No, an employer is not allowed to give contact info to any one... Also, debt collecters are not allowed to contact someone's work place. They do it anyway, but if you tell them to stop contacting your work place, that they are putting you job in jeapordy, they will stop. If that doesn't stop them from calling work, report them.

What is er tax?

U.S. tax law requires payment of social security and medicare taxes by both employees and their employer. The logical abbreviation for pay stub purposes would seem to be "Emp" for "Employee" and "Emp" for "Employer". Because the dual use of "Emp" would create confusion, the industry solution has been to use the first and last letters of "Employee" and "Employer". Hence, the phrase ER Taxes refers to the employer's portion of the total taxes payable to the IRS or Social Security Administration. Harley Snyder

Employment agreements are tricky contracts because while seemingly balanced, enforcement tends to work in favor of the employee but not for the employer. Non-compete and confidentiality clauses, for example, are often thrown out or their scope radically reduced by Courts. Payment obligations of the Employer are generally upheld to the last penny.Notwithstanding the tables being tilted against the Employer in these Agreements, there are still good reasons for having them signed by key people. The main one is to get them to sign the non-compete and confidentiality clauses. Generally, as their tenure of employment grows, their ability to seriously harm your firm in competitive employer increases substantially.In practical terms, I have always been able to get Employee agreement and signatures prior to starting employment. I have been rarely able to get these kinds of agreements signed after an employee has been employed for a while and then moves into a more senior position that suggests this kind of agreement is required. As a result, you are well advised to get this Agreement signed prior to the first day of physical work by Employee.1. Make three copies. One for employee; one for their file; one for your home or office safe.2. Non-Competes are often thrown out of Court or reduced in scope. Nevertheless, they are usually upheld when the violation is particularly clear and this is when you need it done most.3. To risk stating the obvious, this Agreement should not be used with Consultants, independent contractors of any kind, or employees in a union.

How long does a business have to keep employee time sheets?

Businesses should keep employee time sheets for as long as they might need them for tax purposes. If the IRS requests the company's or an employees payroll or tax information, you may need the time sheets to verify that your forms are correct. I'd say keep the time sheets for at least 2 or 3 years. If you have an electronic time clock to monitor employee attendance, you could easily store the information electronically for as long as you may need.

Does an employer have to have workers compensation insurance?

Precise requirements of workers compensation insurance are governed by state law. As a general rule, an employer is required to cover only genuine, common law employees. Many states use a rule to determine employee status based upon whether the employer has the right to hire and fire and to direct the worker's activities, hours, and other factors. If so, the person is likely to be an employee. If not, the person is likely to be an independent contractor (and issued a 1099 for tax purposes). Workers compensation insurance is required for the benefit of actual employees, not as to independent contractors. Note, though, that there are rules imposed by state law as to how many employees and employer must have before being required to maintain workers compensation insurance.
