Your business is booming. In three short years, you’ve grown from a solo landscape and lawn treatment service in a home office to a full-blown professional suite with an office manager, administrator and a team of professionals who work all over the city. With three new hires this week, you’ve reached 16 employees. Congratulations!
Did you know that when you cross the threshold to 15 employees, certain federal laws apply to your business? From our HR Support Center, here is a brief summary of what you need to know about them:
Additionally, there may be state laws that apply as your company grows. Penalties for violations of these statutes can be costly. For example, fines can run as high as $75,000 for the first violation and $150,000 for subsequent violations of the ADA.
You can get a complete list of the different federal and state laws that may apply based on your location and employee count by subscribing to HR Support Center. So even if you’re not in the landscaping business, you can nip those fines in the bud and potentially trim your legal expenses back as well!
