Business litigation centers are chef and his namesake restaurant

In business in Louisiana and across the United States, there can be something of a domino effect. One thing will lead to another and result in business disputes, business litigation, arguments over naming rights and more. Frequently this will emanate from a totally separate issue, but that does not make it any less important. For those who are in the middle of a business dispute, it is imperative to be protected with legal advice from an attorney who is well-versed in all aspects of business law.

Employers need to protect from lawsuits with an experienced firm

Doing business in today's world is difficult enough for Louisiana businesses without having to think about strategies to protect from lawsuits. It is, however, the fundamental reality as to its necessity. Of course, employees must be protected by the adherence on the part of employers to employment regulations and grant them their civil rights. But that does not mean that employers should be accused of violations they did not commit, nor should they be subjected to allegations of sexual harassment and other behaviors without the chance to defend themselves. Having a legal firm experienced in defending businesses is important.

What is light duty under the ADA and are employers protected?

Louisiana employers and employees might be aware of the various laws that are in place to protect those who are disabled and are able to work. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a necessary piece of legislation that will regulate how employers will treat workers who are disabled. However, some employers could find themselves being confronted with allegations that they have violated employment law when they believe they have complied and are acting within their own best interests by refusing to do certain things based on reasonable accommodation.

Understanding specific performance after breach of contract

Breach of contract is a serious issue in Louisiana business and companies that are dealing with it should be aware of the various remedies they have at their disposal to settle the matter. In some instances, a financial payout is enough to end it and have the parties move on. However, that is not always the case making a lawsuit untenable, costly and time-consuming for an unsatisfactory resolution. This is where specific performance comes in.
