    What to Expect in Employment Agency Hearings

    in Legal

    Hearings with agencies are usually performed with the parties, their attorneys, and the administrative law judge over the phone. Administrative law judges handle issues strictly pertaining to employment and are well versed in rules and cases relating to their particular area of law. Sometimes attorneys are involved and other times clients represent themselves pro se. Generally speaking, an employment hearing is like a mini trial where you will present your witnesses and cross examine the other side’s witnesses. You are able to submit documents which you may wish to enter as evidence in advance to both the judge and opposing party. It helps to have these clearly identified and readily accessible during the hearing, especially considering its telephonic nature. You are usually able to have both a closing and opening statement as well. Do not expect a decision at the conclusion of the telephone conversation. The decision will come in writing and it could take several months before any such decision is rendered.


    Tune in to this podcast with Heidi Kuffel to learn more about what to expect during an employment agency hearing.

    When Does an Employer Need and Employment Lawyer?

    in Legal

    Even the most conscientious employer occasionally needs help from a lawyer. Although you can handle some employment matters on your own, a great many issues are particularly tricky and require legal expertise. Employment law can change rapidly. Courts and government agencies issue new opinions interpreting these laws every day, sometimes completely overturning what everyone thought the law meant. When you also factor in that lawsuits brought by former employees can end in huge damages awards against an employer, it's easy to see why you should seek legal advice when you get in over your head. Join Bill and Rick to learn when and why you need a business employment lawyer on your side.
