Law & Local Business with Kim Hastings, Employment Lawyer
If you’ve listened to the Bonita Business Podcast a while, it’s clear that in many corners, Bonita Springs is booming.
But as companies grow, there’s always a risk that bad behaviors grow too, like discrimination and illegal employment practices.
In an age of Me Too and other public movements, I was curious about how discrimination issues were emerging in the local marketplace. So I turned to Kim Hastings.
Kim’s a local independent employment and business lawyer, and she counsels and litigates issues of discrimination faced by her small business clients. We dive into the difference between what’s illegal, and what’s just plain bad business behavior.
Spoiler alert—there’s a lot less that’s illegal than you may think.
If you want to help your business stay healthy and out of court—whether that be a real court, or the court of public opinion—you’ll definitely want to listen to this interview with Kim.
