Do small businesses need to worry about discrimination laws?
Yes, just because you own a small business doesn’t mean that you are exempt from being subject to employment discrimination laws. This however, also depends on what state you are in and your business is incorporated in. Many discrimination statutes limit the size of the employer which will be covered by the statute. It would be best to consult with an UpCounsel employment lawyer in your state to determine which laws apply to your business.
