      Employment Law Compliance
There are a few basic laws covered in regard to hiring/compensation in AZ. (CCC) is 650 employees-looking to expand by 20% -would be 130 additional employees. Those 130 employees would be in Arizona where the company is looking to expand-CCC is currently in Detroit Michigan where the minimum wage in Arizona is currently $7.90. The first issue at hand is the Arizona Civil Rights Act. This law prohibits discrimination of potential candidates based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, age, national origin, or genetic test results. (BLR, 2014) This Act covers companies that employ more than 14 employees. Another hiring law in Arizona is the prohibiting of “blacklisting”. This refers to any agreements among employers that prevent individuals from being hired. (BLR, 2014) Arizona also has a Medical Marijuana Act. This Act prohibits “employers from discriminating against applicants or employees in hiring, termination, or by imposing any term or condition of employment or otherwise penalizing a person based on either:
      • The person's status as a registered medical marijuana patient/cardholder, or
      • A registered qualifying patient's positive drug test for marijuana components or metabolites, unless the patient used, possessed, or was impaired by marijuana on the premises of the place of employment or during the hours of employment.
The law provides an exception if compliance would cause an employer to lose a monetary or licensing benefit under federal law or regulations” (BLR, 2014)
Arizona does not have state specific laws for: overtime, meals, breaks, bereavement leave, jury duty, vacation time, paid sick time/unpaid sick time (but does adhere to FMLA). Employees can be required to work on holidays for no additional pay on holidays,...
