Employment Law Issues In The Time of Corona: Minimizing Employers’ Litigation Risk


I can’t express fully the support I have felt from Eric as my business/employment legal advisor. He has been able to respond to my legal needs in the most timely manner, and with the level of client service that has reassured me that he has my, and my company’s best interest at heart.

Working with Eric Sarver Esq. has been an absolute pleasure and relief to my business. I found Eric at a challenging time in my businesses. He is always responsive, detailed and prompt in his replies.. He is so easy to work with and is a real advocate for his clients. I met Eric at a lecture he presented on employment law and retained him shortly after to help me with contracts for my independent contractors. I needed the agreements quickly and not only did Eric have a quick turnaround, but he maintained the highest quality service by checking in to make sure I felt comfortable with the documents and to answer any questions. His approach is organized as well. I look forward to working with Eric again in the near future. I refer him to my colleagues all the time. I recommend Eric Sarver very highly; he provides all needed for a business to succeed and protect itself legally.

I met Eric at a series of networking events at a time when my two business partners and I were starting our own company. Our first meeting with Eric was amazingly impressive in the sense that Eric knows so much! Subsequently, he was able to break down information and categorize what was needed now and what will be needed later. I would describe Eric as the consummate professional; he is an active listener, great at following up and his legal knowledge and skills are of the highest level. I would highly recommend Eric's legal services.

Mr. Sarver reviewed new employment contracts for me prior to me signing commitment.  We were able to work easily together via phone and email.  He was responsive to my initial contact and offered a very fast turnaround time for the job.  His work in reviewing my contracts was outstanding; above and beyond my expectations.  He produced an extremely thorough report for each contract I submitted in which he summarized each section in easy to understand language.  Furthermore, he highlighted the good and bad details of each section with comparisons to other similar contracts as well as noting the contract’s alignment with current state laws.  I would highly recommend Mr. Sarver for this service and I will be using him again in the future for any of my employment contract needs.
