Employment issues are an inherent risk associated with operating a business. Allegations of retaliatory firing, sexual harassment, breach of contract, and failure to pay wages, including overtime, are serious issues for both employers and employees. If an employee demonstrates that he or she suffered a financial loss because their rights were violated, an employer can be held liable for damages. Whether you are an employer or an employee, you should have experienced legal representation who can provide effective and focused legal representation to assist you in resolving employment-related disputes.
