We presented in a recent blog about protecting your business using proper business insurance planning. The attorney on your professional team often comes to the rescue, too, and saves your business from the consequences of harmful mistakes. If you assume that you are a sensible person who does not need an attorney on your team yet, you may think again after you read and watch the following.

In a conversation with business attorney Christina (Tina) Reger, she reported to us that entrepreneurs with whom she works often indicate that they plan to hire workers on a 1099 basis, rather than as employees. “Not so fast,” she advises them, and introduces the economic realities test established by the Supreme Court. Take a look and test your understanding.

Feel free to contact Christina M. Reger, at Bazelon Less Feldman PC, to be sure that your business is protected from costly mistakes.
