All the energy and creativity that you have as an entrepreneur or small business owner might be wasted if your new or growing business is hit with a lawsuit. Launching a new business can be exciting, but there can be a number of pitfalls that can knock the wind out of your sails. This course gives you the fundamental information that you need to know to navigate the human resources aspects of running a business. Think about what kind of entity (LLC, S-Corp, etc.) is right for your businesses and how to find the people you need to conduct your business, whether they are volunteers, employees, or contractors. Get tips on recruiting and a variety of HR rules that will hold you in good stead with any people you hire. Weigh the pros and cons of outsourcing and how to avoid potential loss. Additional topics include paying your own salary, screening vendors and contracts, and staying out of hot water with social media. David Stephens has a master's degree in human resource management and has worked in the business and nonprofit world.
