All domestic and international businesses with one or more employees working in the United States are subject to a staggering number of State and Federal employment laws. The typical small employer with less than 100 employees may be subject to over 40 State and Federal employment related laws containing hundreds of regulations addressing nearly every aspect of the employment relationship. Material changes in many of these laws and regulations are enacted each year making it difficult for even large employers to keep current. To make employer compliance more difficult, State and Federal courts often change the way they interpret and enforce these employment laws, even if the applicable law hasn’t changed.
Navigating the complexities of these laws is a daunting task. For the foreign owned or small domestic employer, relying on a local attorney to provide guidance is simply not financially feasible. Hiring an entire dedicated professional HR team may also be too costly. Paradoxically, tracking the continuous stream of emerging State and Federal legislation and determining how these employment laws translate into employer practices is impossible without these resources.
With an average of 450 employment lawsuits filed in the US every day, the stakes are very high.
