Effective Counsel On Employment Discrimination Claims
Many companies face employment discrimination lawsuits at some point in the life of the business. The law is designed to protect employees from having to endure discrimination in the workplace and provides remedies for those employees with legitimate claims. Unfortunately for business owners, many unfounded claims make their way into the court system, forcing employers to spend time and money defending against frivolous lawsuits.
At Slinde Nelson, we focus on defending employers charged with discrimination. We are aggressive from the beginning, mounting strong defenses and handling employment law issues so that you can concentrate on running your business.
