The 8 Key Employment Law Areas New York Employers Get Wrong

There are many employment regulations that are required both in New York state and by federal law. Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to significant financial penalties, attorney fees, and time working through the courts. Well-defined policies and practices, on the other hand, help to minimize costs, time, and potential future government audits.
