Employment Regulations: Keeping Up With the Feds

Employment regulations are in place to ensure that employees are treated fairly and aren’t endangered by their job or their workplace. According to its website, the United States Department of Labor enforces more than 180 federal laws. In addition, each state has its own set of regulations that your business is required to follow. There are three times as many national employee-related laws today as there were 30 years ago.

As an employer, failure to comply with employment regulations can result in heading to court, and jeopardizing the very existence of your business.
