Michael P. Maslanka
Mr. Maslanka helps companies manage their workforces instead of their workforces managing them. Employees are indeed a human resource. If you treat them as a valuable asset, like money in the bank, they are going to pay a return over and over. I help employers treat their employees like that asset through counseling and drafting smart and effective policies. But we are dealing with human beings and they can pose a danger. It is my job to step in and defend and protect the company before governmental agencies, in litigation and, if needed, trial. How did he formulate these ideas? He wrote a book---actually, five of them---on employment law.
