Owning a business in the 21st century comes with many hazards. As more workers stand up for their rights in the workplace, some Cincinnati employers are being targeted unfairly.
Perhaps it is because many employees fail to understand the difference between mistreatment and performing their job duties. On the other hand, maybe it is because people see so many workers emerge victorious in civil litigation suits. Whatever the reason, Ohio employers need protection from civil litigation more than ever.
How can a law firm help?
Prevention is often the key to avoiding unwarranted claims of discrimination, harassment or retaliation in your workplace. An attorney can help you address these issues in your employee handbook and policy documents. For example, make sure your handbook states your discrimination policies clearly to avoid misinterpretation by employees.
We know it is hard for many business-minded people to draft effective policies and handbooks without assistance. Cultivating a relationship with a law firm experienced in handling civil litigation claims provides you with authoritative help. You can turn to your lawyer for guidance in creating policy documents in a way that your workers can understand.
An added benefit of seeking help with your anti-discrimination policies is that you will already have an advocate on your side who is familiar with your business. If one of your employees makes an unfounded claim that leads to civil litigation, your attorney can step in and defend your company with an excellent chance of success.
