Employment Law - Employer Articles
Interviewing Job Applicants
It is essential for employers to receive the information they need about prospective employees in order to make the best decision about who has the best qualifications to meet their employment needs. However, there are certain types of information that employers are either not allowed to gather about job applicants or are restricted in their use. Thus, employers need to develop fair hiring practices to ensure consistency in the process and compliance with the law.
What Should Employers Include in Employee Handbooks?
All employers, even small business owners, should create handbooks of the company's policies and procedures and provide copies to all of their employees. While handbooks are not a legal requirement, they provide a simple way for employers to record their policies and disseminate them to the workforce. They also provide a reliable tool supervisors and employees can refer to when in doubt of a particular policy.
Immigration Law Case Summaries
[07/25] US v. Valdovinos
Defendant's sentence for unlawfully entering the United States after being deported is affirmed, where: 1) the sentence was increased on the ground that he illegally reentered the country after a prior North Carolina conviction for felony drug trafficking, i.e., a drug offense punishable by more than one year in prison; and 2) although defendant's guilty plea to the prior North Carolina conviction was entered as part of an agreement that capped his sentence at 12 months once the court accepted his plea, his North Carolina conviction was punishable by imprisonment exceeding one year based on his prior record level, offense class, and sentencing range; and therefore, 3) the prior conviction qualifies as a federal sentencing predicate.
