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.

Resolving disputes with staff members

Business owners face countless challenges every single day, such as issues involving customers, seasonal business fluctuation, disagreements with business partners and all sorts of financial concerns related to running a business. For some business owners, disputes involving staff members arise, and these can be especially tough to handle. Whether your business is accused of wrongdoing due to wage and hour violations (denied overtime, etc.), or you have been accused of discriminating against a job applicant or an employee, these disputes can be incredibly tough to deal with. Furthermore, the consequences can disrupt your business in many ways.

When disputes arise with current employees, the outcome of the situation could affect their employment and it may prompt other workers to quit or take action as well. As a result, it is crucial to handle these disputes as smoothly as possible. Sometimes, the right approach can prevent a dispute from making its way to the courtroom. In other instances, an employee may be determined to move ahead with a lawsuit against their employer.

Aside from current workers, former employees may also decide to file a complaint or take legal action. Sometimes, ex-employees feel as if they have nothing to lose and they are not afraid to bring their case to court, especially if they were upset with their position being terminated or want to get revenge for whatever reason. Legal matters involving staff members should be handled carefully and business owners should explore all of the legal options they have when a dispute surfaces.
