The state and federal laws that govern employment relationships are becoming increasingly complex. These statutes place restrictions on the way in which employers can hire, treat, and terminate employees. If an employer gets it wrong, there can be severe financial penalties and potential reputational damage.
The framework of employment legislation offers employees protection from a range of prohibited acts, including discrimination, wrongful termination, and unlawful retaliation. Where employees' rights are breached, they can pursue legal remedies.
