Re: Obsolete Tool Disposition

Hello James: as Mike indicates, it is state specific. Most states require sending notice to last known place of business and taking out an ad in the local newspaper there (if no response to the letter you sent). Then, if no response after 30 days (sometimes 60 in certain states), you can dispose of ...

Re: USTR Injection Mold Duty Exemption

The exemption applies to all; it is not limited to Tier 1 entities. The exemption relates to the mold, not the company importing the mold. Nothing released from the government yet on the process.

Re: Salaried Time Off

There are a few answers depending on what the issue is exactly. Are we looking to (1) reduce salary for the time off or (2) simply require the employee to use the appropriate bank of leave (PTO or vacation) without any reduction in salary. (1) Generally, an employer must pay an employee the entire s...
