Owners of very small businesses frequently imagine that human resources issues are for big business only. In reality, any number of laws, state and federal, apply to most businesses no matter how small. These include laws governing workplace safety, wages and hours, and workers compensation. Moreover, a business doesn't have to get very big before a number of other laws, including the Tennessee Human Rights Act, come into play. Finally, a growing business sometimes reaches the applicability of federal employment laws, including the ADA and the FMLA, without realizing these laws now apply. Learn how you can be prepared to protect your business from unwanted and avoidable human resources issues without investing more money than you can afford.
