Human Resources Administration
Recent statistics indicate that employees win more than 70% of all employee lawsuits.
Employee-initiated lawsuits can be a very serious issue for today’s business owners. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just large companies that are being sued. Small to mid-sized companies are being impacted as well. Often, the typical employer finds himself paying fines or defending his company in court for violating OSHA, EEOC, DOL, State Unemployment Commission and Overtime Laws or Regulations. For those employers without the benefit of a professional Human Resources Consultant or an up to date Human Resource Information System (HRIS), the odds are heavily stacked against them.
