BHMK Law’s physical office is now open and operating on a modified basis. Most of our attorneys and staff have returned to the office and are on site to serve your needs, while those who are not continue to work remotely and take advantage of the technology investments we have made over the last few years. We are limiting the number of persons in the office at one time and have created special protocols around client visits to the office. Please discuss your needs and our protocols with your attorney or staff member. We are proud to continue to serve you at this time and continue to prioritize the health and safety of our clients, staff, and attorneys.

Complying with the law when hiring employees

| Oct 18, 2019 | Employment Law And Advising |

As Ohio businesses grow, owners may find themselves coming to a point at which they need to hire employees. This can be an exciting time because it means that the company is expanding, but it can also be nerve-wracking because owners certainly want to ensure that any new help is right for the job. Additionally, future employers need to make sure that they comply with the law when hiring employees.

One of the first steps that a business owner needs to take is to obtain an employer ID number. This ID number is used by the IRS to keep up with a particular employer’s business information. Plus, the EIN allows the employer to start payroll and keep up with the necessary tax-related information for the business.

Employers will also need to make sure that the employees fill out the proper paperwork before starting the job. The paperwork could include W-4 tax forms and verification forms indicating that the person can work in the United States. Employers may also want to carry out background checks before hiring any applicants.

Because hiring employees can be complicated, Ohio business owners will certainly want to make sure that they take the right steps for doing so. Without the right paperwork or without following the correct procedures, employers could inadvertently violate the law or put themselves in a position where they could be held liable for certain issues. If employers want to avoid unnecessary complications, they may want to consult with an employment law attorney before bringing in new employees.
