Stoneman, Chandler & Miller LLP (SCM) was originally formed in 1945 as a traditional labor law firm. Since then we have evolved into a full service labor, employment and education law firm engaged in the representation of public and private employers and public schools.
SCM counsels and assists clients in a broad spectrum of labor, personnel and employment related issues ranging from the application of wage and hour laws to dealing with the National Labor Relations Act, Davis Bacon Act, OSHA, COBRA, FMLA and the ever changing anti-discrimination laws and accompanying regulations. We have significant experience in the development and implementation of personnel policies, preparation of affirmative action programs, the handling of employee problems, establishment of employee communication programs (e.g. employee handbooks), and the training of managers, and supervisors. We can assist employers in the creation and administration of salary and fringe benefit programs as well.
Last week, a federal judge in Texas halted the implementation of new federal overtime regulations that were set to take effect December 1, 2016. As many of you know, these new regulations would increase the salary level necessary for certain white collar employees to be classified as exempt from overtime pay.
