Avoiding Costly Employee Disputes
Businesses rely in large part on the hard work of the employees who perform the day-to-day work. It’s important to know the laws and make the right choices to protect your business while respecting the rights of your workers. A business can have serious problems if faced with a damaging lawsuit over labor or employment law issues.

We provide personalized legal counsel to help you advance your business goals while protecting you from lawsuits and ensuring that your employees’ rights are properly observed.
Understanding Employee Issues
Business owners must be aware of potential problems in their workforce on many issues, including discrimination and harassment. Workers have the right to a workplace free of both, and ignoring or normalizing certain behaviors can have major consequences for any business.
A business can face legal trouble if an employee is regularly subjected to any of the following:
- Discrimination based on sex, gender, religion, race, ethnicity, age or disability
- Inappropriate physical, written or verbal sexual advances
- Vulgar jokes or remarks
- A hostile work environment
The best time to address these issues is before they occur. Our experienced New Jersey legal team can advise you of the best course of action to prevent lawsuits stemming from discrimination and harassment. If your business has already been sued, we can assess your situation and provide you with the best options for protecting your business.
