Attorney Philip A. Nicolosi advises businesses about workplace related issues including regulations governing the way employees are hired, managed, disciplined, and terminated. These laws affect companies differently depending on size, industry, and workforce makeup. Businesses must ensure that employment policies, training programs, and everyday practices are in compliance – or risk crippling lawsuits. We emphasize preventive counseling to minimize liability and potential business interruption for employers. Understanding the legal difference between “employees” and “independent contractors” can be the difference in avoiding lawsuits against well-meaning employers who failed to comply with the law.

We help employers of all sizes remain in compliance with state and federal laws, help negotiate employment contracts and restrictive covenants and employee handbooks and social media policies.
