    • How to define “essential functions” for ADA and FMLA purposes.
    • Exempt or not? The right language to lock in an employee’s exempt FLSA classification. Hint: You don’t need to state which exemption you’re claiming, but you do need to know as you list duties for the job.
    • Descriptive but functional language. Why job descriptions should use language that’s function-based and avoids coded words like “aggressive” and “fearless,” which can be seen as racist or sexist.
    • Should they include disclaimers? Yes, and we’ll provide a sample you can include.
    • Why the annual review should always include a reassessment of the job description. This is your chance to fix errors, evaluate changes and rest easy knowing your employee can’t trap you with surprise overtime, misclassification or other wage-and-hour complaints.
    • Why you need employee input, review and buy-in. Nothing protects like an employee’s acknowledgement that their job description is accurate and complete.

    • Discover the best way to pay. While electronic pay options (like direct deposit) are optimal for employees who aren’t in the office, state laws can throw up a huge hurdle.
    • Find out where you are liable for unemployment coverage. State unemployment taxes can be tricky. Learn the four tests to see if you must pay up.
    • Learn the advantages and pitfalls of reciprocity and "courtesy withholding.” In some states you can withhold income taxes for employees' states of residence. But it could also open your company to an array of state taxes.
