Owning a business is a challenge all its own, without having to deal with lawsuits against you as well. Facing a lawsuit can be overwhelming, scary, and threatening to your livelihood. After putting in countless hours away from your family and tremendous effort to make your business successful for your own family and for your employees, a lawsuit is enough to derail anyone and should be taken very seriously. We do!
Our attorneys at Denton Peterson Dunn are proficient with employment law and can easily help you navigate the process of preparing evidence, gathering pertinent information, and preparing for court, all while maintaining a cordial relationship with the employee. The worst move you could make is to retaliate and fire the employee who filed against you, even if they are in the wrong. Employment law prohibits any retaliatory action that affects employment such as hiring, firing, compensation, promotions, or benefits, and doing so would bring more harm than good. Additionally, you are legally required to keep any documents, emails, texts, or other information relating to the claim brought against you.
