Swanson Midgley regularly advises its business clients on proactive as well as defensive steps suited to minimize the costs and disruptions associated with a disgruntled employee, as well as to improve the prospects of employee retention. Our employment attorneys conduct risk assessments as to whether litigation or an alternative form of dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, is appropriate as compared to the cost of resolving the matter early and without engaging in an adversary proceeding. A strong preventative measure in avoiding employee complaints is a well-designed and written employee handbook, and our attorneys are ready to assist with handbook preparation.
