HR Consulting

Employment law and human resources questions are often tied closely together. When our business clients contact us with a question, the advice we give often involves legal analysis and counsel on human resources practices.

As our law firm enjoys a close relationship with many business clients in the Coachella Valley, we know that many local companies cannot afford highly skilled in-house HR personnel. However, small and mid-sized businesses are still required to comply with many of the state and federal laws that affect larger companies.

Our team of HR professionals works with our clients to help them understand HR best practices and provide them with ongoing support and assistance. They collectively bring extensive HR expertise which translates into a valuable resource for our clients. They have worked in HR leadership positions for large Fortune 500 companies and have broad experience in all facets of human resources. Their hands-on practical expertise includes business planning, HR operational audits and HR generalist issues. The combination of cost-effective HR consultation and employment law counsel enables us to provide a complete package of representation to our clients.

Representation under this program begins with a comprehensive HR operational review of our clients’ policies and practices. We then develop a customized action plan for our clients and provide guidance in critical areas, such as:

  • Employment best practices
  • Hiring and termination
  • Compensation
  • Leaves of absences
  • Non-discrimination compliance
  • Health and safety
  • I-9 compliance
  • Wage and hour practices
  • Performance appraisals and discipline
  • Workplace privacy
  • Reasonable accommodations
  • Drug testing issues

Clients under this program have unlimited telephone access to our HR professionals and lawyers for advice on all human resources related issues, training, and education.

This innovative dimension to the scope of our practice allows F&M to advise our clients on employment and human relations matters on a level that was not feasible before the advent of this program. For a flat monthly fee, our clients receive ongoing HR consulting, as well as education and guidance enabling them to manage their own human resources needs with existing personnel and at a cost that is significantly less than hiring experienced HR staff. Clients who sign up for this program also receive a substantial discount on legal fees for all as-needed representation provided by our lawyers beyond the scope of HR representation.
