Appellate decision complicates wage and hour complaint defense

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires Georgia employers to pay overtime to hourly employees. On occasion, an employee will file a wage and hour complaint against an employer, claiming that they were not paid the overtime they were due. Up until recently, companies that found themselves defending against lawsuits filed by employees after leaving an employer -- whether they left voluntarily or were terminated -- could raise the defense that the employee should have brought the discrepancy in pay to the company's attention prior to leaving.

Mama June accused of breach of contract by TLC

Georgia fans of the reality television series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" are most likely aware that the show was suddenly cancelled on Oct. 24, 2014, amid allegations that Mama June was involved in a relationship with a man convicted of child molestation. In the aftermath of the show's cancellation, TLC -- the network that carried the show -- is accusing Mama June of breach of contract. However, she says the network breached the contract first, so she should not have to honor it.

Dealing with computer abuse and fraud in a Georgia business

Technological advances in recent years mean that nearly every business in Georgia relies on computers as a vital component of their day-to-day operations. Employees are given varying levels of access, depending on their job duties and need to know. It stands to reason that ensuring that a company's computer system remains secure is crucial. However, as large corporations like Target have discovered, abuse and fraud are not always easy to prevent and can cause substantial financial losses.

Sometimes franchise opportunities come along unexpectedly

Georgia entrepreneurs who want to start a business may decide that purchasing a franchise is the best option for them. Once that decision is made, however, the search for the perfect opportunity could prove to be a challenge. If an individual is open to different prospects, a franchise opportunity could come along that provides some savings that can be invested in the business.
