multidistrict litigation lobbing wage and hour allegations against Wells

Year End Bonuses

In a struggling economy, some businesses prefer to offer lower wages, but higher bonuses at the end of the year based on the employee’s performance.  With the volatile job market, employees often wonder, “What if I am laid off before the end of the year?”  “Do I still get my bonus?”

Payment of Overtime Wages

Many employers, even large corporations, often violate federal and state laws requiring premium payment of overtime (usually time and a half after 40 hours in a workweek) to their workers. Sometimes these violations are not planned, but unfortunately, often they are intentional.

Are you or your employee(s) independent contractor(s) or an employee(s)?

Many companies improperly classify some of their workers as independent contractors who receive no benefits and no overtime pay for the work or services they provide. If you and/or your co-workers are in this category, you may be entitled to benefits and to back pay if you worked more than 40 hours in a workweek and were not paid overtime at time and a half your regular rate of pay.

Hard work is on the way!

A few weeks ago, I attended a lecture presented by Matthew Gardner who is an economist and a principal of Gardner Economics.  He also frequently lectures on the state of our national and local economies and the effect they have on real estate markets.

Employees Working a Little Harder for the Weekend

I think there is a lot of truth to the song  by Loverboy.

Sterling Financial: What happened?

Last week, an employee lawsuit filed against Spokane-based Sterling Financial was dropped. The plaintiff in the case said he never agreed to any involvement and did not give permission for his name to be used by attorneys.

Hiring Interns: Great resource but not free

Interns are a great resource for a company. They are generally thirsty for knowledge, willing to work hard to prove themselves, and oh yes, willing to work for cheap or even nothing. At least I was when I was in law school. Although the intern might be willing to work for nothing that doesn’t mean a “for profit” business doesn’t have to pay him or her.

What’s mine is mine! – Bringing your clients with you after you leave your employer.

I have a three year-old niece who, like most kids her age, thinks everything belongs to her no matter what it is. Don’t get me wrong, she is the sweetest girl out there, but she’s three, so naturally everything belongs to her. The last time we were visiting with her, she grabbed my blackberry, yelled “Mine”, and frowned when I took it from her a few minutes later.

“Bridesmaids” and Employment Law – Yes, I’ve managed to find a link between the two.

Employment law is all around us.  So much so, examples of it can even be found in the movie ”Bridesmaids ”.  Last week, I went to happy hour with my wife and some of her female co-workers/friends.  During the conversation, it came up that I was taking her to ”Bridesmaids” on her birthday.&nbs
