Every day, employers both large and small call upon their legal or human resource professionals to help them make critical employment decisions. Who can we retain as independent contractors? Which employees need to be paid overtime? When do we have to grant family or medical leave? Making the wrong decision can be costly, but if the decision is not made quickly, you may lose the flexibility and agility you need to engage and retain the talent necessary to maintain your competitive edge.
