Individual Policy Updates

Employment law has become increasingly complex with the trend toward regional legislation at the state and municipal level. Pay equity, minimum wage, sick leave, and anti-sexual harassment legislation quickly take established company policies and practices out of compliance, creating significant risk for employers. Applying updates across multiple locations adds an additional layer of complexity for some employers. Let Trüpp simplify your compliance efforts. Our experienced professionals stay up to date with new and emerging legislation and craft policies that align with these requirements whether cross-regional or at a single location.
