FCD Law advises companies on all personnel-related issues having a legal dimension: compliance with discrimination laws, wage and hour laws, and laws outlining leave obligations; development of personnel policies, forms, procedures, and agreements; and design of performance management frameworks. FCD Law also provides day-to-day guidance on employment situations; provides supervisor training; performs workplace investigations and compliance audits; develops diversity management strategies that address inclusion-related goals while furthering business objectives; develops severance plans and reduction in force strategies; and represents employers in administrative proceedings, in state and federal court trials (as lead counsel), and in collective bargaining grievance arbitrations.
