California Continuing Education, Inc presents

AVOID STARTUP HARASSMENT - with Attorney Curt Harrington 

Barnes & Noble, Events area, 6326 East Pacific Coast Highway, Long Beach, CA

"The assistance and direction given by organizations that purport to "guide" entrepreneurs and startups falls short of providing requisite survivability to founding owners. Governments (local and federal) dispatch their tax organizations to tell new businesses to pay, how to obey and comply. They dispatch their labor departments to tell new businesses who they can hire and when they can operate, what wages they have to pay, and what overtime rules apply. Cities, counties, and states have devised all manner of permits, licenses, fees, rules, regulations and other inhibitive barriers to entry. These rules and barriers disfavor startups and place all businesses in a much more precarious position than they otherwise would be. No government organizations tell startups how to protect their own financial interests."
