Can Off-Duty Bad Conduct Warrant Termination?

The division between personal and work life often becomes blurred, especially if the person in question functions as a very public representative of the company that he or she works for. For most people, though, it is still possible to keep personal lives separate from work. However, this hasn't stopped employers from terminating workers who behave in unsavory ways off the clock. Whether this is appropriate, though, depends on the situation.

New Florida Law Ensures Contractor Status For Drivers Beginning July 1

The dividing line between an employee and a contractor has been a controversial one for people involved in the gig economy, especially rideshare drivers. As of July 1, 2017, drivers in Florida will find their status finally solved. Governor Rick Scott announced on April 24 that he will sign a bill into law that deems rideshare drivers to be contractors.

Requiring Employees to Provide Proof of Eligibility to Work in the U.S. May Result in a Liability

Employers in Florida have three days from the date of hire to verify a new employee's eligibility to legally work in the United States. This verification process falls under rules and guidelines that are provided by the United States immigration and citizenship laws as outlined in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The Actual Workplace Implications of the President's Immigration Executive Order

President Trump is known for being controversial and his latest executive order is one of most controversial acts as of yet. Signed on January 27, the executive order is titled "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Entry into the United States by Foreign Nations" and is focused on immigration issues. The order immediately suspended the entrance of individuals from seven countries: Iran, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, and Syria, including entry of new refugees. This order has some major implications for businesses as even individuals with pre-approved work Visas are affected by the order.

Pre-Employment Tests and Background Checks

Frequently, employers have questions concerning the legal process behind employment tests and background checks. When making decisions about employees, many employers want to thoroughly screen the applicants to be sure they are getting only the most qualified and committed future workers. These tests can include personality questionnaires, drug tests, cognitive assessments, English proficiency, screening their Social Media pages and more. The legal rule governing testing is that the tests must be non-discriminatory and the tests must be administered properly.

When is an employment contract a good idea?

It can prove to be a great relief when the hiring process draws to a close. That's because you, the employer, will no longer have to deal with corporate recruiters, piles of resumes, rounds of interviews and prolonged discussions about who would be the best fit in your organization.
