Employers, I Implore You!

I am a small business owner, and I am lucky to have many friends and clients who own their own businesses. I have found that regardless of the backgrounds of these friends and clients, the size of their businesses, or their industries, that a common theme exists: a lack of awareness of potential legal pitfalls that employers can face if they aren’t being proactive.
