Employment Law



Even the best-intentioned organizations can find themselves on the wrong side of employment law. It’s complicated, constantly changing, and sometimes—quite frankly—contrary to common sense.


Legal issues can cost employers big dollars and take a toll on your reputation and workplace morale. Prevention is your greatest ally, but how do you ward off trouble when you’re not even sure what it really looks like or how to comply with regulations you don’t even know exist? Associated Industries’ internal counsel knows—and can help steer you out of harm’s way.

How it works for you—a members' point of view.

Having the ability to call the HR and legal teams with questions is one of the best tools I have at my disposal. A perfect example is a call I made to the hotline on a FMLA situation I had never dealt with before. The HR and legal teams took the time to do the research to make sure I went forward in the best way for the organization but with the understanding that our employee’s needs were of utmost importance. I know it took a lot of time and I am grateful they are just a phone call away when I need them. Whether they answer my question on-the-spot or go back to the team first, I know I am getting the best advice.
