Is Your Business Facing a Lawsuit from an Employee?
Employers should try to prevent needing future employment claim defenses during the formation of the business by setting up written policies and grievance procedures. Additionally, key employees should have enforceable employment contract that protects both sides’ interests. However, most successful businesses will face an employment law dispute eventually. Some of the more common disputes employers might face include allegations of:
- Discrimination, harassment or sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination
- Salary, wage or overtime pay issues
- Misclassification of employees and independent contractors
- Retaliation for whistleblowing
- Non-compliance with federal and state medical leave laws (FMLA)
Have You Been Accused of Violating Your Employment Contract?
Employees and former employees can also face civil lawsuits brought by business employers. These lawsuits can contain allegations of:
- Breach of contract, including non-solicitation and non-competition agreements
- Trade secret theft or misappropriation
- Unfair competition
