Employment Law

The law firm of Mays & Kerr LLC offers employment law assistance to small businesses. Because employment law is complex, business owners benefit from consulting with a lawyer who is knowledgeable in this area of law and up to date on the latest legal developments. The attorneys at Mays & Kerr are exceptional advocates for small business owners. We can help you by providing comprehensive and reliable legal support in the following areas:

  • General corporate counsel
  • Employment litigation
  • Wage and hour compliance
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Discrimination
  • Business development
  • Employee handbook review
  • Employee relations

It is important for business owners to treat their employees fairly. Just as employers expect employees to complete their work properly, employees have the right to expect fair and timely compensation for their work. An attorney from our firm can help you create and implement policies that support you and your employees, facilitating a productive and efficient work environment.

Workplaces are filled with a diverse mixture of employees with different backgrounds and experiences. While diversity is an excellent asset to the workplace, conflicts sometimes arise. Employees have the right to be free from harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Companies should implement clear rules of conduct and grievance procedures to minimize the potential for workplace disputes.

Medical and family emergencies are part of life. Under the Family and Medical Leave Act, employees have the right to take significant time off of work without pay to handle personal and family medical situations. While these laws offer significant protections to employees, they offer protections to employers as well. If you have concerns related to your rights and obligations under the FMLA, contact the law firm of Mays & Kerr.

Resolving Workplace Disputes

Wage and hour lawsuits are on the rise. Employers must comply with all applicable laws when compensating employees. Wage and hour law is complex and a Georgia employment lawyer can help guide your decisions. Because the law depends on job function rather than title, it is important to evaluate each employee's role on a case-by-case basis to determine their classification.

In the event of a dispute, the employment lawyers at Mays & Kerr can help you resolve the issue quickly. Our attorneys are creative advocates and aggressive litigators. Because we represent both employers and employees, we are able to see both sides of every issue. We have unique insight into common workplace problems and can help you to resolve them without the need for litigation.

We take the time to know each and every one of our clients so that we can understand their unique situations.

Our goal is to find a long-lasting solution that minimizes your chances of workplace conflict. Contact an attorney at our Atlanta office to receive reliable, comprehensive legal advice.
