Labor & Employment


When a startup hires its first employee, it takes a very big step — bigger than the principals of the company might realize. It’s the business-world equivalent of a teenager becoming an adult.

There are many legal issues that may arise when employees are brought onboard — although in the long run, these are good problems because they’re stepping stones to increased growth and prosperity. Some of the issues that we can help guide you through include:

  • Workers Compensation
  • Conflicts with the Labor Board
  • Employees vs. Independent Contractors
  • Disabled Employees
  • Harassment and Discrimination
