It’s ironic that our modern devotion to working harder, for longer hours, getting an employee background check before employment and continuously pushing to get more out of our employees can often result in the exact opposite. Employee burnout is a growing problem, particularly in the middle management and lower executive levels of a high performance…

If you’re wondering whether you can implement pre-hiring or general workplace drug testing, then you’ve probably realized it’s not all that simple. In fact, while there are some federal laws that do apply to workplace drug and alcohol testing, most of them are state specific, and they often change. That means that there’s no simple…

One of the more challenging aspects of being a landlord is getting asked to provide a reference. In our litigious society, you are probably concerned that you’ll handle it wrongly one way or another, and that one of the parties will seek legal remedies against you. That’s not an unheard-of situation, and it is a…

Every time you log into social media, surf the web, or buy something with a credit card, there’s a company out there somewhere that’s collecting that information, so that they can add it to their “big data” repository,…
