This innovative and cost-effective advisory service provides your business with unlimited monthly access to an attorney.
How it Works
Too often, employers are hesitant to contact legal counsel to discuss employment-
related legal questions. Cost is cited as a key factor - employers are tired of
receiving expensive bills from an attorney for nothing more than periodic telephone
counseling. A brief telephone call with an attorney, however, can avoid significant
and costly mistakes. To ensure your business is never hesitant to reach out to an
attorney in a proactive way, we have developed the Compass Employment
A designated company contact (or contacts) will be afforded the opportunity to
contact Neumyer Law, LLC by telephone and discuss any human resource related
legal matters or questions. Topics might include employment benefits, workers’
compensation, employee discipline, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour
matters, FMLA leaves of absence, restrictive covenants (non-compete and non-solicitation), disability related concerns, HIPAA, federal healthcare reform and unemployment compensation. Your company receives the piece of mind that its day-to-day employment issues and decisions have been vetted by legal counsel. At the same time, the company can ensure that its investment of legal dollars is known in advance no matter how much the service is used.
Access to HR-Related Forms
In additional to the advisory service, your company will receive access to a database of knowledge and information, including personnel policies and procedures, disciplinary forms, performance reviews, job descriptions, exit interview forms, and employment applications. Because every company is different, these forms should never be used “as-is.” Through the counseling service, however, Neumyer Law, LLC will discuss how these forms may be used and tailored for use by your company. Access to this database is included at no additional charge.
When Telephone Counseling Is Not Enough
Unfortunately, not all employment-related issues can be handled through a phone call. Your business may face wage and hour claims, complaints of discrimination and/or harassment, and unemployment compensation hearings. More complicated issues may arise that require in-depth legal analysis and research. When these more sophisticated legal services are required (or when a written work product is preferred), your company will qualify for a discounted hourly rate of $125. Because Neumyer Law, LLC will likely have been involved with the issue or concern through the advisory service, your company will not have to pay legal counsel to “get up to speed.” Communication is key, and the company will always be notified when an advisory service becomes a separately billable event.
