Hiring and Dismissal

Hiring and Dismissal

The two most important times in an employer-employee relationship are when the employee is hired and when he or she leaves their employment. 

And, what an employer does at those two stages can have a dramatic effect on their bottom line (not to mention employee morale). 

David Ertl has been a trusted advisor to employers for 20 years, be it corporations, non-profits, partnerships, or sole proprietor ships. 

Ertl Lawyers works closely with human resource professionals, managers, and owners to make sure that they are hiring the right way, and dismissing the right way.
