Employment Law & Human Resources

Every employer has a multitude of legal responsibilities towards his or her employees, including hiring practices, wage standards, work hours, working conditions, the company’s ability to terminate an employee, and the rights of an employee before and after termination, etc. Certain responsibilities are mandated by Federal or State laws and regulations. In today’s litigious environment, it is critical for business survival to understand all aspects of employer’s liability so that you may plan ahead and protect your business legally from unwanted exposure to liability. By acting preventively and prudently, not only will you save money in the long run, you will also maximize your business’ profitability and competitiveness.
