Employment Counseling

Turner Padget’s Employment Counseling Practice Group provides counseling services to management in all employment and labor-related matters.  Our clients range from large complex corporations with employees that number in the thousands to mid-level and small businesses with detailed employment requirements and benefits.  Our legal services to our clients in this area include:

  • Employee Handbooks

  • Employment Discrimination
  • FMLA Compliance
  • Hiring and Discharge

Employment law requires a team of seasoned and knowledgeable professionals and Turner Padget has a team of professionals that have the experience and knowledge to serve our clients.  We are proud that two members of our team, Frank Shuler and Reggie Belcher, are certified by the South Carolina Supreme Court as specialists in Employment/Labor Law, a designation that is earned by fewer than 1 percent of South Carolina attorneys.
