My dentist’s office used to be a Mom and Pop operation. Dad and son were both dentists. Mom ran the office. Sister was a hygienist. I heard Dad had built the building.
Mom and Dad retired, sister and her husband started an unrelated business and one day there was a new logo outside, and my dentist told me he had sold the practice and was now an employee. He was grinning. All the worries of being the employer and landlord were lifted from his shoulders.
From my years of experience in the murky depths of employment law, I understood his relief. So, I imagine, does every small business owner. Employers have a dizzying number of responsibilities. The requirement to meet payroll, which is an obligation under law even if you can’t feed your own family, is only the beginning. You have to be concerned with everything from occupational safety to preventing your employees from making stupid sexually harassing remarks to each other. You are responsible for the insurance, the taxes and regulations specific to your industry. And maintenance of the property. And, finally, doing the work that you’re in business to do in the first place.
