The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board issued a decision today cancelling six of the Washington Redskins’ registered trademarks, finding that the marks disparage Native Americans. What does this mean for the team? https://blogmbbp.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/washington-redskins-trademark-canceled-what-does-this-mean-for-the-team/

On April 29, the Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development favorably reported out a bill which would enact a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (“UTSA”) coupled with a ban on non-competition agreements in Massachusetts.  The bill is quite similar to the Patrick Bill we described in our April 15, 2014 Employment Law Alert.  This marks the first time that the Joint Committee has favorably reported out a bill to the legislature that would regulate non-competition agreements in the Commonwealth.  The current legislative session ends as of July 31, so it remains to be seen if the legislature will take any action on the new bill.

A common misconception is that paying a salary to an employee makes the employee exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In reality, many salaried employees do not qualify for any exemption from overtime obligations, and relying solely upon whether employees are paid a salary in classifying them as exempt or nonexempt will almost certainly result in misclassifications. In this video Massachusetts Employment Lawyer Maura E. Malone discusses the process of determining whether your employees are exempt or non-exempt and the risks of failing to properly classify them. #FLSA   #overtimepay   #exempt
