Managing employment issues can be nothing short of challenging. Avoid the costly hourly fees of a law firm and the frustration of general HR advice from a hotline – reach out to Vigilant today. Our labor and employment law attorneys have decades of experience under their belt and can help your business navigate both federal laws and state-specific (WA, OR, CA, and ID) regulations. Like having in-house counsel, our team will help you meet your business’ specific needs with practical and timely advice.
Unlike Vigilant’s services, HR hotlines cannot offer legal advice, as answers come from a general list of pre-approved topics. Reaching out to an attorney would be more effective than a hotline, but costs begin to quickly add up as you share your unique employment issue with the attorney. This high hourly cost means that clients are fearful of calling about smaller issues, which can quickly snowball into bigger problems and expensive litigations if left unaddressed.
Reduce your costs and risk for litigation while adding peace of mind: Vigilant’s flat-rate, unlimited consultation is a predictable monthly fee with no hidden charges. Other perks - such as risk assessments and employee handbook compliance reviews - make employment law compliance easier for your business. When you sign up, you also receive access to free resources like legal guides, model policies, and model forms. Our all-encompassing employment law advice is the right choice for your business’ short- and long-term success. Talk to us about how we can tackle employment law and HR issues together.
"How do I choose?" Searching for a lawyer requires time and diligence as you narrow down by area of expertise, size of the firm, and level of experience—each of which affects the overall cost.
A shot in the dark. When calling an HR hotline, you are paired with the next available HR generalist and have little to no indication about their level of expertise. Furthermore, each time you call, you'll have to explain your business anew.
We do the work for you. Our attorneys focus exclusively on labor and employment law issues. We'll pair you up with a dedicated attorney and other specialists that meet your specific business needs.
The Legal Advice
Hourly fees start to add up. Even if you found the right fit for your attorney needs in terms of expertise and specialized areas, expect to pay additional costs for the time it takes to discuss how to apply legal advice to your unique business or to research a specific topic or employment issue.
Little help in the long run. Hotlines cannot offer legal advice, only answers to general questions from a list of pre-approved topics. You'll receive little to no advice on employment laws specific to your state.
Like having in-house counsel. Your dedicated labor and employment law attorney can assist on issues specific to your company, whether they are everyday or complex. Your local attorney will know the ins and outs of not only federal but also state-specific (WA, OR, CA, ID) laws and regulations.
Additional costs. Hourly billing rates for experienced attorneys can range from $250 to $350. Not only will you be paying each time you contact your attorney, you'll also be expected to pay for overhead expenses—travel, meals, photocopies, postage, and support staff.
You get what you paid for. Whether you are using a hotline service for free or at an alluring low flat rate, you'll not get the benefits of a dedicated attorney or tailored legal advice.
No hidden fees. We charge a predictable, flat monthly fee. No hidden charges. No extra hourly fees. And always practical advice from labor and employment attorneys that you can apply to your unique business. You'll also benefit from our 2-hour call-back policy.
The high cost of doubt. Clients fearing high hourly costs become hesitant to call about smaller issues. These small issues can turn into bigger, costly issues and eventually snowball into costly litigation if left unaddressed.
Not specific to your needs. Frustrated at the lack of detailed and specific answers to your company's issues, hotline users often turn to an attorney and how must deal with the costs and difficulties of that decision.
Always the right choice. With unlimited consultation, you can call before issues get big, knowing you pay the same predictable monthly fee. You'll also benefit from further perks aimed at reducing your exposure to costly litigation, including risk assessments, employee handbook compliance reviews, and online resources including legal guides, model policies, and model forms.
