Housing cooperatives can take many forms, including apartment buildings, town homes, single-family homes and senior housing. No matter what shape or size your cooperative, it remains a corporation, and like any business, it must deal with employment issues.
Reducing Liabilities and Risks
The attorneys with our firm have more than a century of combined experience and understand the many nuances of employment law. Over the years, we have helped countless clients successfully handle a number of day-to-day operational issues. We know when to engage in forceful litigation and when to quietly settle a dispute.
With us by your side, you can be confident that your rights are protected and your interests are preserved. We provide you with the strong counsel you need to make smart legal decisions and stay well ahead of the opposition. Our knowledgeable lawyers can help you solve any number of matters, including those related to:
- The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Drafting employee manuals
- Performance evaluations
- Discrimination and sexual harassment
- Wrongful discharge
- Employees that are members
At Pentiuk, Couvreur & Kobiljak, P.C., we work with you to develop effective dispute resolution procedures and assist you in navigating the complicated maze of employment law. If possible, we encourage clients to allow management companies to hire, terminate and oversee all employees, thus shifting a significant amount of legal liability and risk away from the cooperative and onto the agent.
Helping You Resolve Employment Issues
In the United States, there are more than 1.6 million cooperative housing units. Each and every one of those units depends upon employees to function smoothly. Unfortunately, those same employees who aid a cooperative's development can also hinder its growth.
