LawFact of the Day: Employment Law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Tuesday May 22, 2018.

Today we are talking about Employment Law.
It is very difficult for employers to prove “just cause” for termination, unless there is evidence of gross or wilful misconduct, like theft, fraud, or intentional dereliction of duties.
To establish cause” for termination because of performance concerns, employers must typically provide several written warnings as well as adequate opportunity for the employee to improve job performance.

Today we are talking about Family Law.

Marriage contracts, also known as pre-nuptial agreements, enable spouses to privately determine how issues relating to their property and support will be resolved if they separate in the future.
