DescriptionVolume_IssueYearMonthPDF
The Firehouse Lawyer knows the importance of avoiding liability: We now address the tort of wrongful discharge in violation of public policy, along with defamation claims arising out of workplace investigations; and then we talk about the payment of compensatory time in lieu of overtime compensation. 08-11200811v08n11nov2008.pdf
We now look at RCW 38.40.060, which controls when military leave shall be granted to public employees; the “salary basis’ test for determining exempt status under FLSA; whether employees may sue for negligence, defamation or invasion of privacy; and then we perform a comprehensive analysis of volunteerism under FLSA. 03-0319993v03n03mar1999.pdf
The Firehouse Lawyer may be controversial at times, but due to recent legislative changes, the definition of "lowest responsible bidder", for purposes of procurement contracts, may have changed--for the better; we also discuss whether certain fire district activities are subject to business-and-occupation taxes, when benefit charges may be imposed on religious organizations, and whether fire districts and RFAs may sue for defamation. 13-0820158August_2015.pdf
