Employers may find themselves involved in litigation despite adequate training and adherence to current employment laws.
Given today’s complicated and ever-evolving web of statutes and regulations, claims related to discrimination, wrongful discharge, ERISA, OSHA, wage and hour disputes and many other causes of action can arise at almost any time and despite an employer’s best efforts at compliance.
