At the height of the pandemic, over two million New Jerseyans filed for unemployment. Now that the worst has passed, New Jersey residents are ready to get back to normal life. But many employees are hesitant to rise and grind. Fortunately, we’re helping small businesses attract employees post-pandemic. Dressel/Malikschmitt works as outside general counsel to New Jersey small businesses who want to retool their employment contracts and employee handbooks and become magnets for quality employees.
Slowing Going Back To Business
Generous unemployment benefits, and a plethora of open positions at companies that shed employees during the economic downturn, mean workers are taking their time going back to work. New Jersey workers have the ability to search for something that is a good fit or offers them more, and they are choosing to do so.
Businesses are rolling out the red carpet for new hires, raising wages, and offering unique incentives as they attempt to staff up following the pandemic. The competition is fierce, but Dressel/Malikschmitt is helping our clients get an edge.
Updated employment contracts and employee handbooks prove to employees that statements about improved wages, work life balance, and improved benefits aren’t empty promises. Getting everything in writing can also benefit employers who need to ensure compliance with a myriad of state and federal employment regulations or face future legal challenges.
Working with the experienced attorneys at Dressel/Malikschmitt to craft employment policies and get them down in writing can prevent legal headaches down the line, and take this tedious task off of your plate.

Dressel/Malikschmitt can help you update your written policies and procedures to make them more attractive to today’s workforce, while still keeping you in compliance with employment regulations and protecting you from future legal claims.
