Today, employers face a confusing maze of federal, state and local laws governing their relationships with prospective, current and former employees. There are regulations about everything from hiring and firing to unique issues posed by FMLA, NLRA, FLSA and WARN, and we know the letter of the law. But, just as importantly, we know, how to apply that law to everyday business needs to help avoid problems and disputes.
