As a small business owner, it can be easy to get caught up in daily operations and lose sight of legal issues that may arise. Stephanie Cumley of viHRtual HR Partner Services will discuss some of the most common employment laws you and your managers should be aware of so you can protect your business from fines and penalties or litigation.
