How can an attorney help me maintain my business?

Upon acquiring employment, employers provide their new employees with an employee handbook or policy manual. This manual contains the information employees need to succeed at their new job. They must follow the policies outlined in the handbook to produce a healthy, positive working environment. If you find that one of your employees is failing to meet these standards, you may decide to have a meeting with them. Often times, new business owners do not know how to go about questioning an employee about their behavior. If you consult with us beforehand, you can be sure that you are equipped to handle the confrontation.

In employment manuals, there should be sections regarding discrimination and sexual harassment policies in the workplace. These sections should outline the expected behavior from employees. It should rule out any behavior that makes another employee uncomfortable. As an employer, you have the responsibility of making sure your employees are taken care of.

How do I properly collect customer debt?

When faced with customer debt, the situation must be handled in a certain way. Although you have an obligation to pursue your debt in a lawful manner, customers may see it as harassment.

When you contact a debtor, make sure to do it in writing so that there is evidence of your communication. If you are still not receiving the compensation that you are entitled to, you may consider filing a legal action against them.
