As the calendar has turned and we’re well on our way into 2018, as is typical, the new year has brought with it new labor laws. Whether you exclusively use employees, contractors or a mix of both, chances are your State has implemented new legislation that may affect your business. Federally, there are several new regulations that impact everyone.
