Legal requirements for workers changed in 2020. Understanding the difference between employees, contractors, and outsourcing is the focus of an online seminar from the Paris Small Business Development Center schedule for Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10:30 am.
Tisha Dodge of the law firm Dodge Legal Group, SPC, will lead the seminar. They believe the firm is the first Texas social purpose corporate law firm in the state. It provides legal services to social enterprises, start-ups, established businesses, and non-profits. Practice
areas include business formation, contract, and employment law, intellectual property, and Internet law.
Dodge will explain how businesses hire help as their business grows. Employers will learn to understand the differences between employees and contractors and whether outsourcing would make a difference. It will also provide knowledge on complying with the vast array of
federal and state employment laws.
Believing that entrepreneurs may make a profit and still serve a greater good, Dodge works to stay on the cutting edge of her industry. Through StartUp Greater Good, PBC, she created the Texas Social Enterprises as a Texas public benefit corporation dedicated to supporting social entrepreneurs.
