Hundreds of employee questions arise in day-to- day business -- questions about COBRA, FMLA, EEOC, ADA and others. Sometimes, a simple solution can turn into a complicated catastrophe if it’s not handled properly and, as Seay often says, “What’s logical isn’t always what’s lawful.” This important Employment Hotline service can provide you with comfort and assurance in managing your employees by offering you quick, direct and accurate answers to your specific questions about employment issues. Here are some sample questions:

  • I am about to dismiss an employee. Do I have a proper reason, is it properly documented, and will it stand up if it is challenged by a government investigator?
  • One of my employees has accused another employee of sexual harassment. How do I resolve this situation?
  • I have heard that an employee has a communicable disease -- what should I do?
  • An employee wants to see his personnel file. Am I required to show it to him or her?
  • Some of my employees receive "incentive compensation" in addition to their hourly rate. Am I required to pay overtime on this incentive, in addition to regular pay?
  • If a salaried employee doesn't come to work, may I deduct from his or her salary?

  • One of my employees has been absent for a week. May I place the employee on Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) and count this past week toward the 12 weeks?
  • An employee was injured on the job and is one Worker's Compensation leave. Does FMLA play a role?

  • If an employee is dismissed or resigns, do I have to pay the employee immediately?
  • If an employee is dismissed, am I required to pay accrued vacation pay?
