Employment laws are consistently changing — new legislation and new court interpretations are a given. With this ever-changing legal environment, employers often find they are unaware of basic legal requirements, such as:
- When must an employee who has resigned or was terminated be paid?
- What is a work week?
- How many breaks are employees entitled to during a work shift?
- Must employees be given time to vote?
- How many hours does an employee have to work to be considered full time?
- Are employees entitled to paid vacation?
- Must an employer have good cause to terminate an employee?
These are only a few questions that employers face. Not knowing the correct answer can end up being costly. Therefore, it is imperative that an employer has an employee handbook and other workplace policies in place that address these issues. These will ensure that the company and its employees understand what is expected and what procedure should be followed based on the situation.
