Employers in Florida and throughout the country have always faced a multitude of potential legal problems, but disputes with employees can be especially distracting, time-consuming and costly. These legal issues, which can range from sexual harassment claims to discrimination claims, wage-and-hour claims to contract problems – and everything in between – can leave employers frustrated with the alleged facts and with mounting legal costs. Efficiency is usually the name of the game when it comes to addressing these disputes.
So, is an efficient resolution possible in your employment dispute? More often than not, the answer is probably “yes.” Believe it or not, in disputes between employers and employees, the employer oftentimes has some advantages. An employer typically has experience dealing with all kinds of employees and all kinds of alleged issues in the workplace. And, an employer may have more time and more resources to dedicate to finding a solution to the issue that is satisfactory – or at least that efficiently ends the legal case quickly and in a cost-effective manner.
Each case is unique
If you are an employer who is involved in a dispute with an employee, you look for legal help with the knowledge that your issue should be treated as the unique challenge that it is. Direct, out-of-court negotiations may be possible in some employment law cases, while mediation might be an option in others. Not every case ends up in lengthy, costly courtroom battles, although that is certainly a possibility in some cases.
