Overview

The complexities of the employee-employer relationship include an ever-changing array of state and federal legislation and court decisions affecting the workplace. Employers are constantly faced with new — and often complex — statutory regulations, increasing their potential exposure from the challenges of employment decisions, and increased oversight by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor and other government agencies.
