- Staffed by lawyers from a nationally recognized employment law firm that has more than 800 attorneys in 56 offices, providing a national viewpoint and a sensitivity to regional business environments. Specifically, attorneys from the Minneapolis area office field hotline calls.
- Hotline service is free for the first 15 minutes. A discount is available for any matter that requires additional time or advice.
- Callers receive immediate answers to most employment law questions, enabling them to evaluate potential action – and to understand the ramifications of that action – when a precarious situation arises.
How it Works
- The member emails the hotline with a question about an employment situation, concerns about how employment law affects a potential action, the development of a policy, or a strategic personnel practices decision.
- A Jackson Lewis attorney provides information about the method of approaching the problem, investigating the issue, developing corrective strategies, and providing other assistance. (Note: The firm cannot provide advice about specific discharges or adverse personnel situations.)
- If the question is beyond the scope of the hotline, members may elect to retain the law firm of Jackson Lewis discounted rates.
Questions Typically Handled Over the Hotline Include:
- “Does an employee have a right of privacy in email messages that he sends or receives at work? Can we look at those messages?”
- “An employee came to me claiming sexual harassment. What should I do?”
- “A minority employee maintains that she was overlooked for a promotion because of her ethnicity and her religion. What action should I consider?”
- “I have an employee with a work comp injury, are they entitled to FMLA leave too?”
- “Are we covered by the Family Medical Leave Act? If we are, what does that require us to do?”
Jackson Lewis is prepared to offer members of MHCA a 7% discount on its hourly rates in addition to a variety of flat fee arrangements including capped fee model handbooks, administrative charge responses and preventative practices such as minimum wage and hour audits.
