There are tens of thousands of laws written in the books of local, state, and federal government agencies, and new laws are written every year. Every citizen in the United States is expected to comply with these laws ranging from criminal activity to health and safety, and more. So how does a person prevent themselves from breaking the law?
If you’re in business or planning on opening a business soon, you are required to comply with the law in how you conduct your business operations. Health and safety laws are in place to protect everyone who comes in contact with your products, services, or premises. Labor laws protect workers from unreasonable pay or work conditions. Tax laws are designed to promote business owners to pay their fair share of taxes or suffer penalties if they don’t. License laws make sure everyone engaged in a particular specialty business is qualified to perform their duties. If you’re not sure if you are complying with the law, consult a business attorney for advice.
