Workshop: Employment Law Basics for Start-Ups and Small Businesses
On October 29, 2014, Bello Welsh will present a session on HR and Employment Law Issues for Start Ups and Small Businesses at the Cambridge Innovation Center, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA.
Start-up companies focus on developing their idea and bringing their product or service to market. Small existing businesses work to implement their core business goals and strategies. In either case, there is often little inclination or staff to pay close attention to day-to-day employee issues. After all, how difficult can it be to manage a workforce comprised of a relatively few employees? The answer is “very.” HR is a complicated patchwork of federal, state and local laws, regulations and requirements, most of which apply in some form to employers of all types and sizes. HR problems can surface when least expected, and can be extremely time consuming and costly.
In this discussion, you’ll learn how to manage the complexities of Small Business HR and to minimize the risk of preventable lawsuits, penalties, and time-consuming employee-relations issues. For example, you’ll learn about:
- Creating and maintaining appropriate documentation, including job descriptions, offer letters, personnel policies, and other personnel documents;
- Managing employee performance and terminations;
- Managing leaves of absence;
- Dealing with wage & hour issues; and
- Handling internal complaints and investigations
The session will be held on October 29, 2014, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. , at the Cambridge Innovation Center, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA, in the Charles River Room (14th Floor).
