Extremely short version:

  • Pay overtime for people who do not meet the criteria for ‘exempt’

  • Treat employees as employees, not independent contractors 

I perceive lots of ministries and churches are exposed on the first and third points.

For an easy-read discussion of these issues, check-out the above article. For an extended discussion, call any CPA.
