Labor And Employment

Preventing employment disputes is important to the success of any business. When employment litigation cannot be avoided, the disputes are often quite serious to the business owner in that this type of litigation often involves an allegation that state or federal statutes have been violated. From the employee's standpoint, employment disputes not only involve a loss of earnings, but also potential damage to the employee's reputation.
