Understanding the protections provided to military workers under USERRA - II

In our last post, we started discussing the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, the landmark federal law that requires all employers -- no matter their size -- to place employees who have left to perform military service in the same position upon their return.

Understanding the protections provided to military workers under USERRA

As a nation, we are eternally grateful to those brave men and women who have served or are currently serving in our nation's armed forces. As a sign of this gratitude, our nation is proud to provide veterans with access to healthcare, education and a host of other benefits, and to extend certain legal protections to those individuals who are currently serving.

Struggling with how to tell your kids you're getting divorced?

Like most Tennessee parents, you obviously want what's best for your children. It's quite the challenge to parent in the modern world at times. Kids face all sorts of problems as they grow and mature, from peer-related issues at school to temptations to try drugs, alcohol and/or sexual-related activities at shockingly young ages. The last thing you want to be to your children is a source of turmoil. Perhaps that's why you're having a difficult time figuring out how to tell them you've decided to divorce.

Some points for small business owners to keep in mind about commercial leases

Whether you are an established small business or a fledgling operation looking to make your mark, there will invariably come a point when you need to consider commercial space. For those in the former category, this might mean relocating to a more suitable location, while for those in the latter category, it might mean setting up shop in an area favored by a target market.

Decisions, decisions: Should you buy or lease business equipment?

As we've discussed in previous posts, once an entrepreneur has laid the foundation for their new operation -- selecting an entity, drafting a business plan, hiring employees, etc. -- there is still a significant amount of work that needs to be completed. For example, office or commercial space will need to be found, and new business equipment secured.

Small business owners must always be mindful of federal, state discrimination laws

It goes without saying that when an individual makes the monumental decision to start a small business, he or she will be confronted a host of vital tasks that must be accomplished in the short-term. Indeed, commercial space must be purchased or leased, shelves stocked with the necessary inventory, business formation documents executed and employees hired.
