Labor & Employment
You’ve successfully operated your business as lean as you possibly can, wearing every hat along the way, and now you’re fortunate enough to be able to hire some help. Congratulations! Hiring employees is both a privilege and a responsibility, and requires careful planning and consideration. From the start, employers must understand that just because they’re providing a paycheck doesn’t mean they can treat employees unfairly. This sounds simple enough but can be a challenge if the business doesn’t fully understand the law. Violations can happen intentionally or unintentionally, and you can be sure employees won’t care either way if they feel they have been mistreated.
