Two weeks ago, I began a turn-of-year top list that, rather than looking backwards, looks forward to concrete steps that employers can and, in many cases, should take in this upcoming year to minimize employee-related liability. The goal is also to identify low-cost items—potentially large undertakings such as independent contractor misclassification, Fair Labor Standards Act exemption audits, and job descriptions are no less critical, but not the focus of this list. In other words, for many employers, there is no excuse for not taking these six steps if you have not already done so.
