Over several decades of HR experience, I consider myself an expert on employment compliance. I am NOT an attorney and therefore know when to pick up the phone and call the LEGAL experts. Maximizing billable hours, I furnish clients with concise issue descriptions and educated responses, enabling informed decisions and confirmation.
Collaborating with HR and attorneys is crucial for businesses to navigate complex legal and employee-related matters. HR ensures a compliant, productive workforce, while attorneys provide legal expertise to protect the company’s interests. Together, they create a robust framework for addressing disputes, compliance issues, and employee concerns, ultimately safeguarding the business’s reputation and financial stability. This partnership fosters a well-rounded approach to risk management and supports a thriving, legally sound organization.
My go-to resource is Elisa Ruer, due to her expertise and timely responsiveness.
Her guidance in tough spots, like litigious terminations and document reviews (e.g., severance letters, NDAs), has been invaluable on multiple occasions. If you don’t have a trusted attorney in your network, let me introduce you to Elisa — it would be my pleasure!
