Overseeing the Employment Relationship

To put it simply, an HR manager’s job is all about overseeing the employment relationship from the moment it is created to the time when that relationship ends. The HR manager is responsible for all record keeping, communicating between the employer and the employees, and training each employee for the job they are hired to complete. Additionally, the HR manager conducts employee performance reviews, provides feedback on how employees can improve their performance and often disciplines employees their conduct or performance falls below expectations.

We have advised and helped numerous HR managers of both large and small employers with the employment relationship. Being an HR manager doesn’t mean you know all the answers yourself. Our job is to provide each HR manager with the answers they need. From handling basic grievances to disciplining and/or terminating employees our Idaho Employment Attorneys help each HR manager we represent protect the employer and maintain good relations with employees.

Implementing Applicable Employment Laws

In addition to being an expert on employee relationships, an HR manager is also required to not only know and understand but also to implement and apply all federal and state employment laws. This is often an overwhelming task for an HR Manager. Our team of Employment lawyers in Idaho assist HR managers in accomplishing this task.

The laws that an HR Manager must implement in the employment relationship include: wage and hour; minimum wage; overtime pay; protected leave such as the FMLA leave; preventing discrimination of any sort including that involving age, race, disability, gender, and or religion; preventing sexual harassment of any sort; preventing a hostile work environment or bullying from occurring; providing worker’s compensation and other required benefits to each employee; and complying with other state and federal laws. We also assist HR managers in keeping up to date on each of these laws any time a change or an update occurs.

Additionally, our Employment lawyers in Idaho assist HR managers during the termination process of an employee which is often difficult and emotional. Alternatively, we have experience helping HR managers negotiate, prepare, and obtain severance agreements when the employment relationship terminates. We also have decades of experience in assisting HR managers in defending the employer whenever an employee brings either an administrative claim or litigation against the employer.
