Handbooks

– Employment Contracts

– Independent Contractor Agreements

– Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Agreements

– Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements

Defensive Representation

Although implementation of preventive measures is a primary objective for your business and a major aspect of our counseling, there are times when a business may be faced with a claim and needs representation to safeguard interests. Gallian Welker & Beckstrom offers representation, providing our services in courts at various levels, and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and other state and federal agencies. Cases in which we have participated include:

– Wrongful Termination

– Discrimination

– Enforcement of Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Agreements

– Misclassification of Workers

– Contractual Disputes

Managing a business with a workforce can be overwhelming at times, but our team at Gallian Welker & Beckstrom is here to help. Begin the process of protecting your business by contacting our offices for a consultation.
