Is your employee classification wrong?

As a hard-working employee in Georgia, you deserve to have all of the protection available to employees under state law. We here at Kaufman & Forman, P.C., understand that wrongful classification can get in the way of this, and will work to help you determine how to right misclassifications.

Your non-exempt or exempt status as an employee is incredibly important to you. It can affect or even determine many aspects of the way you are employed. For example, if you are registered as an exempt employee, it means that you won’t be able to have full access to overtime pay. If you are a non-exempt employee who has been misclassified like this, your pay is being cut into and you are working more hours for less money.

Along those lines, contract workers should also pay careful attention to their employment type. Are you considered a contractor even if you’re doing the same work as a regular employee for a long period of time? This should legally define you as an employee, but you can lose out on benefits or wages if you are still improperly classified as a contract worker. Sometimes this may be done intentionally, but it could also be a mistake on the part of your employer.

Make sure that your employer is being honest with your status and be sure to double check yourself, because unfortunately mistakes or underhanded tactics may happen. Don’t allow them to happen at the cost of your paycheck or benefits. To read more about employee classification, please visit our site.
