Counseling & Training

Butzel Longs employment law team devotes a significant portion of its practice to counseling and training clients human resources personnel in employment matters. This helps employers avoid lawsuits and helps manage labor expenses. We successfully guide employers through difficult and risky labor and employment situations involving benefits administration, facility closings and mergers, non-discrimination compliance, reductions in force, strikes, terminations, and WARN Act notifications.

We also help employers develop affirmative action plans, drug and alcohol testing programs, employee disciplinary procedures, employee handbooks, ERISA Family Medical Leave Act policies, and reasonable accommodation of disabled employees guidelines.

Our attorneys have developed over thirty on-site training seminars for human resources personnel. These seminars aim to ensure understanding of various employment laws so that supervisors and managers can recognize, address, and avoid potential problem situations.
