Compliance Pro Small Business edition is designed for employers with
less than fiftenn employees. The North Texas Small Business Development
Center is currently utilizing the Federal Version to provide them with
an instant resource for their members and highly recommends our programs.
The program is written in layman's terms and includes practical guidance.
The basis for determining the number of employees for Federal Law is
calculated as follows; number of employees on the payroll for twenty
calendar workweeks in the preceding calendar year. This includes part
time employees, family members on the payroll even though they may
not actually work at the company, and those who are in leave. This
edition does not contain chapterson the various federal anti-discrimination
laws, which are covered in detail in the standard edition of Compliance
Pro because these statutes do not apply to smaller companies. Note:
If your company does $10,000.00 in business with the Federal Government
you are covered by Executive Order 11246, which not only prohibits
discrimination but requires affirmative action to end discrimination.
The program recommends voluntary compliance dealing with the hiring
process and the ADA even though they are not applicable to smaller
employters for many reasons which are outlined in the program. Some
states have statutes similar to the Federal statutes and apply those
statutes to smaller employers.
