  2. Failing to Maintain Performance/Disciplinary Records
  3. Not Requiring Managers To Document Performance Problems
  4. Misclassifying Employees as Independent Contractors
  5. Making All Employees “Salaried”
  6. Letting Employees Work “Off The Clock” Or Volunteer
  7. Drafting “Overly Optimistic” Personnel Policies
  8. Not Appropriately Addressing Disability Issues
