    HR Basics for New Small Business Owners

    Please join the WNG Entrepreneur Roundtable when we meet with Edgar Ndjatou, Founder/Principal of Officium, who will discuss with us "HR Basics for New Small Business Owners."

During his presentation, Edgar will provide information on HR basics that one should know before adding staff. Topics covered will include the practical realities of hiring hiring employees, the DC metro area landscape for HR compliance, and tips on deciding whether someone should be an independent contractor or an employee.
