Employment Lawyer | Naperville, IL
The working relationship between an employer and its employees is complicated and multifaceted. Often, an employer will proclaim: “My employees are my most valuable resource.” There is a special bond of trust in an employment relationship on both sides. However, often one party crosses the line, breaks that bond of trust, and the employment relationship is forever altered. The employment landscape is guided by many complex laws and regulations which involve legal issues as diverse as discrimination, wage and hour issues, wrongful termination, exit strategies and severance arrangements, trade secrets, restrictive covenants and unemployment compensation just to name a few. The wrong step can have disastrous consequences.
