Honest Texas Labor Lawyer Helps You Keep the Money You Earn

Experienced employment lawyer serving the workers of Houston for more than 28 years

The job market is extremely competitive. As a business owner, you want to attract talent that helps to grow your business in a positive way.

For more than 28 years, David C. Holmes has been helping small business owners create and implement executive compensation plans that keep you competitive with larger, nationally known firms and companies. He’s a skilled labor lawyer who gives clients the edge they need to attract the employees who can keep their company running successfully.

How does executive compensation work?

There are two main types of employees: non-exempt (who are entitled to overtime pay) and exempt (who are not). Compensating a non-exempt employee usually means paying an hourly wage and offering medical benefits. For exempt employees, compensation may include:

  • Bonuses
  • Stock options
  • Enhanced benefits
  • Company car
  • Club memberships
  • Deferred earnings

The rules and regulations surrounding these forms of compensation are dense and complicated. Houston employment attorney David C. Holmes knows the laws regarding taxes and financial reporting, and helps small business owners create plans that are designed to attract new talent.

How our firm can help

Attorney David C. Holmes can help your business by:

  • Getting creative. Most executive compensation plans focus on money. But not all employees are motivated solely by large payouts. We create packages with perks that are personal to the employees themselves.
  • Reviewing existing plans. Labor laws change fairly often. We can review your current plan and recommend changes to ensure that your company is staying within the confines of the law.
  • Handling the IRS. Creating or revising an executive compensation plan will inevitably lead you to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We help you stay within the tax codes to avoid audits in the future.

The complexities of executive compensation can be a bit overwhelming, but we’re here to help. At the Law Offices of David C. Holmes, we work with you to ensure that your employees and your company are well taken care of into the future.
