Providing Trusted Legal Counsel To Human Resources Professionals

Federal and state laws govern the employment relationship. Navigating the often unclear waters of employment laws can be challenging, even for the most experienced human resources professionals. At VanAntwerp Attorneys, LLP, we have a long history advising employers throughout Kentucky and in Ohio and West Virginia on employment related matters. Our firm has been serving the local community for almost 100 years. We understand the legal challenges employers face and the policies and procedures required to limit potential liability.

Offering Comprehensive Human Resources Support

Avoiding employment litigation begins with knowledge of the law, strong employment policies and effective training. At VanAntwerp Attorneys, LLP, our long-standing labor and employment litigation practice gives us a strategic advantage and great insight when advising human resources professionals. We know the issues that commonly lead to employment disputes and the pitfalls that employers face when trying to make business decisions while navigating employment laws.

Our human resources consulting practice takes a proactive approach by providing comprehensive human resources training and counsel. Our lawyers draft clear, concise employment policies and employee handbooks; provide management training on issues such as avoiding retaliation claims, disability discrimination, accommodations, harassment and employee discipline; counsel HR professionals on issues such as termination decisions, wage and hour laws, FMLA compliance, non-compete agreements, defeating unemployment claims; and conducting internal investigations of harassment claims and other allegations of employer misconduct.

We also provide legal counsel regarding state and federal employment laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act.

We have attorneys licensed in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia, which provides a strategic advantage to businesses that operate in the Tri-State area.

When disputes arise, we have a team of experienced litigators who will commit their energies to resolving legal matters efficiently and effectively.
