As if business owners don’t already have too much on their plates … on today’s program we discuss two important issues: employment law and commercial insurance. Ignorance of either one of these areas could even bring about the end of the business … and has for others! What am I referring to? In studio today we discuss disturbing developments in specific areas of employment law, and how to protect your business from frivolous litigation arising from various situations that can “come out of left field.”

To dive deeper into these topics, R. J. Kelly invited in Ken Rose, Principal at The Rose Group and Jack Landers, Senior Account Executive for Teague Insurance. The conversation centers around the mistakes business owners make in treating employees as 1099 workers instead of W-2 – meal breaks and other wage & hour issues – overtime pay along with the lack of business insurance customized for specific types of companies and their issues.

Ken Rose has over 40 years of experience and is an employment law expert, investigator for workplace complaints, and mediator for employment disputes.
