In our highly regulated employment environment with legislation covering virtually every aspect of employment from recruitment to termination, employee headcount is irrelevant. All employers regardless of their size are faced with the same obligations, increasing legislative demands and greater regulatory compliance posing increased risk and an ever greater burden on their administrative and management resources.
