As a Texas business owner, you likely use contracts as an integral part of your overall business structure and regular transactions. From the signed agreements you may have with your employees to deals you set in writing with other companies, signing your name on the dotted line is probably quite familiar to you. Hopefully, you know enough about contracts to understand their importance in relation to your bottom line interests. Put another way, contracts gone bad can do a lot of damage to your business.

Therefore, like most savvy business owners, you do your best to make sure you clearly understand all terminology, obligations and responsibilities contained within a proposed agreement before you add your signature. Even then, problems may arise down the line that bring the validity of a certain deal into question. This is where a notary public can be a great asset.

Important HR needs in your business

Posted on in Uncategorized

As your business continues to grow and you hire more employees, you are likely finding yourself taking on more roles within the business, particularly the role of the human resources representative. Whether you hire someone for this position or manage the department yourself, much of what HR does is preventative, from the interview process through the completion of separation surveys.

It may seem overwhelming, but through HR proactivity, your employees know their rights and responsibilities, and you have clear guidelines within which to act. Therefore, it may benefit you to take a close look at your HR department to ensure there are no gaps or oversights that may come back to bite you in the event of a dispute or accusation.

Handling handbook issues

If you own and operate your small business for any length of time, you will more than likely end up in a dispute with another business, a vendor or a customer. In many cases, the dispute can be resolved with minimum fuss.

In other cases, however, the dispute seems to only grow and fester. You or the other party involved may begin talking about litigation as a way to resolve the issue. Fortunately, there is another option that could work out better for all of the parties involved: mediation.

In Texas and throughout the nation, entrepreneurship is the wave of the future. In fact, many people are choosing to forgo post-secondary education in favor of stepping right out into the deep to give their business-related dreams a try. Some people are better prepared to launch such ventures than others. Creating a successful business may be your current dream, or, are you one of the lucky ones who has already brought your dream to fruition? Either way, you're likely familiar with the topic of choosing a business model.

If someone asked you to rate choosing a business model on a scale of importance with one being insignificant and unnecessary and 10 being absolutely crucial to entrepreneurial success, how would you score it? Hopefully, it would score high.

The bottom line

The success of your business is something for which you have worked hard. However, with more business comes added responsibility. Among those responsibilities may be hiring more employees to learn about your brand or your particular way of offering a service.

Bringing new workers into the company may also bring questions about protecting your brand, preventing misunderstandings and reducing the possibility of legal trouble. Perhaps you are considering implementing an employee contract to accomplish these goals.
