My husband has a small business, with 2 employees, 3 counting himself in Connecticut. He is subcontracted with one big client (doing maintenance). Unfortunately, this client is moving a big part of their business to Ohio, therefore we might need to let go of one employee, or if we can reduce the hours (parttime) until more work comes in.
I work for my husband as the office manager, doing all the paper work (account recevables, payable, and payroll, etc). As a legal entity, I am a member of the company also..
Your response was very helpful. Just need to know if it would be a good idea to have a lawyer write up a letter indicating the reasons for the reduced hours or with a letter from the employer be sufficient.
