Employee Information for Small Businesses – Winmark Business Solutions

By: Wirth Business Credit  09-12-2011

Effective March 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, requires employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to provide unpaid reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk. The employer must also provide a private place, other than a bathroom, where the employee can express breast milk each time she has the need. Break time for nursing mothers must be provided for a period of one year following the birth of the child. Employees with less than 50 employees may be exempt from these requirements if they would impose an undue hardship by causing significant difficulty or expense when considered in relation to the size, financial resources, nature or structure of the business.

Some entrepreneurs may begin their business with the intent of franchising their operations; other businesses may elect to franchise an existing business because it has been so successful.

Franchising is a means of equity financing in which the franchisor "sells off" expansion rights in the business.
