Human Resources, Employee Relations and Benefits

Our goal is to help clients manage the legal risks associated with hiring, supervising, and terminating employees, while following best management practices and complying with governmental requirements applicable to all aspects of the employment relationship. We emphasize preventive counseling, and offer training on subjects ranging from sexual harassment to union avoidance.

On the benefits side, we work actively with employers to design, draft and assist in the ongoing administration of 401(k) plans, profit sharing plans, traditional defined benefit, cash balance and money purchase pension plans, tax-sheltered 403(b) annuity plans, employee bonus plans and severance plans. Our attorneys advise on tax law requirements (including correction of operational errors in plan administration through IRS correction programs) and ERISA fiduciary and investment implications. We also have extensive experience counseling employers with respect to the treatment of benefit plans in corporate transactions.
