When workplace issues transform into class action threats
Labor and employment issues can be a challenge for any organization–and sometimes, they can erupt into an acute crisis. For companies doing business nationwide, an otherwise ordinary employee lawsuit may create a class action threat. Age, gender, and race are always sensitive and potentially contentious issues that can damage corporate reputations long after lawsuits are resolved. Collective bargaining and labor management relations are always a challenge before, during and after negotiations.
Winning in court and the court of public opinion.
