Employment Law

We help you when a crisis hits and proactively help your organization to prevent future issues by implementing policies and processes that are aligned with evolving law.

How We Helped

Over the years we have provided counseling and advice on all aspects of the employment relationship. Cousins Subs has always had the in-house capability to address HR issues, but when legal questions arose, Cousins Subs has relied on BV to assist with the tough issues. We have assisted legal compliance issues, involving FMLA, FLSA and the federal and state laws.

Cousins Subs has always focused on doing the right thing and treating its employees fairly. We have worked with them over the years to assist with legal compliance and to work with Company management to come up with common sense solutions to HR issues.
