It’s no secret that ignoring state and federal business regulations can have very dire consequences. Unfortunately for most small business owners, the laws are very vague and almost impossible for an average business owner to understand. In fact if you aren’t sure of your compliance with these regulations it’s very likely you aren’t even aware of most of them.

There are now more than 5 million small businesses in operation in California, so it is very easy for your business to go completely un-noticed by these regulators; however, all it takes is a simple mishap, mistake or accident to completely turn your life upside down.
