Excerpt

I am a firm believer that the best teacher in life is experience, whether you learn from your own experiences or the experiences of others. Although the most powerful teachers are our personal victories and defeats, the most efficient and pain-free lessons are acquired from the knowledge of others. the purpose of this book is to make you the beneficiary of my professional knowledge and experiences as a practicing labor and employment attorney.

I love my profession and particular practice area of labor and employment law because of the diversity and challenges that lie within the human dynamics and interactions. I frequently thank my clients for calling because of the comic relief they provide through their inquiries. Although when they call their intention is not to be funny, life is truly stranger than fiction. I know they are telling the truth based upon the particular, and often unique, facts they relate to me. To all those clients and colleagues who have shared their life with me, I again thank you and dedicate this book to you. Without you this book would not have been possible and my life not nearly as fulfilling and interesting.

Most important, I acknowledge and give praise to God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Power of the Holy Spirit who placed the desire and words in my heart to write this book. They are the source of my being each day, through whom everything is possible. I am nothing without my faith and belief that everything is created for our good and that we each have the power and obligation to do good. the power of prayer and doing what is right at every minute of every day is true contentment. "The Lord is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." Psalms 18:2.

In addition to God's love and guidance, I have had the distinct privilege to experience personally the power a positive relationship can have on one's life. Michael S. Morris, Esquire-my best friend, law school classmate, colleague, partner, soul mate, husband, and father of our daughter-is that power source. I cannot begin to fully express my gratitude for his unfailing love, friendship, warmth, laughter, intelligence, acceptance, courage, and support. My life is complete through our mutual respect and admiration for each other-the greatest gift of life.
