Protections for Federal Employees - Charlotte Croson co-authors the addition of a new chapter in Employment Litigation in Michigan

Representing Federal employees is a specialized practice that calls for expertise and experience. Luckily, Charlotte Croson of NachtLaw, has written the book on representing Federal employees. The Michigan Institute of Continuing Education has expanded its employment litigation bible, Employment Litigation in Michigan, with the addition of a new chapter, "Federal Employees and Federal Contractors and Subcontractors" co-authored by Charlotte Croson and Regan K.
