WHAT THE BUSINESS OWNER/MANAGER MUST KNOW ABOUT THE EXPANDED CIVIL PROTECTION ORDERS LAWS – PART TWO

OKAY HATED LAWYER, why do I care about this Civil Protection stuff for my employee?

As an employer, you want to know what criminal allegations are being thrown at your employee.  Although the statute[s] may say “civil,” the involved statutes are also in the criminal code.

You will want to know whether you can make adverse decisions about your employee without running afoul of discrimination laws.

You will want to know when and for how long your employee will not be able to report to work.  IF the accuser is another employee, you will have an even bigger problem as they will NOT be able to be around each other (1,500 feet in many instances, to be exact).

You will need to realize that your employee may never be able to possess a firearm because of federal law; just from a state court order!
