Tip Income Issues: Government mandated allocated tip and related TRAC programs affect the food services and certain other industries. We have programs to educate both employers and employees in this critical area.
Employer vs. Independent Contactor Issues: The classification of a person as an employee as an independent contractor is not just up to the parties involved. Some relationships are statutorily employer/employee relationships, enforced by State and/or Federal agencies, while others are subjective according to criteria set by the IRS. We can help you be sure you are not in potential trouble with regulatory authorities.
Regulatory Compliance: Equal employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Occupational Safety Health Act (OSHA), and Environmental Protection Act (EPA) regulations are the major, but not all-inclusive, concerns that businesses today must face. We have access to the pertinent rules and can help you be sure you are in compliance.
