How to Get Sued by Your Employees
Garson says lawsuits range from racial and sexual discrimination to violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Overtime cases are a growth industry and, if you have been watching the news, interns are fighting back more than ever–suing former employers who had them doing the work of a paid employee without the pay.
Many employer-employee fiascos arise because businesses simply do not know what employment laws actually require of them. Garson warns that common sense, following your gut or doing what other companies are doing is not the way to go. Even if you do not break the law or the case is dropped, your business can suffer at the hands of a lawsuit.
Garson’s advice to companies? Learn the law.
