The Founder’s Toolkit: L&E Basics for Start-Ups

 | 12 - 1 p.m. Central

Start-ups and early-stage companies face a variety of challenges as they seek to scale a new business. Join a panel of Quarles attorneys as we discuss some of the important early steps and decisions to make when onboarding and exiting employees to ensure compliance and minimize risk, including:

  • Employee or independent contractor?;
  • Preparing offer letters and other onboarding essentials; 
  • Early equity considerations;
  • Implementing and enforcing basic policies; and
  • Common missteps in employee discipline and discharge (and how to avoid them).

Continuing Legal Education:

After the program, Quarles will apply for 1.0 hours of general continuing legal education credit in U.S. jurisdictions where applicable. Quarles certifies that this activity has been approved for California Participatory MCLE credits by the State Bar of California in the amount of 1.0 general credits. Quarles is a State Bar of California MCLE approved provider.

Participants seeking CLE credit must be logged in, participating from their own device, and must complete the electronic CLE form provided in the course dashboard materials. Please be sure to include the attendance verification code that will be announced during the presentation, regardless of which jurisdiction you are licensed in. Quarles will only provide CLE credit to those who return the form with the proper code.

Anticipated Continuing Legal Education Processing Time:

Depending on the jurisdiction, the processing time for course approval is estimated to take between 2-16 weeks.


We will provide an HR Certificate of Attendance in the webinar dashboard materials for HR professionals who self-report continuing education.
