Labor & Employment
The road to find, train, manage, and develop talent—and sometimes terminate —employees is paved with regulatory challenges and legal risks. Businesses must establish effective human resources management strategies that avoid the costs and disruption of litigation.
With relatively high operating expenses and unpredictable profits, owners and operators of restaurants and other hospitality-focused businesses must manage the uncertain and ever-evolving demands of the law with never-ending business pressures.
Poricanin works with companies and start-ups in the manufacturing space with respect to all legal and business matters – including corporate, tax, real estate, labor relations, executive compensation, general labor and employment and more.
What Our Clients Say
Emina worked with us on evaluating a potential LHCSA for purchase, conducting the due diligence on that company and then tirelessly worked with us as we negotiated the purchase. Emina also handled all the regulatory work required to submit the consulting and management agreements. We were most impressed with her industry knowledge and she was able to identify some issues down the line that, thankfully, we addressed in advance and head on before getting into the deal.
New York City owner of a LHCSA
Emina has been our employment attorney for years. She is practical, to-the-point direct, and she explains complicated legal issues in a way that make sense. As the Human Services Director of a large services organization with hundreds of employees, we have many day-to-day issues with our workers. Emina and I often joke that our organization has never-ending quirky HR issues. But I can call Emina at any time of the day and she will respond and help us get through the problem. She is an indispensable part of our organization.
Human Services Director of a New York company
Emina represented my home care agency when the New York Department of Health came in and tried to close us down. The Department was taking an unreasonable and unforgiving position, and they were ready to take our entire business away. But Emina managed to negotiate a resolution that allowed me to continue operating my business. I will forever be grateful to her.
Owner of an Upstate Home Care Agency
Poricanin represented us in a Department of Labor audit, and the investigator on our case was alleging over five different violations for hundreds of our workers. The Department was threatening to put us out of business with what they were looking to collect from us for back pay, penalties and interest. Emina became involved in the audit just in time. She worked with the Department to negotiate a settlement that was reasonable and acceptable to us. We are still in business and know much more about Labor Laws thanks to her clear and specific explanations.
Owner of a New York City business
We have worked with Emina for almost a decade. Her energy and enthusiasm to help clients is unbeatable. There are many challenges in running a home care agency, especially in New York. But Emina understands our business and all the considerations that go into running a business. She has always been able to take a problem and offer us a practical business solution to the issue. We have saved thousands of dollars by having the benefit of her wisdom and experience.
