Six Statements That May Mean Your Business Will Keep an Employment Lawyer Busy

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinmail

 

I recently posted elsewhere six things I hear employers say that, while understandable in some cases, may actually cost the employer money in legal fees (and, with some of them, judgments or settlements). Here are the statements and more info on why they are problematic:

 

  1. “Noncompetes aren’t really enforceable. I’ll just hire him.”
  2. “I’ll just get a document off the internet.”
  3. “I’ll write it myself, then my lawyer can review it.”
  4. “Other employees are tired of having to cover for him being sick.”
  5. “We can’t afford background checks. Anyway, I’ve got good instincts about people.”
  6. “I don’t want somebody who files complaints working here.”
