Human Resource Audits

An effective Employee Handbook is imperative for all organizations inform their employees of what is expected of them, and what they can expect from the company.

Employee Handbooks

An effective Employee Handbook is imperative for all organizations inform their employees of what is expected of them, and what they can expect from the company. If you’re asking, “what should be in an employee handbook?” then please contact us to learn about our structured and participative approach.

Outplacement Program

Our outplacement programs are designed to assist displaced employees in their job search. Our experts provide counsel and guidance to ensure a successful transition.

This can be especially useful when an organization is downsizing or forced to lay off employees. Our professional Outplacement program will provide valuable assistance to the affected employees while ensuring the maximum comfort for remaining employees and sustaining the organization’s reputation within the community.


Affirmative Action Plans (AAPs)

Affirmative Action Plans (AAPs) are required for certain businesses dealing with federal and state government programs. If your business is doing at least $50,000 of business with the federal government and employ at least 50 people, then a written Affirmative Action plan is required to have on file to stay in compliance.

Labor Relations

J.L. Nick has extensive experience in labor relations advising clients on specific areas of union-management relations including developing bargaining plans for contract negotiations, grievance processing and contract language interpretation.

Union Avoidance

Developing a Human Resource function focused on employee engagement and involvement is imperative for keeping a positive and productive workforce and preventing a union from gaining support amongst the employees. Employees need to feel that they are treated fairly and consistently and valued by the organization. Having a proactive HR strategy and creating an environment that is conducive to employees trusting in the people running the organization is imperative.
