Comprehensive Title VII Representation from Experienced Business Law Attorneys

Diligent assistance for clients in labor and employment law matters

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employer discrimination on the basis of race, gender, color, national origin, or religion. An employee allegation can significantly burden a company and result in monetary damages, so it is important to implement policies that support compliance with this federal law. A knowledgeable Cleveland employment law attorney helps your business create internal safeguards to prevent Title VII violations. Gertsburg Licata provides companies with trustworthy legal guidance in the area of employment discrimination.

Providing businesses with trusted Title VII guidance

Prevention is an important aspect of Title VII protection. Businesses can best safeguard themselves by creating a culture where discriminatory practices are prohibited and sanctioned appropriately. At Gertsburg Licata, we counsel our business clients on employment law requirements and help them implement strategies for consistent compliance within the workplace, including:

  • Employee handbooks. The employee handbook provides a written explanation of management expectations, requirements and prohibitions. Our lawyers help businesses create comprehensive handbooks that include adequate employment discrimination prohibitions.
  • Anti-discrimination policies. Case law demonstrates that a comprehensive anti-discrimination policy provides employers with some protection against Title VII claims. A skilled employment attorney assists companies in drafting adequate and useful policies that promote employment discrimination prohibitions.
  • Human resource training. Once anti-discrimination policies are implemented, companies should ensure that all employees and managers are adequately trained to comply with them. We assist with best practices training, including employee and supervisor instruction.

Our attorneys know that much is at stake in your business, so we diligently work to help you strategize against Title VII allegations.
