Jordan Kaplan specialize in employment law, offering valuable advice and counsel to help clients maintain compliance with employment regulations. If you are in the construction industry in Colorado, it is important to be aware of some of the unique challenges that you may face.
One of the most common issues in the construction industry is the proper classification of employees and independent contractors. Misclassifying workers can lead to legal liability and penalties. It is important to understand the legal distinctions between the two and ensure compliance with the law.
The construction industry can also be a high-risk environment with potential hazards and injuries. Ensuring compliance with OSHA regulations and other workplace safety laws is critical to avoiding costly litigation and penalties.

An attorney can help you navigate the employment regulations and develop policies and procedures to keep you in compliance with the law. They can also provide guidance on handling disputes or claims if they arise.
