In an ever changing workforce, for many organizations it is not a matter of if your organization will be sued for an employment matter, it’s a matter of when. According to the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, approximately eighty-nine thousand charges were filed in the 2015 fiscal year. This number does not include matters not governed by the EEOC such as wage and hour, breach of contract or defamation claims to name a few.
Employment litigation is found in all industries and companies of all sizes. The types of allegations are broad in scope including, but not limited to, retaliation, breach of employment agreement, and discrimination on the basis of sex, race, religion, age, and disability.
