Dallas Employment Lawyer Explains How Employers Can Help Their Employment Lawyers Increase Efficiency
Most businesses need employment law attorneys to litigate disputes with employees and to provide general employment law advice. Keith Clouse, a Dallas, Texas employment law counselor, suggests ways an employer can minimize the expenses associated with such services.
First, the employer should always contact a lawyer at the first sign of legal trouble; often employment law issues can be resolved quickly (and thus cheaply) if caught and handled right away.
Before meeting with counsel, the employer should fully prepare. A human resources representative should gather all the files and documents related to the situation and organize them in an easy-to-understand system. Doing so avoids legal fees for an attorney’s time spent sorting and organizing paperwork. The human resources representative may also wish to prepare a concise presentation of the facts, including a chronology of events and a list of the key people involved. Doing so enables the attorney to jump straight into analyzing the situation. Of course, any such document should be clearly marked as a confidential attorney-client communication.
