Dept of Labor partners with lawyers for employee complaint lawsuits

It’s one thing after another with this regime. And the public is generally unaware of these things. The latest is a partnership between the Department of Labor and the American Bar Association. A hotline has been created so that unhappy employees with complaints about their bosses can report and retain an attorney for legal action.

Next to the DOJ, Labor has the most attorneys already on payroll than any other department in the federal government but they can’t seem to address all the complaints coming in from disgruntled employees. On a contingency basis, the ABA will provide attorneys to help out. That means that they only get paid at the end of a suit – after it’s gone to court or a settlement is reached.

Yes sir. More lawsuits against small businesses. More government/taxpayer funded employees to monitor the program. And if you’re a lawyer and not a member of the ABA, chances are you won’t be getting referrals.

There’s no information about the same kind of program for businesses who have complaints about their employees, however.

You really have to read this article at Fox Business about this whole thing. This program has far-reaching ramifications and those involved do not appear to be the most ethical people.

It’s one more example of this governments animosity towards business, especially small business, in America.
