Top 6 payroll and HR mistakes that startups make

Businesses don’t always have a payroll or HR expert on staff in the beginning. Unfortunately, lack of proper expertise in these areas can lead to these common, and costly, payroll and HR mistakes.

  • Not having or clearly communicating company policies and procedures
  • Workplace discrimination or discriminatory hiring practices
  • Lack of compliance with local employment law
  • Not offering mandated employee benefits
  • Incorrectly classifying employees
  • Not offering competitive health benefits, or paying too much for health benefits
