Preventive Employment Counseling

Although Nilan Johnson Lewis has an impressive record of success in the courtroom, we find it particularly rewarding to partner with our clients to help them find defensible solutions to their human resources problems, and to avoid litigation in the first place. From national Fortune 50 companies to small mom-and-pop shops, employers frequently turn to Nilan Johnson Lewis for trusted advice and creative strategies for reducing employment-related risks. We like our clients to think of us as their in-house human resources counsel down the hall; and we are committed to being responsive and providing clear, practical answers to even the trickiest of questions.

The depth of our bench and expertise enables us to counsel our clients throughout the employment cycle, from application to termination. This includes issues relating to recruiting and hiring, drug and alcohol testing training, affirmative action programs, employment agreements, employee handbooks, reasonable accommodations, FMLA and disability leave, performance management, wage-and-hour audits, coaching and discipline, and termination.
