Expert witnessing is extremely important in legal disputes. An expert witness is a witness who has knowledge beyond that of the ordinary lay person enabling him/her to give testimony regarding an issue that requires expertise to understand (uslegal.com). Determining if an expert is needed are what attorneys must decide based upon the case. In the realm of employment law, the areas of harassment, discrimination and discharge are typically where lawsuits arise for a company.
