Legal Services For Small Businesses
Small-business owners must wear many hats and legal issues related to workplace policies may not be top-of-mind. One lawsuit, however, can quickly change all of this and also have a negative impact on a business’ reputation, financial security and ability to remain competitive and profitable.
By taking a proactive approach, the attorneys at Spragins, Barnett & Cobb, PLC, help business owners craft employment policies related to drug use, noncompete clauses and sexual harassment that ultimately protect and promote business interests.
In cases where an employer is the target of an employment lawsuit, we conduct a thorough investigation and develop a legal strategy that addresses both a business’ short- and long-term needs and goals.
