As soon as an architectural practice hires their first employee, the firm needs to begin to consider the employment laws that govern their relationship with their employees, and how it might differ from their relationship with independent contractors. The firm should also consider which laws become applicable after a firm reaches a certain size, and evaluate the status of the practice at regular intervals. For the purposes of the ARE, we'll focus on federal laws, but remember, in practice, you'll also need to comply with the specific laws of your jurisdiction.
