While lawyers and judges are the ultimate legal experts, of course, I believe that every citizen should take the time to learn a little about law for several reasons. First, it is important to know your rights, and knowing them can come in handy if anyone ever accuses you of a crime you didn't commit or threatens you legally in another other way. Second, learning about your local, state, and federal laws can help you act as a better citizen. When election time comes around, you can then truly understand ever change in law being proposed by a candidate and whether it benefits society or not. I plan to share posts about law topics explained in plain English on my new blog, so you can come back often to sharpen your legal knowledge!

Thus, employment law protects the employee's interests more than the employer's. If a corporation fails to consider employment law disputes carefully, it can end up paying significant amounts as compensation fees.

Many people hold long-term insurance policies, which are designed to pay a person a set percentage of their income in the event that they are unable to work for an extended period of time due to illness or a serious injury. While a large portion of long-term disability insurance claims are approved and processed by the insurance company, there are situations where the insurance company may deny the claim.
