Gastonia Employment Law Lawyers
Over the past several decades, the workplace in the United States has become increasingly regulated. Dozens of federal and state statutes, such as the Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, set forth strict guidelines on employment procedures which impact both employers and employees. With the web of federal, state and local regulations becoming more complex, it is important that you consult an experienced employment lawyer regarding all workplace-related issues.
