Protecting Yourself from Employees in Florida

Employees should be one of your company’s greatest assets. Unfortunately, there are times in which an employee can become your company’s greatest liability and can even expose management and/or owners of a company to personal liability.

Here are some examples of actions that businesses can take in order to try to avoid a lawsuit with their employees:

  1. Have clearly written job descriptions, along with the employee’s responsibilities and your expectations of their performance.
  2. Work with HR to make sure the work environment is as safe as it can be for everyone.
  3. Always be very clear about company policies which should be written in comprehensive employee handbooks and should also include clear language explaining any disciplinary processes.
  4. Keep detailed written documentation of any bad behavior or underperformance by each employee.
  5.  Have high standards and demand them from employees equally.
  6. Do not discriminate for any reason; age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, etc.
  7. Keep comprehensive timekeeping and employee records.
  8. Ensure that you are properly classifying employees either as hourly or salaried employees.

If you do happen to fall under a lawsuit, The Campbell Law Group can diligently and effectively represent your company and help your company develop legal strategies that suit your company’s needs and helps mitigate your company’s risk.

Here are examples of how our firm can help protect you from your employees:

  • Drafting Non-Compete and Non-solicitation Agreements
  • Represent your company in any Employer-Defense Litigation that arises

Protecting yourself from employees requires an attorney which is experienced in complex business and employment legal matters and litigation and preferably an attorney who understands the nature of business and has a strong financial background.  Here at the Campbell Law Group, we have experience in helping companies protect themselves from their employees through the above examples.
