Programs include reasonable-care certification and instructional handouts for participants—both recognized by US courts. Additional relevant topics include: Diversity/Inclusion Training, Social Media & Activities Outside the Workplace, Workplace Romance as Future Sexual Harassment, and many more.

Contract Review

Contract Review

Contracts are seldom scrutinized until after there is a problem. The Starr Group can help you avoid unnecessary expenses and headaches by ensuring your written contract is in place at the start of an agreement. Our team reviews contracts to avoid poorly worded contracts, signing “one-sided” agreements, or worse—not even having a contract in place.
