Employers are at risk for any missteps in their treatment of employees, which could lead to costly litigation, administrative penalties, and a poor reputation. Ron Roach advises and assists employers in taking proactive measures aimed at enhancing workplace culture and reducing the risk of claims and penalties. Through the review of workplace policies or the creation of new ones, development of training programs, internal investigations, and advising on employment action, Mr. Roach can help employers enhance not only compliance but also workplace morale and productivity.
Mr. Roach is also experienced advising and representing employers in claims before federal and state agencies, including the EEOC, the NLRB, and ADOSH as well as litigating claims in federal and state courts alleging violations of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the False Claims Act (FCA).
Mr. Roach understands that the creation and maintenance of a compliant, ethical, and respectful workplace is fundamentally important to both employees and their employers. Below are some of the ways he can help businesses get there and find increased workplace morale while reducing risk:
- Evaluate or prepare policies and procedures
- Training and education
- Counsel on employment actions (hiring, suspension, termination, reductions-in-force)
- Employment agreements
- Restrictive covenants (non-compete, non-solicitation, non-disclosure)
- Confidentiality agreements
- Separation agreement
- Settlement agreement and releases
