McGuireWoods has developed a comprehensive online guide to help companies navigate Washington, D.C.’s complex employment laws. The 100-page, fully annotated publication is designed to help human resources professionals, in-house counsel and small-business owners avoid pitfalls and obtain answers to common questions about the District’s workplace laws.
Members of the firm’s Labor & Employment Department created “An Employer’s Guide to D.C. Employment Statutes,” which covers leave laws, wage-and-hour laws and other key statutes in a question-and-answer format. For access, sign up on the online guide’s registration page.
“We believe the guide will be a valuable and user-friendly resource that answers important questions for companies doing business in the nation’s capital,” Thomas said.
McGuireWoods’ labor and employment lawyers advise local, national and multinational employers — including small businesses, government entities and Fortune 500 companies — on compliance with state, federal and international law; internal investigations; federal contracting; and executive compensation. The firm earned national Tier 1 rankings for employment law and labor and employment litigation in the 2020 edition of U.S. News-Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms.”
