HRW’s flat-fee program, the Labor and Employment Services Program (LESP), is like having a team of in-house labor and employment attorneys at the ready. Clients enrolled in the LESP pay a flat monthly fee in return for unlimited consultation on labor and employment issues, regular managerial training and education, periodic site visits, and annual document review.
Developed over twenty-five years ago to help non-profit institutions effectively budget for legal services, the LESP has grown into a service that helps many businesses and institutions across a spectrum of industries, non-profit and for-profit alike, approach their labor and employment legal needs in a cost-effective manner. LESP members are able to anticipate the cost of their labor and employment needs while eliminating the disincentives and reactive nature of traditional fee-based legal services. LESP members are well-positioned to proactively address workplace issues before they become problematic and costly.
The heart of the LESP program is unlimited “off the clock” consultation. LESP members enjoy 24/7 access to HRW’s experienced team of attorneys who will help navigate difficult workplace situations and provide real time advice regarding such issues as:
LESP members also receive quarterly in-house training seminars for managers and supervisors. Seminar topics are tailored to each client’s particular needs, but popular topics include supervisory skills and best practices, sexual harassment prevention, managing leaves of absence, avoiding wage and hour mistakes, and handling difficult terminations. For a more extensive listing of seminar topics see HRW’s Leadership Education Institute (LEI) brochure.
LESP members also benefit from an annual review of key employment documents such as the employee handbook and application form.
