Attorney highlight

Gayla C. Crain, a member of the firm in the Labor and Employment and Litigation practices of Epstein Becker Green Wickliff & Hall, in the Dallas office, was quoted in Human Resource Executive on a rise of litigation challenging companies that maintain English-only policies.

In the article, "English-Only Policies Prompt Lawsuits," which appeared on July 3, 2007, Crain remarked that "if an employer decides to implement a policy ... it is critical that employees be allowed to speak their own language on breaks and in situations where the business necessities or safety concerns do not apply."
