Fair Measures, Inc. - Legal Training for Managers


While we title this section of our web site "Overtime/Contractors", there are many wage and hour issues of interest to employers, including which employees are properly exempt, overtime payments, maximum hours, vacation, sick pay, proper deductions from paychecks (including FMLA deductions), independent contractors, and the use of long-term temporary employees. We also cover some of these fundamental topics in our classes, so managers have working knowledge of the law and the ability to partner with in-house experts as issues arise. Here we offer in-depth information on exempt and non-exempt employees, overtime payments, maximum hours, vacation, sick pay, and proper deductions from paychecks (including FMLA deductions). We offer training courses that help managers and business owners deal with wage and hour issues legally.

Below you will find our answered Ask the Lawyer questions and eNews articles grouped under FAQ catagories.
