How Do I Minimize My Risks As An Employer?

The best way to minimize your risks is to make sure that you have a well-drafted employee handbook and that you go over those policies with each employee. Make sure it is documented that they have received and reviewed the employee policies. Once all that is signed off on, then if it is breached, you will be covered.

Make sure that your employees sign non-compete and intellectual property rights agreements. Those may be one document or they may be separate documents, depending on the complexities of the issues that you want to prevent. Be sure to work with your accountant to make sure your taxes are paid properly so that you don’t get into trouble with the IRS or the Florida Department of Revenue.

Do I Need A Lawyer To Start A Business?

An attorney is not legally required to start a business but it is highly recommended. The fact of the matter is that if you cannot afford to hire some professionals to get you going, you may want to wait until you have that money saved to start your business. It may even be worth borrowing money for. In the end, the issues you may deal with down the road, after starting a business on your own, are likely to cost more than the upfront cost of a lawyer assisting you in the beginning.
