Ms. Leibovitch is proud to be nominated as a finalist for such a prestigious award. As part of her labor and employment law practice, Ms. Leibovitch routinely counsel clients on employee handbooks, training, and audits. Employers receive training on topics such as, recognizing sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Managers also need to know the dos and don’ts in hiring decisions, employee complaints, and complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Also, some employers use the same employment applications, handbooks, and other forms for years without updating these forms with changes in the law.
Assouline & Berlowe is available to review employer policies, procedures, systems and documentation to ensure compliance with all applicable local, state and federal employment laws. These preventative exercises will help all employers reduce the costs of non-compliance and avoid litigation in the future. The often used maxim, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, is highly applicable for these type of employment matters.
