The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)

The DOL governs every federal employment legislation that impacts both employers and employees in all areas of employment labor. Statutes and regulations are ever changing so it is critical that employers stay abreast of these changes and make every effort to remain in compliance and be thoroughly prepared to address employment disputes as they arise.

Prevention is Key

One of the keys to operating a business successfully is to effectively minimize and eliminate conflict in the workplace. When employers understand their obligations, rights, and limitations under local, state, and federal law, they can proactively prevent employment complaints and lawsuits and de-escalate active complaints.
