SilvermanAcampora's Labor and Employment Group emphasizes a proactive approach to reduce employment litigation and increase employee productivity through education. Our attorneys and consultants are well versed in current legal trends and developments as well as compliance issues. We assist employers in drafting employee handbooks and manuals, as well as policies and procedures that streamline their business. We train their personnel in the implementation and maintenance of those policies and procedures for maximum benefit. SilvermanAcampora routinely advises clients on all matters affecting the employment relationship, including recruitment, hiring, retention, compensation, benefits, harassment, discrimination, discipline and termination issues. In addition to assisting our clients in managing their day-to-day operations, SilvermanAcampora's attorneys are adept at the preparation and litigation of executive employment agreements. Our attorneys regularly represent businesses in complex executive disputes such as termination, non-competition agreements, and misappropriation of trade secrets and intellectual property.
A cornerstone of our practice is our hands-on, in-house practical training programs that we have developed for all levels of personnel from senior and executive management to supervisors and employees. Our management training programs focus on the avoidance of sexual harassment and equal employment opportunity problems, and compliance with, among other laws and regulations, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Our team building seminars and personal coaching services help develop the team spirit, trust, and reliability that enables businesses to prosper.
