Dear Outdoor Business Owners
Dear outdoor business owners, Are you curious about the legal aspects of running your business? Legal considerations are often overlooked, but it’s important to keep them in mind to mitigate your risk. Here are some legal considerations you should keep in mind: Liability: As an outdoor business, you may face more risks compared to indoor businesses. It’s important to have adequate liability insurance to protect your business from lawsuits and claims. A well-drafted liability waiver can also help. Permits and licenses: Depending on your location and the type of outdoor business you have, you may need permits and licenses to operate legally. Make sure to research and obtain all necessary permits and licenses. Employment laws: Make sure you’re not misclassifying independent contractors who should be employees. If you have employees, it’s important to ensure that you’re following all employment laws, such as minimum wage, overtime pay, and a solid vacation policy. Don’t let legal concerns hold you back from running a successful outdoor business. We can help you take the necessary steps to protect your business and stay compliant. At Basecamp Legal, we love playing outside and nerding out on the legal aspects of outdoor business. Check out this photo from a recent firm outing to A-Basin.
