Hired as a contractor or an employee: What's the difference?

When an employer hires you, he or she will likely classify you as either an employee or an independent contractor. At first, you might not realize what the difference between those two classifications. In fact, you might not even know what classification your employer has technically assigned.

Class action involving the Telephone Consumer Protection Act

Attorneys Joe P. Leniski, Jr. and Gerard Stranch of Branstetter Stranch & Jennings PLLC have reached a settlement in a class action involving alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The defendant, an Arkansas bank, was accused of sending more than 380,000 unsolicited faxes to medical offices across the U.S. These faxes were advertising "Doctors Club" credit cards.

A Day Without Immigrants

Federal and state laws provide workers with a wide safety net of workplace rights. One such right is the right to engage in concerted activity. In other words, workers have the right to come together among co-workers and demand improved working conditions. This can be done in a variety of ways: providing the employer with a list of written demands, forming a union or a workers' committee, or even going on strike. The recent national strike of working immigrants, A Day Without Immigrants, was a powerful example of how concerted activity can be used to improve working conditions. Remember, striking is a protected right; your employer cannot fire or demote you for exercising your rights. Congratulations to all those who exercised their right to engage in concerted activity during A Day Without Immigrants! #ADayWithoutImmigrants
