In addition to utilizing the attorneys at myHRcounsel and reading our tips and blogs, we always like to offer additional ideas for resources HR professional may find useful. After a long hiatus, the Department of Labor has started issuing opinion letters again. These letters, found here, can be a great tool for helping make decisions regarding tough wage and hour issues. For example, one of the recent opinion letters provided some clarification about when a paralegal may be considered an exempt employee, as typically paralegals would be a non-exempt employee entitled to minimum wage and overtime pay. If you are already a myHRcounsel client, we highly recommend you direct these questions to our attorneys as many of the opinion letters are narrowly interpreted based on the specific facts presented. However, if you have yet to sign up for our services, these opinion letters can be another arrow in your quiver to tackling tough HR and employment law issues.
