Managing day-to-day employee related issues can be overwhelming and complex; it can also expose employers to legal liability. With the constant change in state and federal employment laws, regulations, trends, and conflicting court decisions, employers and human resource professionals are in greater need of legal counsel to manage many day-to-day employee related issues to ensure they don’t run afoul of employment laws.
Partner Deena B. Rosendahl heads up KSL’s counseling and training division with one goal in mind: provide business owners with practical solutions which align the employer’s business goal with legal compliance.
