Best Hiring Practices for Small Businesses

Last month, Paul Willetts spoke at the Downtown Windsor Business Accelerator about considerations for small business as they engage new people – whether as employees, interns, or contractors – to support their business as it grows.

New and growing businesses can take a number of proactive steps when expanding their team to avoid unexpected liability down the road. Four of the most effective measures that a small business can put in place to protect their operations are:

  • To develop and use enforceable written employment agreements;
  • To engage┬ácontractors in the right circumstances;
  • To become informed of the duty to provide reasonable accommodations in the workplace; and
  • To understand how volunteers and unpaid interns may be properly used within their operations.
