FM Employment Connection
Detroit FM Employment Connection
Employers today face significant challenges. Not only has the tough economic climate added stress to the workplace, shifts in employment law and the change to the Obama Administration have presented employers with new concerns. That’s why in early 2009, Foley & Mansfield introduced the FM Employment Connection. This award-winning program is designed specifically to assist human resource professionals and CEOs in managing ongoing employment and labor concerns in a cost-effective manner.

What is the FM Employment Connection?
The FM Employment Connection allows employers or their designated HR staff to call or email Foley & Mansfield with questions and concerns at anytime. Many issues will likely be resolved in a phone call; others may need quick research. On some occasions, where the issues are more complex, in-depth review or action may be required. In such cases, our attorneys will present options as to how such matters may be handled.

Why the FM Employment Connection? Why now?
Significant changes to employment law and regulation are approaching. Employment related legal and regulatory framework are sure to be less employer-friendly. Access to timely and knowledgeable advice is now crucial. At a time when employers are reluctant to incur legal fees, they need access to experienced legal counsel. The FM Employment Connection is designed to address that problem and to help clients and their HR staff stay ahead of new law changes as well as manage ongoing employment issues such as workplace discrimination, wage and hour, harassment, and employee benefits.

How to Connect?
While we cannot guarantee that our program will solve all your human resource and union issues, we can promise you access to experienced employment attorneys in a very cost-effective way. The program cost is $150, billed quarterly. To learn more or to participate in the FM Employment Connection, call 248.721.4200, or email

Meeting Employers Needs Through Award-Winning Innovation

In September 2009, Foley & Mansfield took top honors at the Michigan Lawyers Weekly 21st Century Innovators event for its Employment Connection program.

Out of 21 Michigan law firms participating in the competition, Foley & Mansfield stood out for its unique and innovative program.

“Indeed, the program offers unlimited access to an attorney who can answer employment and labor law questions via phone or email for a reasonable quarterly fee of $150. At $150 per quarter for unlimited labor law-related advice, ‘some would call this way of thinking the equivalence of a loss leader,’ said Michigan Lawyer Weekly publisher Alan Turner. ‘We, however, call it innovation.’”
