Bruce’s Summary: Don’t overlook federal, state and local employment laws when trying to get your start-up launched. Take your time to ensure that all code is adhered to or it could cost your new company hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay and fines. Make sure items including independent contractor vs. employee requirements, exempt v. non-exempt status, confidentiality and invention assignments, and commission plans are clear and in writing before you “open your doors.” It will save you in the long run. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
