Employers of all sizes and in every industry face increasing legal exposure as state and federal legislation becomes more protective of employees. Increasingly, some employment issues will end up in litigation — even for employers following best practices in managing their workforce. In those instances, it is more important than ever for your business to have experienced employment litigators on your side to put you in the best position to represent and protect your interests.
