When it comes to employment, many people think that only employees have rights that need to be protected. This can be misleading for employers faced with employment-related legal disputes. Contrary to popular belief, employers have legal rights too, and more and more employers are acting to defend those rights.
Employers are vulnerable and often find themselves on the opposite side of a variety of legal disputes, such as discrimination claims, harassment claims, wages or minimum standards claims, and wrongful or constructive dismissal claims to name a few. Many employers are often underrepresented, resulting in serious financial loss and fines for the organization.
