Employee and Employer Rights and Obligations


What do you do when things go badly at work? Employers worry about how to avoid employee theft and performance issues, wage and hour laws, union activity, and lawsuits alleging discrimination or wrongful discharge. Employees worry about losing their job and about how to handle inappropriate conduct by a boss or co-worker or how to earn a living while complying with non-competes and other post-employment covenants. And employers and employees both worry about losing their earnings while spending thousands on lawyers.

You need to stay out of court if possible. The lawyers at Axilon know how to do that. But when you end up in court, they know how to protect you there, too.
