We are closing in on the end of the first quarter of 2016. From all economic indicators and reporting, Southern Nevada has not only stabilized but is starting to grow again. What does that mean for you and your business? I am hopeful that the economic growth is having a positive effect on your bottom line. Will you be expanding? Looking for new space? Developing new business relationships? Hiring new employees?
Gordon Law is here for all of your business needs. Please take a look at our website for previous blogs that can provide you with insight on areas that may affect your business.
According to a Las Vegas Review-Journal article in January 2016, if job creation stays at its current rate, Nevada's small businesses should reach peak employment by late 2016. Managers within small businesses are looking to fill their ranks with new employees.
If your business is among those that are looking to grow, you must make sure that you start the process in a way that will enable you to hire qualified individuals without exposing your business to liability. Employment litigation is one of the fastest growing areas of litigation that employers face. Employers may face legal exposure, not just from conduct after you hire an employee, but from your conduct during the hiring process itself.

As our business community strengthens, I believe it is important to help new entrepreneurs gain the tools to achieve their dreams. To that end, it is my privilege to have been asked to give a presentation by SCORE Las Vegas, Women's Business Enterprise Counsel West, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada and the Las Vegas Library District on, "Protecting Your Business - Part I: Reviewing a Contract or Lease."
This free presentation, on March 31, 2016 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the West Charleston Library, gives participants an opportunity to also meet with lawyers and mentors from SCORE. Should you have additional questions or want to attend, please contact SCORE.
