Employment and Labor


The goal of employment law is to prevent conflicts from happening for the benefit of both the employee and the employer. The key to doing so is having effective and comprehensive policies and regulations in place for both management and labor. Employee handbooks and personnel manuals are imperative to resolving disputes and preventing litigation.
