It is possible to get caught up in all matters and forget that even small businesses are required to abide by certain laws. Failure to do so can lead to a host of legal issues that could affect the performance of the business. Even if you are operating with a few employees and resources, it is important to understand legal matters that can arise against your business and measures that you can take to prevent them.
