Parlance Media’s publishing division releases a new guide to help microbusiness owners hire and pay employees.
Dennis, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/18/2012 -- Deanna Lohnes, CEO and Founder of Parlance Media, a copywriting agency specializing in web copy for solo entrepreneurs, recently released the second edition of Parlance Media’s human resources guide.
“The Down & Dirty Guide to HR for Very Small Business was written to help an underserved niche. There are hundred, if not thousands, of guides to help small businesses with marketing, sales or financing. But, no one is talking to these people about hiring employees or how to decide if they are contractors.” Lohnes went on to say, “I want to help microbusinesses avoid lawsuits and problems that can arise from misclassification and other human resources issues. If an employee complains, the penalties to the small business can be enormous.”
The guide was inspired by a Department of Labor crackdown on misclassification of employees. Misclassification refers to labeling an employee a contractor to avoid payroll taxes. “It happens all the time in microbusinesses. Business owners need the information to make the right decisions,” Lohnes said.
