Tax Issues For Employment Lawyers, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

In light of recent federal tax “reform” legislation, employment lawyers are more attuned than ever to potential tax issues that arise in connection with the litigation and resolution of employment claims.
