In essence, we serve as “general counsel” to companies who cannot yet afford to hire a staff attorney.
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Central Florida employment law firm Wilson McCoy, P.A. recently introduced its Work Matters Small Business Retainer Program. Seen as an alternative to traditional hourly billing, the Wilson McCoy Small Business Retainer Program is designed to enhance access to regular advice, improve legal compliance, and reduce fees of litigations fees.
Nathan McCoy, lead attorney behind the program said, “We recognized that some employers, concerned about running up a legal bill, sometimes hesitate to contact attorneys to ask about what is perceived to be only a routine employment issue, only to discover later that the issue has escalated into a major and costly dispute.”
Through the Work Matters Small Business Retainer Program, clients pay a flat monthly fee to receive regular employment law advice and deep discounts on litigation services. At no additional cost, Wilson McCoy, P.A. attorneys will visit a client’s business and determine the client’s employment and business law needs. McCoy stated that this allows the firm to gain a better understanding of a client’s business and workplace, enhancing its ability to assist a client in avoiding or resolving disputes with minimal cost or disruption.
“Wage and hour issues (like unpaid wages and overtime), non-compete agreements, and a lack of policies and procedures and anti-discrimination training are all areas where small businesses frequently run into big legal problems”, McCoy said. “Through the Work Matters retainer program, we can now counsel clients through all stages of the employment relationship starting with appropriate hiring and termination procedures then through the many complex issues and questions arising in between. In essence, we serve as “general counsel” to companies who cannot yet afford to hire a staff attorney.”
Wilson McCoy, P.A. conducts seminars and compliance training for its client’s employees and managers in areas such as sexual harassment prevention, reasonable accommodation of disabilities, discrimination, progressive discipline, wage and hour issues, and assists corporate clients in conducting internal investigations.
