We Can Handle Your HR and Employment Law Needs

Operating a small business often means addressing difficult employment issues relating to hiring, firing, employee claims of discrimination and a broad spectrum of other issues. Frequently, this must occur without the protection of a human resources department.

The law firm of Stebelton Snider, in Lancaster, Ohio, offers experienced legal counsel to assist small business owners facing these issues as well as other issues typically handled by a human resources or legal department in larger companies. We focus on advising clients proactively in order to maintain compliance with the law and avoid liability. Contact our Lancaster attorneys to learn more about our HR consulting services.
