Expert Witness

Employers and employees can find themselves on opposing sides in lawsuits. Litigants in employment cases may gain a strategic advantage through the use of an employment practices expert to provide an opinion on employment policies and practices that are relevant to their claims. The party bringing the case, the plaintiff, may benefit from an expert who can describe generally accepted human resources practices in, for example, hiring, training, supervision, the response to complaints, and discipline. Employers, by the same token, may aid their defense with an employment practices expert who can speak to the employer’s actions and whether they are consistent with accepted practices in the relevant area. Juries benefit from the expertise of a seasoned practitioner’s experience-based explanation of generally accepted practices in the workplace.
