An Ounce of Prevention is Surely Worth a Pound of Cure

One of the main jobs of outside corporate counsel is to manage risk along with handling the business of managing the entire spectrum of employer-employee relationship issues. From employee hiring, through to employee exit, being entrusted to manage the clients' most sensitive and complex issues. Good corporate counsel will also provide exceptional support by combining real-world human resource guidance, all informed by relevant employment law provisions.

In the world of big business today, most corporate owners and CEO’s are just not as versed as they should be in the sensitive nature of employer-employee relationship and employment law matters. I always believe in the old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The only question is whether you, as a business owner or CEO, wants to pay now to protect your business later…or to pay later and hope that the problem, that could likely have been prevented, will be able to be ameliorated in the face of either costly litigation or the threat thereof.
