Find out the best ways for handling background checks and steering clear of employee termination traps.

Get the latest on business financing in the current economy, and discover alternatives to traditional bank financing. Gain an understanding of important provisions of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, including a one-year self-employment tax break and cell phone taxation.
