California employers face a number of challenges on any given day in the workplace. Maintaining amicable and appropriate relationships with employees is typically a priority to keep things running smoothly and productivity and profit levels high. When a worker files a complaint or claims an employer has been unjust, stressful situations may evolve that lead to employment litigation.
With regard to wage issues, there are state and federal laws that govern such matters. If a worker accuses an employer of not complying with those laws, it may cause the employer to have to defend his or her business interests. To many employers, time is money; therefore, it is typically best to seek positive solutions to such problems in as swift and economically feasible a fashion as possible.
