Independent Contractors

The “old” U.S. Department of Labor rule was out, now it’s back in, or is it? Who is and isn’t an independent contractor? What about the IRS rule and common law rule? How many different rules do I need to worry about?

Joint Employers

The “new” National Labor Relations Board rule is back, or is it? What is the old rule and new rule and who are joint employers and why do I need to know this?

Writs of Garnishment

What is a writ and why is it garnished? Let’s discuss Florida’s law on how these writs may affect employees' wages and other payments for services.

We will discuss issues that primarily affect working women who are at the forefront of a changing workplace landscape.

Going Into Overtime Folks! 

I paid those former employees a salary so why are we being sued for overtime? And don’t those employees have to provide proof that they worked overtime? We will discuss the most common wage and hour “need to knows."
