Carolyn M. Horton counsels employers and helps them create compliant policies and procedures for various employment matters, including wage and hour, MIOSHA, and sexual harassment.

Carolyn helps keep clients apprised of the latest legal changes to ensure employers and organizations can adapt as quickly as possible to the legal challenges they may face. She provides support to a range of employers in matters ranging from wrongful termination arbitrations to wage and hour litigation.

While creating compliant policies is vital to an employer-employee relationship, supporting these policies with practices and procedures is vital to the success of that relationship and for business. Employers often encounter dilemmas when they seek to create employee handbooks and general policies for their businesses and operations, including how much and what information to include in these important documents. Carolyn’s practice not only focuses on supplying information to employers to help answer these questions pursuant to the client’s specific business and industry needs but also on how to implement the appropriate procedures to change those policies into practices.

Through the implementation of client-specific, compliant policies, Carolyn aids employers in determining how to create the work environment that is most beneficial to their business and their relationships with employees.
