Because labor and employment issues are a significant source of litigation and a top concern for management and in-house counsel, we feel it is crucial to equip our clients with the most up-to-date and relevant information on employment and labor law issues. To assist in this endeavor, we publish our monthly Employment Law Commentary ("ELC"), which covers key judicial and legislative developments, their implications for employers, and strategies to ensure compliance and avoid lawsuits.
