Making the Right Choices for Your Workforce
Employee classification is a complex issue that impacts a wide range of employers in ways they often do not anticipate.
Misconceptions about the proper definitions of exempt vs. non-exempt and the appropriate methods of classifying employees make a complicated matter worse. In addition, changing laws – some impacting specific cities, industries or business types – create further tension.
What employers need to know is this: Even if your employees think they are being properly classified and compensated, the government may not agree. Recent federal and state enforcement efforts have targeted companies of all sizes, and uncovered fundamental errors in the policies and methods many employers use.
