Read NFIB’s positions on labor issues affecting small business:

Small business owners know that employees are their most valuable resource. Small business owners work hard to train and retain employees by creating a rewarding workplace. However, government rules and regulations have made labor issues more complicated than ever.

Small businesses operate differently than large businesses; they do not have human-resources departments to track the changing standards and mandates that affect their workforce and workplace.

NFIB urges Congress to simplify the employment process for small business, eliminate burdensome mandates and prevent cumbersome regulations that inhibit job creation.
