Benefits of alternative dispute resolution methods

When your business faces a dispute, the thought of the time, cost and resources to be spent on finding a resolution can be daunting. Whether due to a breach of contract, disagreement among partners or shareholders or more, a commercial dispute may benefit from a resolution decided on outside of traditional litigation.

When a business relationship is formed, many ups and downs could occur. Although a contract between the parties involved memorializes this relationship and the agreements they have, this does not mean no issues will be present. This is especially true if one party to the agreement is not holding up their part of the agreement.

Understanding gender discrimination in the workplace

As any woman in Illinois and elsewhere can attest, strides for women have been made over the past several decades. And while it has been made known that women have the ability to perform equally to their male counterparts, women are still treated as if this is not the case. Gender discrimination still exists in society, and when it occurs, it can have a damaging effect.

Taking action following discrimination in the workplace

A workplace can be filled with many dynamics. Each individual employee brings his or her own expertise and personality, while the demands of the workplace can put strains on the interactions and relationships between and among employees.

Some employees are faced with mistreatment and harassment, calling into question whether or not they have any action they can take to resolve the matter.

What happens when an immigrant overstays their visa in the U.S.?

There are a variety of reasons to apply for a visa to enter the United States. Immigrants entering the U.S. at Illinois or any other state should understand that a visa holds certain restrictions or requirements. In other words, a visa, no matter what type, does not afford a foreign national the right to remain in America for as long as they want. Every visa has an end date, and when that end date comes and goes and an immigrant remains in the U.S., this could result in serious penalties.
