Prevalent throughout the operation of a business venture are considerations related to hiring, retaining and dismissing employees. These considerations can vary widely from drafting employee contracts to payroll tax and withholdings to employee compensation or separation policies. Many employee situations can be routinely addressed, but some can be traps for the unwary leading to unpleasant tax and liability consequences. Even if you do not currently have employees, these issues should be considered, as you will likely need employees or independent contractors to serve your customers as your business grows.
