Business Laws and Regulations

Small businesses are subject to various state and local laws and regulations related to employment, intellectual property, insurance, and other matters. The type and scope of your business will generally determine which laws and regulations are applicable. And if you do business across state lines, or even in multiple counties, you may be subject to multiple sets of laws. This section provides information and links to government resources to help entrepreneurs comply with business laws and regulations at all levels of government -- local, state and federal.
