Employee Issues

If you have hired employees or are considering it, even if your employees are family members, you need to talk to us.

Learn how to be in compliance with the Department of Labor and the various agencies that regulate some portion of the complex employment laws, and how you may benefit from pre-tax owner or employee benefits.

Let us educate you on the various labor laws and how to comply with them.  We will help you comply with the Department of Labor requirements and the various employment regs that affect your business, including immigration law reporting and Family Leave.

It is important that you understand the rules for employees v. independent contractors and what you need to do if you misclassify an employee.  You could be liable for the payroll and back taxes of a “contractor” that the IRS determined to actually be an employee.

The penalties are large if you violate EDD rules or pay a payroll deposit late, or misfile employee reporting docs.  We will help you understand how to maintain employment records and how long to retain employee files.

Avoid mistakes in hiring and terminating employees and common errors in employment practices.  If you ignore the Rules, filings, or documentation required, you could incur large tax assessments, fines and/or legal liability, including employee lawsuits.

If, in turn, you comply with the regulations, you and your family could benefit from many pre-tax owner benefits allowed by the law.  We can inform you as to the pros and cons for each of your options.
