The Workplace Doctors - Important Disclaimer
No advice on The Workplace Doctor site should be considered legal advice or
psychological counseling. Although we may cite/mention certain laws in our
answers and give personal advice, this should be taken as a starting point for
your research and not legal advice or counseling. Laws vary significantly
by state; therefore, you should examine your own state's laws and seek an
attorney, official governmental organization, or labor organization in your area
for specific information or advice on employment law matters.
That said, if you have a problem, hopefully these pages will help you gain a better understanding of your situation. If you need legal help [beyond obtaining general information], you should seek advice from an experienced employment law lawyer in your area. If your workplace is causing you great psychological distress you should seek counseling.
We are experts in organizational, interpersonal, and mediated
communication. Although our advice covers a broad range of topics,
you should keep in mind that our advice follows from our discipline and our own
Even if you choose to follow our advice, employers and employees should not attempt to use our site as the sole source to remedy a problem. You should not read our pages, log off, and then proceed to make wild assumptions about the strength or weakness of your situation.
