DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT

What is the dosage?


Maximum recommended dosage is 2 tablets thrice a day, half an hour before the meals. Refer to your doctor for the dosage and duration suitable for you.




How many days should I take SugCare?


Usually, Insulin and other allopathic medicines like Metformin require a life-time dosage, leading to major side-effects in long run. According to the study reports, the SugCare™ shows significant improvement in blood glucose levels if taken for 60 days. You may discontinue SugCare™ once your sugar level is consistently controlled.




When should I take the tablets?


SugCare™ tablets/syrup should be taken half an hour before the meals in a dose advised by the doctor.




I have mild diabetes. How should I take SugCare?


Usually, a person with initial stage of diabetes should take max 2 tablets twice a day. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your daily blood sugar level (or HbA1c) reflects normal. Irregular consumption of the medicine may not produce the desired effect.




Are there any side-effects?


According to the Ministry of AYUSH's study on 800 patients, this formula has no side-effect on short term or long term. SugCare also passes all toxicological studies, heavy metal standards and other such quality standards.




I am on Insulin or Metformin. Should I take SugCare?


Yes, SugCare™ can also be taken with allopathic medicines. Over the period, as the health improves, SugCare™ can be continued while gradually withdrawing other medicines. Consult your doctor incase you are concerned about any withdrawal symptoms.




A few things to note


Ayurveda says lifestyle modifications like having a low-fat diet, regular exercise and proper sleep-cycle can help you to get better results. Do not take SugCare™ if you are pregnant or a lactating mother. Irregular dosage may not show desired effect. SugCare is also available in sugar-free syrup form.

EMPLOYEE VS. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

Why would I ever categorize workers as employees when I can categorize them as independent contractors and avoid payroll tax?


Everyone wants to save money on taxes, but there are specific requirements that must be met for you to be able to truly call a worker an "independent contractor." In general, the main test for whether you have an employee or an independent contractor is "control," however, the factors that go into determining which classification is correct are many. It's best to speak to an attorney to make sure you are in compliance with the law if you are using "independent contractors."

What are the rules with regard to the categorization of employees vs. independent contractors?


The best place to get an understanding of the difference of an employee and an independent contractor is to go straight to the source. The designation of employee vs. independent contractor is squarely a matter of federal taxation: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/understanding-employee-vs-contractor-designation




What are the potential consequences for mis-categorizing employees and independent contractors?


Walking the line between employee and independent contractor is not worth it, because it can come with big penalties if you get it wrong. The penalties may not be just back taxes, they can also be criminal! Learn more here: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/flsa/misclassification

WORKER SAFETY

Am I obligated to take steps to ensure my employees act safely?


Generally, as an employer, a safe workplace is something an employer must provide. However, some industries have specific safety requirements. Each industry is going to have specific regulations. A web search or an attorney can help set up a system for making sure the business’s legal duty of providing a safe workplace is satisfied.




How does the safety of my workplace relate to workers’ compensation claims?


An unsafe workplace can cause a worker’s compensation judgement to be inflated as a penalty. Know your state law.
