SXSW PanelPickers are open! Please vote for our Managing Partner Chris Lamb’s panel “Startup 2.0: Staffing Up.”

Scaling your startup just isn’t possible without good employees. And many startups cite finding and retaining staff as one of their biggest pain points. But if you aren’t investing in a happy and productive workforce, company morale isn’t your only concern. You also expose your company to legal troubles. From how you draft job descriptions to how you classify overtime, critical nuances could make or break your future. Misclassifying an employee as a contractor may mean a big fine. And how can you protect your company’s trade secrets, from proprietary formulas to business plans? What sort of agreements should your company have with its employees to best protect its confidential information? In this session, Fortis Law Partners’ Christine Lamb will review HR SOPs and how to avoid pitfalls.
