The law that describes the relationship between an employer and an employee and helps them in avoiding any conflicts of interest is termed as Employment Law. It is considered as the most effective way through which an employee is able to protect their rights. Employment Law includes both contentious and non-contentious employment matters relating to day-to-day business issues as well as mergers and takeovers. Includes employment litigation related to sex, race, age discrimination. In the USA, this also includes class action suits, and the avoidance of class action certification. It includes workforce redundancies and employment issues related to the merger of two companies. Lawyers also advise on the writing of policy handbooks, HR training and corporate governance for major corporates.

Solving Drafting/ Editing Problems:

  1. Placement matters. Put the modifying words as close as you can to the words you’re modifying. A common question arises about where to place the word “only” in a sentence. It should come as close as possible before the word or phrase that it modifies. Other words create similar situations. When using a modifying word, consider placing it as closely as possible to the word that you intend to modify.
  2. Emulate Warren Buffett. World-renowned investor Warren Buffet is often cited for his high-quality writing in investor letters. His average sentence length is 13.5 words and his letters per word average around 4.9. These kinds of results are difficult for lawyers to achieve, due mostly to the complex nature of the legal business. When facing complex ideas, consider breaking down a long sentence into several, making stronger points in shorter sentences.
