Staying on the right side of the law is something we all strive for in our personal lives as well as business dealings. The regulatory burden on businesses, small and large, is a hot topic of conversation these days, from the campaign trail to the boardroom. Whether or not current regulations are onerous, too lax or just right is not my concern today. What I want to discuss is the importance of knowing who you are doing business with and how that affects your own ability to stay in compliance.
The legal and regulatory environment is constantly shifting and it is a challenge to keep up with all the news and developments. Nothing can take the place of your own research, good counsel and proper legal advice in ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. What I offer today is nothing like that kind of advice, it’s simply a few things that caught my eye as being pretty relevant to those of us in the staffing industry. My aim is to raise awareness, whether it is the first time you hear about something or it’s just a timely reminder.
