4 mistakes employers should avoid when it comes to overtime

There are many demanding occupations that require workers to put in more than 40 hours of time in a given week. When this happens, it is crucial for employers to know if they should be paying overtime to their workers, and how much to pay them. 

FMLA and your attendance policy

When an employee is not at work, there can be project delays and other workers often need to step in to cover for that person. Intermittent absences typically cause little or no disruption in the workplace. However, when an employee is excessively absent, actions like termination may be appropriate.

Managers may be over-correcting after #MeToo

The #MeToo movement of 2017 broke considerable ground for sexual harassment awareness. Putting a human face to the victims and their stories proved to be extremely effective. Many individuals were shocked to see just how pervasive sexual harassment and similar crimes were nationally and among people that they know.

Study finds workplace harassment may have lasting health effects

In recent months and years, countless stories have emerged that paint a troubling picture of the extent to which people -- often women -- experience harassment in the workplace. In response, many employers have been revising their sexual harassment policies and ramping up their efforts to respond appropriately to complaints.

Critical documents to retain when an employee takes FMLA leave

Employees who work for covered employers are often eligible to take job-protected leave for certain medical or family reasons under the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA. As an employer, it is your responsibility to comply with these laws and destermine eligibility. 

Making it easier to enforce your non-compete agreements

Hiring new employees is no small decision for employers. Not only do they have to find the right person and make an attractive offer, they must also devote considerable resources to training that person and providing him or her with the tools they need to do the job.
