We work to address the work environment at PSNS, Bangor, and Keyport

We regularly and successfully address all types of employment problems at all the local federal facilities. Chalmers Johnson has extensive experience in Civil Rights and employment law.
Document reviews save you future headaches
The best investment in your career could well be a consultation to review employment documents. In other words, document reviews can improve many situations. Are you starting a new job? Consider a review of your contract and non-compete agreement. A review of a severance agreement may mean additional compensation. You can expect Chalmers to translate the legalese into plain English. They will also answer your questions and advise you on any “fine print” pitfalls. Your peace of mind is well worth the modest consultation fee. Here are some examples.
- Non-compete agreements
- Offers of employment
- Separation/Severance agreements
- Notices of potential disciplinary actions
- Non-union employer appeal processes
Preventative employment law services for employers
Similarly, employers consult us to ensure that their practices and policies are legal and fair. We assist employers to create effective employment policies. Mr. Johnson‘s reviews of current policies and practices can ensure that you are in compliance with quickly changing employment law. In addition, he investigates specific employee complaints and provides findings and recommendations. Many labor issues seem minor when first reported. However, they can end up costing you dearly if not handled quickly and professionally. And, Chalmers’ more than 20 years of experience can provide what you need.
Our employment law services can keep your workplace harmonious and productive.
We know you prefer to be known as a responsive and responsible employer. Add Chalmers Johnson to your team of professional services. Avoid expensive administrative complaints and lawsuits.
