Dale & Eke is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously.  So, for the purpose of maintaining social distancing under CDC guidelines and to promote the health and safety of our clients, visitors and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, our physical office will be closed until further notice.

For the time being we are limiting all in-office meetings to those clients and potential clients who are not feeling ill or who have not shown signs of illness.  However, we are recommending that, unless you make other arrangements with your attorney, all client and potential client meetings occur via telephone or video conferencing.  If you have any paperwork for us that you need to drop off, please use the mail slot outside of the front door to our office.

We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

You may also email the firm through its website at  www.daleeke.com.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and adjust procedures as necessary.  Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our attorneys and staff, is our highest priority.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times.

Employee loyalty may reduce legal problems

For many business owners in Indiana, their employees play an invaluable role in seeing that they are able to successfully reach their goals and effectively serve their customers. Employees are the detailed parts of the machine that are overall responsible for keeping the entire endeavor moving forward. Companies that are committed to helping their employees recognize their value and feel their value, may be more effective at reducing costly legal problems. 

When businesses are facing a lawsuit from one of their employees there could be a variety of reasons why including discrimination, unfair labor practices or even fraud. In some of these circumstances, the entire incident could have stemmed from a growing misunderstanding that may have been prevented if it was appropriately dealt with from the onset. Effective communication is imperative in any business’s effort to help their employees feel heard and appreciated. 

According to Inc.com, one way that business leaders can instill employee loyalty is by investing resources into employee development. A program that has been created with employee needs in mind and fine-tuned to provide support in their endeavors can be equally as beneficial to the company in helping it to maintain a team that is fully committed to organizational goals and its future. 

Forbes suggests that companies be transparent in helping their employees recognize how their contributions play a role in the long-term success and achievement of their organization. When employees see their purpose and are aware that its absence could hurt the company’s success, they may be much more motivated to do their job with superior effort and unparalleled loyalty.
