Employment Attorney Marc Engel Authors Chapter in American Bar Association Book

Employment attorney Marc Engel authored an entire chapter in Recruiting Lawyers: How to Hire the Best Talent, Second Edition, which was recently published by the Law Practice Division of the American Bar Association.

Chapter 7 of the book, titled “Step 4: Making Effective Hiring Decisions – Basic Employment Law Issues in Recruiting,” focuses on the role of a lawful hiring process in finding the best talent while avoiding a growing occurrence of employment claims. The good news for employers? Proper planning during the hiring process and an appreciation of potential legal traps can often prevent employment claims.

Marc also outlines key contributing factors to the recent surge in employment claims, including uncertain economic times, inconsistent treatment of employees by employers, and a bevy of new laws that substantially impact how an employer hires and fires employees.

To read more of Marc's insight into the hiring process, you can find the book on Amazon. You can also review many of the articles that Marc has written on employment and labor issues on Lerch Early's site.

Marc Engel is an employment attorney at Lerch, Early & Brewer in Bethesda, Maryland who brings nearly 30 years of wide-ranging civil litigation and counseling experience to his practice, and has represented clients in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies and various arbitration panels.
