Proactive Consulting To Avoid Employee Conflicts And Control Labor Costs
Many businesses focus on minimizing costs to maximize growth potential and profitability. To do this, they may emphasize reduced labor costs or heavy-handed management to save money and maximize day-to-day cash flow.
Employees are expensive, but sacrificing compliance with employment laws in an effort to save money can backfire. Legal claims brought against you and your business may expose you to costly and often unnecessary litigation. You could be subject to back pay, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and court costs.
At Danz Law, PLLC, we draw on 30 years of experience to provide full-service consulting and training to South Florida employers. We serve as outside general counsel to many businesses, with an emphasis on employment law, and we offer a palette of human resources (HR) consulting and training to proactively comply with employment and labor regulations. We aim to be an extension of our clients’ business management team.
