University may file breach of contract suit in hospital dispute

Nearly every day, businesses across Georgia are faced with the question of whether to file a lawsuit against another party who does not seem to be fulfilling their part of a contract. By the time companies reach this point, they have usually attempted to rectify the situation without legal action. In some cases, those efforts are successful. When they are not, the best course of action may be to file a breach of contract suit.

Class action wage and hour complaint to be reviewed by top court

Georgia business readers may already be aware that in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to block a sex-discrimination case against Wal-Mart that would have involved an astonishing 1.6 million women. Now, the court will have the opportunity to clarify that ruling after agreeing to hear an appeal by Tyson Foods Inc. regarding a class action wage and hour complaint filed against the company's pork processing plant. Tyson is arguing that the lower courts improperly determined damages for the class.

Avoiding business litigation to collect debts

The products and services that Georgia businesses provide are not offered to customers and clients for free. Companies expect to be paid, and when invoices go unpaid, businesses can suffer. In some cases, it might be necessary to file business litigation in order to collect a debt, but often, an agreement can be reached without going to court.

11 workers owed nearly $100,000 in overtime pay and damages

One of the most important issues Georgia businesses have with employees is how to classify them. The U.S. Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets out specific guidelines as to which employees are to be considered exempt from overtime pay and which are to be paid it. An incorrect classification could result in a company not only having to give an employee or employees the overtime they were denied, but the company could face additional damages as well.
