What Paperwork Do I Need to Give a New Hire

When hiring a new employee, there are things you must report, things you must keep available for inspection, and things you must simply give the new hire. Many small business owners aren’t fully aware of what new hire paperwork is required and it does vary some from state-to-state and some cities, parishes, or counties have their own regulations regarding documentation for and of newly hired personnel. It is best to check with your local business development office or chamber of commerce to understand the requirements in your area. In this article, I will share the things required in every state.

Why You Should Respond to Unemployment Claims

Responding to unemployment claims is important. You must respond to challenge the claim. Decisions can be made in your favor without your response, but if you don’t respond, the adjudicator (person who decides) is relying only on the word of the person who filed the claim. Sometimes the adjudicator isn’t given the full story, or even anything that resembles the truth.

Many small business owners do not understand unemployment, how it works, who pays for it, and how it impacts your bottom line. Unlike Social Security, Medicare, or State Disability Insurance (if a state has it), all of which are paid by the employee; unemployment is almost always paid by the employer. Currently, only Alaska, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have unemployment paid by the employee.

Leadership Lesson From COVID-19: Tough Decisions

It’s not easy to be an effective leader, but effective, strong, and decisive leadership is what is needed when you are entrusted with the health, safety, lives and/or livelihood of others. 

When Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee (the Governors of California and Washington state respectively) essentially shut down their states, the timing was excellent. The novel coronavirus had already invaded. Citizens were concerned. We had seen what happened in China and it was time for decisive action. While the decisions to send everyone home from work and shut down stores, entertainment, and religious gatherings seemed dramatic, the leadership shown was effective. As days and weeks followed they have been lauded for their actions. It didn’t stop the virus from afflicting the states’ residents but it apparently slowed the curve and magnitude of incidents.
