  1. Administrative charges, arbitration, and wrongful discharge lawsuits are the frequent result of the well intended decisions of supervisors and managers involved in your company's disciplinary process
  2. Given the Civil Rights Act, the ADA, the Age Act, etc., employers need to prove that they have nondiscriminatory guidelines in hiring qualified employees.
  3. Handbooks are the ideal mechanism to prove that you have consistently enforced non-discriminatory policies to operate your business.
  4. Employees do not need volumes but need to be able to prove they have legitimate business-related reasons for their rules and regulations.
  5. I engage in "cost effective" (below the prices of big law firms) litigation in state and federal courts when necessary.
