  • Evaluations can serve as an effective tool to boost employee performance and productivity levels if they're properly prepared and implemented. Because most managers dread the process, they fall prey to common mistakes that not only prevent the performance evaluation from being an effective tool but also can be costly for employers. Unfortunately, with wrongfultermination and discrimination cases on the rise, this oftoverlooked tool has taken on an important role outside of just improving performance. It also can be key to defending against those claims. , Performance evaluations: critical tool or potential liability?
  • As most business owners and managers know, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires all covered employers to pay overtime compensation to any nonexempt employee who works more than 40 hours in a week Under the FLSA, however, "employer" includes "any person acting directly or indirectly in the interest of an employer in relation to an employee." The definition is a bit circular (using the word employer to define employer), but note that the FLSAs interpretation is expansive in order to achieve its broad remedial purposes. So when does an individual qualify as an "employer" under the FLSA? That definition encompasses more individuals than you may think. A recent Arizona case illustrates the personal liability risk for owners and managers on FLSA claims., Owners, managers face personal risk on FLSA claims
  • In the past few months, I've spent every week, if not every day, updating or creating employee handbooks for businesses of all  sizes. During that time, I've often found myself answering questions about bereavement leave. Most often, employers ask whether Arizona law requires them to offer paid bereavement leave. It doesn't, but when I answer their questions, I find myself articulating the benefits of offering bereavement leave. Those benefits become apparent when you're dealing with a grieving employee and able to handle the situation with empathy and compassion. On the other hand, not responding properly to an employee's grief can be detrimental to your business.  (I publish an article in the Arizona Employment Law letter each month.  I also publish a column 6 times a year.  These are just a sampling of recent publications.), Why you should establish a bereavement leave policy
