Compliance Checklist: Federal Employment Laws You Need To Know At Every Stage Of Your Company’s Growth

Zenefits

Here’s a quick checklist of some major federal laws you’ll need to tackle at different employee thresholds in your growth. Employers must properly classify and pay employees a corresponding minimum wage, while following overtime and child labor standards. Employers may only hire those who can legally work in the United States and must maintain up-to-date I-9 forms for all employees. Employers must pay male and female employees the same wage for the same job.

That’s why it’s essential to know — before you find yourself in some kind of legal dispute — what documents you need to hold onto and what you can trash without putting your company at risk.

Effortless HR

WIRTW #449 (the “do-over” edition)

Ohio Employer's Law

Whether you are left or right, blue or red, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, it’s hard to argue that the first 28 days of POTUS 45 have been anything other than a dumpster fire. It culminated over the past 48 hours with Trump’s bizarre press conference , and withdrawal of his nominee for Labor Secretary, Andy Puzder. He nominated someone eminently qualified to run the Department of Labor. Alexander Acosta will become the next Secretary of Labor.

WIRTW #453 (the “Oxford comma” edition)

Ohio Employer's Law

Who knew that the l’il ol’ Oxford comma was so controversial? I would have never dreamed that yesterday’s post on the importance of its omission in a wage/statute would generate so much feedback, or that people feel so passionately about its use or non-use. To gauge exactly how you feel about the Oxford comma, I’ve designed a quick, one-question survey. Take a moment, and click “yes” or “no” on whether one should use the Oxford comma when writing.
