Employer Best Practices

    -- Penalties for missing I-9 forms range up to $1,100 per employee. 
    -- Fines for employing undocumented workers reach up to $11,000 per employee. 
> In accordance with the Affordable Care Act, all employers need to provide a Notice of Coverage Options to all new hires, regardless of whether or not the employer offers health care. 
    -- Businesses with over 50 employees are required by law to offer health coverage to their employees.
    -- Fines for noncompliance range up to $2000 per employee (not counting the first 30 employees). 
> LMR highly recommends that businesses provide job descriptions and employee handbooks to their employees to ensure that workplace expectations and policies are clear and well known. 
   -- Job descriptions should outline responsibilities, requirements, and qualifications related to specific positions.
    -- Employee handbooks can outline company values, chain of command, compensation and time-off policies, benefits, and employee conduct expectations.
