EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
Swartz Law provides a variety of employment law services to startups and small businesses. While many emerging and even established small businesses do not need, or have the funds for, full-time legal counsel, the ever increasing and complicated web of employment laws still apply. We provide the advice and guidance you need to have confidence that your workplace is in order. Let us focus on the law so that you can focus on growing your business.
Avoidance. Early Detection. Resolution.
Proactive compliance measures are the best way to avoid employment law disputes and keep your workforce happy. When issues do arise, early detection and investigation are crucial to determine the appropriate response and ensure a swift resolution. However, even the most diligent employers will find themselves involved in lawsuits. We seek to resolve matters wherever possible. If litigation becomes necessary we vigorously defend our clients and work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome.
