In recent years, employment law has become increasingly complex and expansive with such developments as the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008, the revised Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Affordable Care Act. In addition, employee claims for matters such as discrimination are skyrocketing, thereby resulting in huge defense costs for employers.
