What Labor & Employment Attorneys Should Understand About Human Resources!
Depending on the local government, the Human Resources Department may entail a variety of areas that need sound and practical advice from a Labor & Employment Attorney and knowing how to handle when the advice is not followed. In local government, Human Resources has to perform a balancing act – balancing what the City Manager/Mayor wants for the organization and being fair to the employees. There are other parties such as the elected officials (politicians) and the unions which bring another wrinkle on how Human Resources manages any situation. Remember HR is seen as both the good and the bad…hires and fires….and much more.
