If you are a business owner, you must be prepared for many types of scenarios that you may experience. You need to be able to anticipate threats made against you or your business. Disputes are a common occurrence that business owners face. Whether they are from employees within your company or from dissatisfied customers, any kind of dispute or conflict must be handled appropriately and swiftly. If you are having trouble resolving a dispute, you can turn to a trusted employment litigation lawyer for assistance specific to your situation. Here are some of the following ways that an employment litigation lawyer can help protect your business.

Wrongful Termination Accusations

An accusation of wrongful termination may be brought against you against a disgruntled employee. They may claim that you violated their legal rights when you terminated them from their role. An employment litigation lawyer like one from Eric Siegel Law can offer you guidance on how to protect your legal rights and your business’ reputation. These accusations must be handled carefully because any wrong move can damage your business. A lawyer can advise you on ways you can protect your business legally and financially. 

OSHA Complaints and Concerns  

A worker may accuse you of violating occupational standards, safety policies and governmental regulations. These complaints should always be taken seriously, because your business can get shut down if investigators find that there is a credible complaint. An experienced lawyer can tell you how to navigate the complaint so that you can avoid potential penalties and complications. 

Workplace Harassment 

Harassment of any kind in the workplace should never be tolerated. If there is a complaint concerning sexual harassment, misconduct or other type of harassment, it should never be taken lightly. A trusted lawyer can guide you on how to resolve matters of workplace harassment while taking measures to protect your business from damage against false accusations. 

Wage Disputes 

If an employee has a dispute about their wage and you are unable to come to an agreement, you may need to talk to a seasoned lawyer for legal advice. They will advise you on possible solutions to negotiate wage disputes, while determining strategies to protect your business and avoid unnecessary expenses. 

It is important to act quickly so that you can settle a dispute right away before your business is harmed. Request a consultation with a seasoned employment litigation lawyer for assistance with a dispute.
