Compliance Practice and Risk Reduction

Understanding and complying with the federal laws prohibiting discrimination in employment Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are major concerns for all employers, but can be especially difficult for growing companies. Joseph D. Carney & Associates, LLC helps clients understand their obligations, with a special emphasis on implementing well-defined human resources policies and practices that assure a workplace free of unlawful discrimination. Preventing discriminatory practices and claims of discrimination is our primary objective.
