I’m really excited about today’s Office Talk interview because we’re diving into a topic that I get so many questions about! I’m joined by fellow lawyer, Jenny Wiegley of the Maier Law Group as we walk through what you need to do when you’re ready to hire your very first employee.
Based here in California, Jenny has specialized in employment law for her entire career, and in this episode she’s sharing her checklist of what to you need to know when you’re ready to hire.
As you’ll hear us mention many times in the interview, the laws around employment issues can be confusing and sometimes it can feel like you’re navigating a maze, but it really doesn’t have to be that way.
