When an employer receives correspondence from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) or any other administrative agency, it is important for the business to seek legal counsel. Businesses that choose to handle these requests for information on their own, often learn the hard way that an attorney’s assistance in the early stages could have reduced the risk of an adverse finding or a lawsuit. We represent employers of all sizes when it comes to cooperating and negotiating with these types of governmental agencies. We help employers determine the most efficient course of action at the outset of an investigation.
Our attorneys regularly advise employers and human resource professionals on the best way to handle complaints of any kind, including providing guidance on conducting a proper investigation of employee complaints. All employee complaints should be taken seriously and legitimately investigated because it is the complaints that go ignored that often result in a lawsuit. Many clients utilize us on the front end so that we can help them avoid a lawsuit.
