For entrepreneurs looking to understand the legal aspects of hiring employees, Berkeley Public Library presents a seminar on April 10, 2013 at 2:00 pm in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room of the Central Branch, 2090 Kittredge Street. This seminar is designed to assist business owners in better understanding the challenges faced in employment law. For many companies, people costs are often the largest single cost and the most difficult to manage. This is especially true of service businesses, which continue to be 85% of all new businesses. Our seminar will cover topics including: (1) how to hire and fire employees (2) understanding California wage requirements (3) working with independent contractors (4) employee benefits (5) and other employee related topics.
