Resolving Business Legal Matters
Creative — Responsive — Cost-Effective

Dealing with employment issues can be challenging. At the Terry Jessop & Bitner employment law firm, we help our business clients avoid employee lawsuits by taking a proactive approach. Our firm counsels employers on employment issues, including employment handbooks, wage and hour laws, employment contracts, hiring and termination of employees, harassment policies, and compliance with employment laws such as Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

  • Employee handbooks and policies: To ensure that everyone understands the rules, we help employers review and revise workplace policies with everyone in the company.
  • “At-will” or “on contract”: Managers must take special care that actions do not imply employees have a contract with the business (implied employment agreement). “At-will” employment policies need to be understood by all employees.
  • Wage and hour disputes: We help our business clients stay in compliance with all wage and hour rules and defend them against wage and hour claims.
  • Noncompete agreements: Employers have the right to protect their confidential and proprietary information, but they do not have the right to unfairly limit an employee’s right to work. We will help you navigate noncompete, nonsolicitation and nondisclosure provisions.

Terry Jessop & Bitner offers employment law clients the advantage of small-firm affordability. You can count on results more typically expected from large law firms.
