Hiring & Firing

 

Hiring and firing team members is the single most expensive part of your business, bar none. And most entrepreneurs simply have no idea how to go about it, not just from a legal perspective, but from a how to run your business perspective.

 

We can help you hire right, train smart and fire when necessary so that you keep as much time and money in your business as possible.

 

You’ve heard the saying, “hire slow and fire fast”, right? Well that makes a whole lot of sense when you have the right legal processes for hiring and firing in place. If you don’t, well this can be a sticky, tricky area. In fact, hiring and firing could very well be the biggest risk area in your business.

 

What are some of the risks?

 

Well there’s a whole lot you need to know about when it comes to how you hire – what you can say and not say, what you can ask and must never ask, how to set up payroll, designate team members as independent contractors or employees, and of course, how to fire.

 

Hiring and firing team members is your greatest area of risk in your business. We mitigate that risk.
