An employer’s best line of defense is to put policies and protocols in place that comply with federal, state and local laws governing discrimination along with wage and hour issues. We understand the challenges that employers face. They must stay current with changing laws and regulations that are stricter than ever before. However, proper compliance serves as preventative measures that reduce the risks of discrimination and other employment related issues.
With New York’s recent requirement of sexual harassment training for all employees, many business owners and managers have questions or doubts about how to comply with the new laws. They themselves need training and subsequently are responsible for organizing and ensuring all their employees are adequately trained as well.
Christopher Van De Water is well versed in employment laws at the federal, state and local levels and can assist you with putting thorough measures in place that protect your business and allow you to focus on production. He offers compliance training and seminars to bring you up to speed with new compliance requirements.
