Employee Classification & Wage and Hour Exemptions 
2013 Edition
 
Misclassification of employees – both as “non-employees” and as “exempt” – has created some of the most fertile ground for employment law disputes and litigation in recent years. Oregon law often requires state agencies to assess back taxes, penalties, and interest against employers that misclassify workers.  Likewise, employees misclassified as exempt may also seek back wages, civil penalty wages and interest for unpaid minimum wage and overtime through the Bureau of Labor and Industries or the courts. Use the Employee Classification & Wage and Hour Exemptions handbook to get a solid grasp on the legal criteria used to determine which of your workers are employees – and which are not.  It will also help you correctly identify which of your employees qualify for exemptions from minimum wage and overtime requirements. 
 
Featuring commonly asked questions, legislative updates and a complete index, this new handbook provides a comprehensive “go-to” guide for the worker classifications and the wage and hour exemptions available to Oregon employers.  Spiral bound / opens flat for easy reference. 80 pages, $30
