Once you take the leap from being a solo operator to being an employer, then you'd better be 100% legit because your employees have potential to be much more of a liability to you than you are to yourself.
Well, you are either a legitimate business that honorably operates within the strict guidelines of the law or you're not…there is no grey area…some of us choose to be law abiding and some of us choose a less than honorable path…to each his/her own.
