Employers are in the business of their business and rarely skilled in hiring new employees. Onboarding workers or staff improperly can lead to a plethora of unintended consequences. For example, no one will tell you that job descriptions are mandatory but job descriptions are the first thing any government agency or opposing counsel will expect you to produce. Our new employee packet has all the forms and instructions you need to understand how to onboard employees, where to store employee data, how long to store employee data, and other best practices.
So why take any chances? Contact experienced, local business attorney Natalie Lynch and senior HR consultant Susan Ward. As your attorney, Natalie will work closely with you in order to draft forms for your business and its people.

Our onboarding packet doesn’t go overboard but has all the documentation and instruction you need to keep your organization safe.
