Employment Law

Given the fact that Americans spend more of their waking hours at work than at home, it is not surprising that the workplace has become an increasing focus of public and private litigation and government regulation.  Human relationships are the essence of the workplace environment.  Thus, it is essential that employers and employees alike understand the appropriate boundaries of the employment relationship, and the attendant rights and reasonable expectations which are part and parcel of a successful, safe, and effective workplace.

The attorneys at Adams, Stepner, Woltermann, & Dusing, PLLC represent both public and private sector employers, and actively engage them and guide them through all levels of personnel challenges and safety concerns.  We keep our client’s abreast of changes in the law and developing trends so that they can be confident that their policies and day-to-day decisions are both practical, and consistent with the law.  We help our clients develop, implement, and update personnel policies, employee handbooks, and employee benefit plans so that they are consistent with the ever changing laws and regulations.  Clients value our daily advice, and depend upon us to represent them in the face of litigation or threatened litigation, or when their programs and decisions are the subject of governmental inquiry.  We also assist our clients in navigating through the maze of local, state and federal regulations, offering advice on compliance with laws relating to equal employment opportunity, wage and hour, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, workers compensation Kentucky statutes, and other relevant laws addressing workplace matters.

Adams, Stepner, Woltermann, & Dusing, PLLC does not subscribe to one-size-fits all, cookie-cutter approach, and unlike many in the industry, we understand the differences in the rights and responsibilities between employment law in the public sector versus the private sector.
