HR 101:

Hiring, Onboarding, and Paying Employees

Considering growing your small business team? The SCORE / Paychex seminar, HR101 – Hiring, Onboarding, and Paying Employees, helps entrepreneurs select and develop productive and engaged employees.  Learn about some of the most important employee management issues for small businesses - and how you can take action today.

We will cover:

  • Interviewing and hiring:  learn how to develop a job descriotion that clarifies expectations, and identify the skillsets that best meet your organizations needs
  • Employee classification:  information on the Fair Labor Standards act (FLSA) and the exempt or non-exempt status of employees
  • Paying employees:  determine appropriate compensation for the roles you are looking to fill.  Know ahead of time your guidelines for overtime, flex work, and fringe benefits.
  • Legal matters: review the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), I-9 forms, and other relevant documentation for employment


The workshop is sponsored by SCORE Boston and Paychex, a SCORE partner.  The presenters will be Tyler Stewart and Mike Botte of Paychex, and there will be other HR generalists, Michael Bookman and John Trowbridge, to answer questions.
