The ‘new normal’ raises new questions for owners wanting to avoid risks for their small businesses.

As our economy gets back to “a new normal” there are many new legal questions. Small business owners want to keep their employees, and their business, safe, of course. The challenge is to know what steps to take, what kind of requirements are recommended with evolving protocols and new best practices to manage employees and avoid risks that could damage your business.

Join us for up to date information and guidance on best practices and legal policies. Small business owners will learn how they can keep their employees happy and healthy and protect their businesses legally. Attendees questions will be answered as time allows.
