Obligation to Employees

Employee Legal Rights

When an employee becomes a part of an internal investigation, that employee’s rights should be carefully maintained. The integrity of the investigation depends on the fair treatment of all those involved. At Gallion & Spielvogel LLP, our attorneys advise employees when they need to retain their own counsel.
