One focus of the firm’s practice is to help clients avoid litigation by adopting and implementing effective, preventive human-resources programs. With a comprehensive program in place, an employer can expect fewer workplace challenges, improved human-resources functioning, and a reduced need for costly legal interventions.

The first step in developing such a program is training key management in employment policies and procedures that reflect current law and protect the company from exposure. Educated, proactive management is a company’s best defense against today’s workplace challenges. Managers at all levels should receive training in the following areas:

  • Employment applications
  • Interviewing and background checks
  • Employment agreements and contracts
  • Employee handbooks
  • At-will employment
  • Discipline and discharge
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Mediation and arbitration
  • Rules of conduct
  • Protection of proprietary information
  • Technology usage
  • Wage and hour compliance

The high stakes associated with many workplace issues often require specialized assistance from experts in related fields. The firm has developed a cadre of outstanding consultants available to our client companies, including:

  • Private investigators
  • Substance abuse consultants
  • Forensic and document-recovery specialists
  • Employee screening consultants
  • Insurance brokers
  • Outplacement consultants
  • Psychiatrists and psychologists
  • Workplace safety specialists
  • Sexual harassment consultants
  • Stress management consultants

SFSSW Annual Client Seminar is the firm’s flagship client seminar. Thousands of executives from hundreds of companies have attended the seminar over the past 30 years. Widely praised for its state-of-the-art content and immediate usefulness for attendees, the seminar is an outstanding tool for all employers. With a focus on preventive labor and employment law strategies, the seminar is ideal for any company conducting business in California.
