Common Labor and Employment Concerns

Today’s employers and employees face a variety of anxiety-inducing legal concerns. Employees may struggle with sexual harassment on the job or retaliation if they attempt to report civil rights violations. Others are wrongfully terminated due to their age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or as a result of pregnancy.

On the employer’s end, risks include being accused of wrongful termination (despite terminating employees for perfectly valid reasons) or failing to comply with overtime pay regulations or the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Such accusations can prove devastating, particularly for small business owners.
