Preparing Employment Documents that Clearly Outline Responsibilities

At the Law Office of Frederic A. Marzilli, our legal advocates attempt to proactively avoid employment disputes by preparing documents that clearly establish the relationship between the parties, their responsibilities and their duties. We prepare employment documents, such as:

  • Employment contracts– I meet with clients one-on-one to determine their interests and draft employment contracts that are geared toward protecting them. I can also review proposed contracts and advise clients on the potential consequences of various provisions in these
  • Employee handbooks– I provide updated advice to employers regarding current state and federal guidelines and ensure that they are in compliance with these measures.
  • Employment policies– If you are an employer, I can review your existing policies and make recommendations to improve them.

I can also explain whether such provisions are legally compliant and enforceable.
