Employee Issues

Yes, employees are one of your most valuable assets, but they also can be a source of legal problems for an employer. Hiring, firing, and other issues all hold the potential for trouble if you aren’t aware of how to go about them in the best way. This week we look at some employee issues that can cause problems and what you can do to navigate the minefield of those issues.

Employee relations involves all aspects of an employee’s relationship with an employer. (Item #1)   Small companies aren't immune from workplace behavior problems. (Item #2)   If you have determined that there is a need to monitor employees’ computer usage, you need to know the legal risks. (Item #3)

What companies don’t know about a job applicant can hurt them. (Item #4)   You can fire employees legally and ethically. (Item #5)   Sooner or later, every employer will face the need to investigate one or more of its employees. (Item #6)

As always, we look forward to hearing about your concerns with regard to business continuity. If you have a topic you’d like to see covered, please email me at
