Human Resource Guidance For Dentists and Veterinarians
Employers of all sizes are faced with handling human resources (HR) issues and making decisions regarding their employees on a daily basis. While some are operational in nature, many have labor and employment law implications and could expose the employer and his/her practice to liability if not handled appropriately. Regardless of whether you have 5 or 50 employees, our legal team is equipped to support your practice and tackle your practice’s HR questions.
Whether you are a first-time practice owner or expanding your existing dental or veterinary practice, our legal team can provide trusted legal advice and help you navigate complex federal, state, and local labor and employment laws that affect your practice. Our legal team is available to guide you through discrete issues that arise in your workplace (such as employee performance/termination or paid leave) or we can serve as your outsourced HR department and trusted legal advisor helping you and your office manager make informed and sound decisions about your practice’s employees on an on-going basis.
Human Resource Solutions That Fit Your Practice’s Culture
Dental and veterinary practices are “people businesses” and we understand that the people who work in your office are key to creating a successful and dynamic office environment that attracts and retains clients. We recognize that your practice has its own history, culture, and relationships. We take the time to get to know your practice and understand its unique goals and challenges, and then we help you develop practical solutions that address your practice’s specialized needs.
Human Resource Services For Your Office
We can provide you with a broad menu of services, depending on your practice’s needs. We can prepare a customized Employee Handbook and educate your office manager and office leadership on how to implement those policies, as well as provide advice on handling a range of employee performance issues. We also provide critical updates on new employment laws and trends (such as mandatory paid sick leave and maternity/paternity leave) to help ensure that you are always informed about your HR responsibilities. Our seasoned team of legal professionals can counsel you through complicated employee issues that trigger compliance with laws such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and help you navigate issues such as discrimination, sexual harassment, and insubordination.
Trusted Legal Advisors For Human Resource Issues
With our legal team of knowledgeable HR advisors at your disposal, you can spend more time growing and operating your practice, instead of spending time trying to figure out the “right” way to handle employee issues and avoid potential liability. Having a trusted legal advisor on HR issues can allow you to delegate day-to- day management of your HR issues to your office manager with the peace of mind that issues are handled in consultation with lawyers. We can serve you on an as-needed, on-call basis for discrete issues or as your outsourced HR department through a subscription arrangement, allowing you to benefit from strategic and effective HR support on your terms.
