Assertive Employment Law Attorney in Henderson, Nevada
Ensuring compliance, safeguarding success A profitable business serves the needs of labor, management and the marketplace. But friction between labor and management often causes complications that hurt a company’s competitiveness and threaten the livelihoods of everyone involved. At Patrick N. Chapin, Ltd. A Professional Corporation, I have more than 20 years of experience defending the rights of workers to have safe, hospitable and equitable employment; and defending management’s right to have productivity and performance. My experience on both sides of labor and employment issues makes me uniquely qualified to assist you with comprehensive and lasting solutions to issues that can poison workplace morale and undermine a company’s success.
Correcting power imbalances I understand that employees often hesitate to confront employers, especially in troubled economic times. I empower individuals to receive the justice they deserve and assist with cases involving:
Unpaid meal and rest breaks
Unsafe work conditions
Challenging discrimination in the workplace Federal law prohibits employers from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:
By applying extensive knowledge of state and federal labor and employment laws, I use objective metrics to prove or disprove acts of discrimination.
Helping employers build strong labor relations For businesses to plan and expand, operations must be predictable and reliable. Adherence to laws governing labor relations ensures a company’s legal operation. I provide employers with day-to-day compliance counseling and just and fair resolutions to workplace disputes — solutions that advance labor relations and further your business success.
Supporting productive workplace conditions Following complex legal procedures takes valuable time away from management’s real job — running and promoting business. For more than 20 years, I have counseled businesses on procedure and fulfillment under labor law, including:
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
Workers Compensation Program
Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
Labor–Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA)
Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
Consumer Credit Protection Act (CPCA)
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)
Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA)
Safeguarding a productive business Just as your company retains certain specific responsibilities for its employees, workers are obligated to comply with work policies and legal requirements that affect your business. Incompetent, unethical or unlawful behavior of a worker has potentially devastating consequences. I assist businesses in:
Developing clear, written employment policies
Drafting employment contracts
Drafting non-compete agreements
Drafting nondisclosure agreements
Addressing suspicions of a worker’s unlawful or unethical acts
