Porter Law Group helps employers resolve their labor-related problems quickly and effectively. We strongly believe that prevention is the best policy. By establishing a proper foundation for dealing with employment issues, many problems can be avoided before they arise.

Our areas of practice include:

• Employment problem prevention
• Development of employment policies and practices
• Employee handbooks
• At-will employee policies
• Employment contracts
• Confidentiality agreements
• Non-competition agreements (when legal)
• Employee discipline
• Anti-discrimination policies
• Exempt vs. non-exempt determinations
