Employers are meant to follow rules and regulations in regard to how their employments are treated. These state and federal guidelines are meant to protect the employee throughout their hiring process and when actively working.

Such legal matters can be confusing and complex. Having the right legal support can make a world of difference. At Raynes & Lawn, we are committed to guiding and advocating for our clients’ rights.
