Choosing entity type is essential in Georgia business formation

Deciding to start a business can be exciting, but it requires several decisions to be made before anything else can be done. One of the essential decisions in Georgia business formation is what type of entity the business will be. The decision will affect how the business is viewed, both legally and by federal and state taxing authorities.

Department of Labor says contractors violated wage and hour law

Many Georgia construction contractors work on projects that include some sort of federal money. When this happens, it is essential for general contractors to ensure that workers are paid for the work they do -- both their employees and the employees of any subcontractors used on the job. Otherwise, the general contractor could find itself in violation of at least one wage and hour law, which could cost the company a significant amount of money.

Patients and physicians around the country, including in Georgia, rely on pharmaceutical companies to market their products for the uses for which they are approved by the Food and Drug Administration and nothing else.

This type of marketing is said to perpetrate a fraud on both physicians prescribing the medication and the patients taking it.

According to the 11th Circuit, arbitration is allowable in a wage and hour complaint.
