DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new ARAG® infographic shows an alarming number of Americans spend valuable time at work dealing with personal legal issues – resulting in lower job performance and productivity.



ARAG, a global provider of legal solutions, released an infographic titled Legal Town illustrating the top 10 legal needs Americans are dealing with – often while at work. Every day valued workers with a long track record of excellent performance begin exhibiting signs of increased absenteeism and lower productivity on the job. What is causing these issues among respected employees? Surprisingly, many times the problems at work aren't even work-related. Instead, personal legal life events – such as family or financial concerns – are creating stress, occupying time and attention, and making it more difficult to be fully focused at work.

ARAG's Legal Town infographic shows why Americans unexpectedly begin missing work and important deadlines, and tells you how to address these issues. Download the infographic and white paper at today to learn how to combat legal life events disrupting the workplace.
