Key Employment Issues for Small Business

Navigating Small Business Employment Laws

Course Description

Employees are the cornerstone of any successful business. Keeping them safe and happy can be the difference between retaining your key personnel or losing them. That’s why it’s vital to understand the key employment issues for small business.

As an employer, there have never been more unique challenges around staffing. Issues such as bullying/harassment, drug use, social media, and accommodation of disabilities can arise unexpectedly, and with increasing frequency.

  • Mitigating your risk for legal liability
