Marquee Law Group knows that legal issues bog down many good businesses, and that the most cost-effective way to deal with a lawsuit is to minimize your risk of ever being involved in one. At Marquee, our goal is to help minimize disruptions and allow your company to thrive.
Marquee Law Group’s Employer Defense Division can help your business avoid run-ins with the Employment Development Department by making sure your business complies with all state and federal regulations such as employee meal breaks, overtime compensation, and sick pay. If you are involved in potential litigation, our team of experienced attorneys and counselors will work with you to defend against impending lawsuits, EDD and EEO administrative reviews, and unruly departing employees.
At Marquee Law Group, we will work to avoid or minimize your legal issues, by ensuring proper procedures are in place and precautions have been made in advance. Our team of experienced attorneys and counselors will work with you to create or revise a personalized employee handbook for your business. Additionally, we provide seminars that educate employees about your company’s policies to minimize the risk of future lawsuits.
