A corporation’s employees are integral to its success. Managing employees and employee programs can, however, be a minefield of legal issues. Topics like the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), sexual harassment, racial and gender discrimination, wage and overtime laws, WARN Act layoff compliance, OSHA regulations, and various labor organization issues are all within the corporate counsel’s area of responsibility. From what federal and state laws apply to your business, to unions, to benefits, to work visas, understanding labor and employment issues is vital to corporate counsel regardless of the size of your company. The Human Resources section of FindLaw’s Corporate Counsel Center provides information on these employment topics and more.
