Keeping your spouse in your will after divorce

With divorce, each couple's case is unique. Sometimes, the experience can be very difficult for both parties and leave each spouse with a considerable amount of bitterness. However, the end of marriage is not always very difficult, and some couples are able to remain friends after they have separated. Often, people make changes to their estate plan once they split up with their partner, such as removing them from a will or making changes to who is listed as a beneficiary and what they will receive. However, some people decide to keep their spouse in their will following a divorce.

When it's time to let an employee go

As a business owner, all sorts of employment-related hassles might arise. For example, you could have difficulty finding qualified applicants or you might be facing problems related to harassment in the workplace. However, some issues can be especially difficult to work through, such as the termination of an employee's position. Aside from how hard it can be to make these types of decisions, things can become even more complicated if an employee believes that his or her job was terminated due to discrimination, retaliation, or some other factor that is illegal. As a result, it is crucial for you to make sure that you approach this matter correctly and take steps to protect your business in the event that these allegations surface.

When did you last update your business's employee manual?

Every business should have a manual that outlines employee policies and workplace rules. This manual can prevent workplace misconduct and give employees the tools to report problems. Many businesses will create an employee handbook but then forget to update it.
