2013 Edition
The Misclassification of employees handbook covers waged and hour regulations relating to both “non-employees” and “exempt employees” - one of the most fertile areas for employment law disputes and litigation. 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 Exemptionshandbook 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

2013 Edition
The Documentation Discipline & Discharge handbook shows employers how to properly document employee performance, provide feedback to keep employees on track, deal swiftly and fairly with problem employees, and conduct a discharge in a way that minimizes your risk of liability. This book is essential for navigating disciplining and terminating employees - possibly the most commonly litigated workplace disputes. 86 pages, $40

 
 
 
 
2012 Edition
