    Your Small Business Is Compliant, Right? Probably Not.

    I can hear you saying, “Why yes, of course it is!  We’ve crossed all our T’s, dotted all our I’s, paid a lot of money to get it right, WE’VE GOT THIS!”  And I’m sure you do...when it comes to the IRS, OSHA, and whatever other agency we can think of with regard to your operational structure.  But what about your HR processes?  Can you honestly say you’ve got this?  I’m betting you can’t.
