Employment Law

Employment law is both complex and dynamic. Its complexity lies in overlapping local, state, and federal components which impose a number of seemingly contradictory requirements, and the regime's frequent augmentation, amendment and reinterpretation keeps it from being static. As such, employment law is not easily summarized. But there are some universal steps a nonprofit organization can and should take.
