Where is your office located?
The office is located at 322 Martinez St. San Antonio, TX 78205
Can just anyone be an independent contractor (1099 employee)?
Unfortunately no, as there are very specific tests for who is and is not an independent contractor. Guidelines should be reviewed to ensure that an independent contractor is truly an independent contractor.
Can we just decide to make someone exempt from the FLSA and how do we do that?
Unfortunately, no. The FLSA has very specific guidelines and tests to determine who is exempt and who is not exempt. Additionally, the Department of Labor has recently revised the guidelines and increased the salary cutoffs so please review these before they go into effect on January 1st.
Do we really need to worry about this paid sick leave ordinance?
While the final court ruling is still a way off, the City's implementation date is December 1st with penalties beginning April 1. You and your team should be discussing how the ordinance will affect your company, what your current policies say and whether your company is already more generous than the ordinance requires. At this juncture, I would begin making plans even if you aren't quite executing them yet.
