Structured Data Testing errors ... Help!
I am trying to add Schema to our company's home page however when I do the Structured Data Testing I keep getting these same two errors which I have no idea how to fix:

The option to select business hours is only available for local businesses or subtypes. We suggest you select Organization for your markup but remove the hours section. Don't worry about the URL error, that's a bug that'll go away when you add the code to your page and then test the page URL, not a code snippet.
