By Press release submission | Aug 11, 2018

As a business owner, you are faced with an overabundance of decisions.

Hourigan Kluger & Quinn issued the following announcement on Aug. 7.

As a business owner, you are faced with an overabundance of decisions. Many of those decisions can raise potentially complex legal questions:

What impact does the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 have on non-disclosure agreements?

When planning layoffs, what considerations do you need to take in to account for employees over the age of 40?

How can severance agreement provisions be written to decrease the chance of them being invalidated?

Can one of your employees quit, but still collect unemployment compensation?

What constitutes an “equivalent position” for an employee returning from Family Medical Leave Act leave?

What are the consequences of misclassifying employees as independent contractors?

Can you refuse to promote an employee because of their sexual orientation?

What three elements are required in a non-solicitation agreement?

Do pre-offer drug tests to determine the use of illegal drugs violate the Americans with Disabilities Act?

Do I need an employee handbook?

Is the ADA applicable to my business and what do I need to do to comply with it?

Can I classify an employee as a salaried employee and avoid paying overtime?
