What Do I Need to Know About Employee Law Issues?

Any business that employs people to work for them needs to have a solid understanding of employee law issues.  Some important things to navigate are correctly determining whether an individual is an employee or a contractor, whether employees are classed as “exempt” or “non-exempt” and eligible for overtime pay, and whether to employ non-disclosure and/or non-compete agreements. Other issues include discrimination and Harassment at the work place, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues,  changes in health care laws, uses of social media in the workplace, dealing with labor unions, minimum wage, overtime, and misclassification,  Unsafe Workplace Complaints and Conditions, Workers’ Rights, Workers’ Compensation issues, Wrongful Discharge/Termination of Employment,  and others.
