Thomasville- Thomasville area businesses get a lesson on how to deal with employee complaints better. The Department of Labor, Southwest Georgia Technical College, and the Thomas County Employers Committee spoke with 15 areas businesses on the importance of labor and employment laws.

"First of all, treat their employees consistently. Make sure they document performance problems, that they're honest on performance evaluations, and that they have clear policies in place that tell the employees what they need to do," said Jonathan Martin, Attorney.

In 1991, Congress amended the Civil Rights Act to allow for a jury trial in federal employment discrimination cases. That ruling caused the number of employment discrimination cases to increase.
