Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

“A slim settlement is worth more than a fat lawsuit.”

– Yiddish Proverb

Let this lawyer of 36 years tell you the truth: this proverb is quite wise. Or, as one lawyer once defined a lawsuit for me: “A lawsuit is a $200 court filing fee and a dream.” In the employment context, these days, it is so, so often a bad dream, too, as well as a potential end to your career. This blogsite, and my law practice, are both dedicated to the prevention of workplace disputes, and their resolution, without litigation, or its even-worse cousin, arbitration. Instead, we espouse and encourage wise navigation and negotiation. Just like you should do what you can to avoid needing an operating room, you should do all you can to resist entering a court room. They are equally risky and equally dangerous places to be.
