Helping Business Owners Adhere To Labor Laws
When you are running your business, remaining current with labor laws may not be a priority. If you run afoul of these regulations, however, you will need to shift your focus from day-to-day operations to addressing emerging legal issues.
For years, our attorneys at Steele Law Group have helped Houston’s employers adhere to federal and state labor laws. We design straightforward compliance programs that can be implemented promptly and monitored efficiently. We strive to take this complicated legal burden off your shoulders so that you can focus on developing your enterprise.
Reviewing Workplace Policies And Procedures To Ensure Compliance
In Texas, labor laws establish workplace standards for wages, work site safety and conduct toward employees. Our attorneys are well-versed in these standards.
We use this knowledge when we review handbooks and protocols to determine whether your workplace practices comply with industry, state and federal regulations that relate to:
- The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- Fair labor rights, including overtime requirements and record-keeping
- Wage deductions
- Designation of paydays
- Child labor laws
- Paid time off
Maintaining detailed records is a critical component of compliance. Our lawyers know which information business owners are required to keep on hand in the event of an outside audit or an employee’s request. We can establish documentation protocols that make records easy to access and provide to auditors or other interested parties.
Our lawyers have represented employers operating in a range of industries, so they are aware of the concerns that you face at all stages of your business’s life cycle. Whether you need assistance with an administrative matter or a labor dispute, we are ready to advocate for your interests. Our litigators have compiled an impressive record of success defending against employment and labor-related lawsuits.
