Employment Policies

The Nuddleman Law Firm, P.C. reviews workplace handbooks and creates employment policies to ensure compliance with state, federal and local law, and help employers and employees address issues before they become problems.

Complying with the state, federal and local laws applicable to California employers is difficult. The legislature frequently changes the law, and courts are continually interpreting how the law is applied in the workplace.  Even employers with knowledgeable human resources departments occasionally need help. Some issues are particularly tricky and require someone knowledgeable about employment laws impacting California employers.

The Nuddleman Law Firm, P.C. helps employer clients develop policies and procedures for handling workplace issues.  We tell employers how to comply with the law and minimize the risk from potential lawsuits.  We help you make informed decisions about your employees.

The best time to contact an attorney is before there is a problem.  Calling our office before you discipline or fire an employee allows us to walk you through the process, and prevent a difficult situation from becoming worse.  Whether you want assistance with terminating an employee, disciplining an employee or improving employee performance, we can help.

We also help our client correctly classify their workers.  Many employers use outside contractors to perform work.  California and federal agencies have increased efforts to crack down on employee misclassification issues.  Incorrectly classifying an employee as an independent contractor can have serious consequences, including tens of thousands of dollars in fines and penalties.

The Nuddleman Law Firm, P.C. can help you understand the often-complex wage and hour issues effecting your company.  Whether you have questions about overtime, local minimum wage ordinances, or other compensation issues, we help you make the right choices so you can get back to the business of running your company.  Robert Nuddleman has been helping companies with their payroll issues for almost two decades.

Ignoring a workplace complaint can have dire legal and practical consequences.  Some laws require employers to promptly conduct thorough investigations.  Saying or doing the wrong thing when an employee complains about the workplace can not only disrupt the workplace, but also lead to expensive litigation.

We create contracts, workplace policies, and employee handbooks that fit within our clients’ unique situations.  Not all workplaces are alike, and copying another company’s policies or contracts decreases the effectiveness of those documents.  We work with you to create the documents you need, and offer a variety of training, including sexual harassment prevention training, so you can focus on running your business.

If you are considering whether you should talk with an attorney, you probably have questions we can answer.  We strive to resolve issues before they become problems, and help our clients develop strategies for success
