Employee legal issues seldom wait.

When HR issues arise, they’re rarely easy. Sometimes they can be downright messy. And since they involve people, they can be highly sensitive. If you are a corporate executive or HR manager with a full workload, or if you are an attorney with a busy practice, where do you turn when you need more resources to deal with HR issues?

If you are a labor and employment attorney, you may need to bolster your own staff by contracting with a specialist who speaks your language. Or, if you are a corporate executive, HR leader or non-profit director with limited in-house legal and HR resources, you may not be sure where to start.

Brodin HR Law can help you deal with HR legal issues effectively and efficiently. Jeff Brodin offers a unique combination of more than 25 years of legal training and practical, hands-on business experience in the field of labor and employment law and HR compliance.

You need knowledge to make tough decisions.

As an ally skilled in labor and employment law, Brodin HR Law can help you sort through the issues, understand current legal guidelines and HR laws, and know what your options are.

Wise use of resources can help manage risk

and control costs.

Time is almost always of the essence in complying with the constantly changing web of HR laws, rules and regulations. And HR issues can arise suddenly, with little time and limited resources available to evaluate the facts, conduct thorough investigations, assess risks, or determine effective solutions, including training. Brodin HR Law can help you assess risk, put your resources where they count most and control costs through creative flat fee arrangements.

Confidentiality is often essential.

Perhaps you want to craft an employment agreement or plan for a sensitive termination of an employee. Or maybe you want to assess the risks of taking certain actions. A skilled, objective third party like Jeff Brodin can help you if:

  • You need to conduct an objective investigation that involves sensitive issues
  • An issue involves a high-level staff member, executive or colleague
  • You’re just not sure where to start and hesitate to discuss the matter internally until you have some guidance.
