Hiring Your First Employee – Basics that every founder should know.

Employees are essential to growing a healthy business, but poor human resource management or failure to comply with regulatory requirements can be one of the most significant expenses dragging your startup down.

At our August 12th workshop, Janelle Milodragovich, formerly with the Foster Pepper employment law group, presented on employment law basics for startups.

Janelle covered the following topics, which every founder should be familiar with:

• Independent contractor v. employee 
• At-will employment 
• Employment agreements (including intellectual property provisions) 
• Payroll laws and best practices 
• Performance management 
• Termination procedures
