Employment Law

Employment Law

Understanding and complying with federal and state employment laws is a full time job – often, one that our small business clients are not staffed to perform.  Failure to comply with these ever-changing laws carries consequences which are increasingly severe, as government regulation in the area of labor and employment law increases.   The employment lawyers at Andersen, Tate and Carr, P.C. believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  We empower our clients to establish policies, procedures and practices that keep their businesses in compliance with the myriad laws governing their workforces in order to minimize employment-related liability.

Minimizing employment-related risk requires employers to take proactive compliance measures: implementation of employee policies and procedures, supervisor training, appropriate handling of employee complaints and employee investigations and good management of disciplinary matters and terminations.  Our attorneys are skilled in assisting clients in the assessment of their current employment landscape and in recommending improvements to promote compliance in every aspect of employment law – from wage and hour audits to harassment training, and everything in between.

Always bearing in mind Andersen, Tate and Carr, P.C.’s deep connection with the local metropolitan Atlanta and Gwinnett County small business community, and recognizing our obligation to provide our clients with economic, sensible and tailor-made solutions for their employment issues, our employment attorneys provide a complete range of employment services, including:
