From day-to-day guidance to defending employers in the courtroom, our labor and employment team works in every aspect of labor and employment law. Part of the team’s work involves assisting our clients in preparing or updating employment agreements, personnel policies and handbooks (including provisions dealing with medical marijuana) in order to comply with federal and state law.

These materials can be essential in protecting a company against a variety of employment claims, including harassment and wage and hour claims related to employees working off the clock.
