HR Fact Friday: How to Get Sued if You are an Employer

Filed under: General HR Buzz6:00 am

The California Chamber of Commerce has published an interesting list of the top ten ways an employer can get itself sued. Here is the list:

  1. Classify all employees as exempt whether they are or not;
  2. Be nice to employees and let them take their lunch whenever they want to;
  3. Make everyone an independent contractor because having employees is too much trouble;
  4. Don’t train managers on harassment and discrimination;
  5. Let employees decide their own work hours;
  6. Terminate any employee who takes a leave of absence because leaves are too inconvenient and hard to administer;
  7. Don’t give terminated employees their final pay unless they come to get it;
  8. Lend employees money and deduct it from their pay (note, this is a unique California issue);
  9. Use non-compete agreements (again, a unique California issue); and
  10. Implement a “use it or lose it” vacation policy (unique to California).
