Austin labor and employment law can get complicated, so employers cannot be too careful.

Even if you have built a values-driven company and you want to do right by everyone associated with your business, you can never fully anticipate what might go wrong. As the saying goes, one bad apple can spoil the bunch. A problematic employee or supervisor can create a cascade of problems that can drag your company into painful, lengthy litigation. The team here at the Posey Law Firm can help you identify potential risks, minimize them, and, if need be, fight for you in any labor and employment law related litigation.

Reducing your risk is crucial. But perhaps even more important than litigation risk assessment/reduction is good human resources planning. The policies that you create, and the values that you instill in your employees can have a profound effect on your growth potential. You want to get “A” players on your team; at the same time, you need to prevent the wrong people from getting inside your organization and lowering morale and causing other problems.

The best human resources policies are based on tested processes—systems that work automatically to help you achieve your vision of a happy workplace, highly motivated employees, and functioning feedback mechanisms. Call our Austin office at (512) 646-0828 today. Our team can help you develop and institute these systems and procedures, so your HR department is a well-oiled machine.
