Successful defense against an employee claim can be the difference between a business that thrives and grows, or one that may be forced into bankruptcy. There is no doubt that employees have the right to fair treatment and legislation such as FLSA, ERISA and other Employee Protection Legislation (EPL) have been enacted to ensure that employees are protected and fairly treated. However, this protection does not preclude employers from their rights and access to effective legal representation.
