Employment Law | Hilton Head Island, SC

Employment Contracts and Labor Laws

Disputes regarding employment contracts, employee terminations, and employee benefits are common. Although South Carolina is an "at will" employment state, meaning that most employment arrangements may be terminated by the employer or employee at any time and for any reason or no reason, issues regarding terminations for cause, discrimination claims, and employee compensation may still arise. One important way to avoid problems with employees is by drafting high-quality employment contracts. A strong employment contract will outline all of the rights and responsibilities of both parties and specify how disputes will be handled. Because some aspects of employment are mandated by statute, they cannot be overlooked in drafting the employment contract. The employment law attorneys at JLG have experience in creating employment contracts intended to protect their clients—whether employers, employees, or independent contractors from unwarranted claims or disputes, as well as unfair competition and the unauthorized disclosure of trade secrets or proprietary information.

Employee Manuals

It is also important to have detailed employee manuals that outline clearly the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and employee. JLG attorneys can help you create the policies that you need for training, employee performance standards, and disciplinary actions. Some of these areas include:

  • Drug Testing, Screening, and Workplace Behavior
  • Computer and Internet Use
  • Bring Your Own Device
  • Privacy and Security
  • Smoking and Break Times
  • Employee Verification
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Employee Reviews
  • Workplace Safety Standards
