More people are working from home than ever before, with 12% of workers fully remote, and 28% hybrid. In total, more than 4.7 million people work remotely at least half of the time in the United States. And though the ever-growing remote workforce presents businesses with an incredible opportunity to hire talent from anywhere, it also comes with some serious challenges.
Companies that hire workers in multiple states take on new responsibilities they didn’t have to worry about before, like staying compliant with employment laws that vary significantly from state to state. With hundreds of updates in employment laws happening across the country each year, achieving compliance becomes even more complex.
Even for businesses with in-house counsel, navigating the intricacies of diverse and constantly evolving employment laws can feel insurmountable—but we have great news. Technology can help support your team in dramatic new ways to reduce costs, save time and resources, and ensure compliance across the nation.
From a lawyer’s point of view, why do companies need SixFifty?
Ryan Parker is Chief Legal Officer at SixFifty and leads the team of lawyers who create the legal tools, so he knows the ins and outs of the products like no one else. As a lawyer himself, Parker notes that businesses have countless legal tasks. Some of those complex tasks call for the expertise of an attorney, but many of the more routine tasks don’t. Attorneys are really great at building complex, multi-layered tools—like chandeliers. But sometimes, you just need a lightbulb to provide clarity and get the job done.
This is where SixFifty comes in. By automating routine legal tasks, like employment and separation agreements, NDAs, and website privacy notices, SixFifty makes legal documents far more affordable and convenient, without sacrificing quality.
Rather than spending hours drafting the basic framework for a routine legal document, lawyers or HR teams can spend just a few minutes answering a series of questions. The final product is a customized legal document tailored to their business needs—plus ongoing updates as the law changes.
“With thoughtful automation, businesses of all sizes have access to world-class legal services.”
“With thoughtful automation, businesses of all sizes have access to world-class legal services,” Parker said. That means HR teams can tackle the tasks that would otherwise be handled by outside legal professionals or in-house counsel.
The result? Scalable, top-tier legal expertise for any company (and any budget).
How does SixFifty benefit lawyers and small businesses?
Not only does Parker oversee the development of legal products at SixFifty—he also leads the team of GCs for the company. And because SixFifty uses its own products to serve the company, Parker gets to experience firsthand how SixFifty changes the game for busy, overburdened lawyers.
“As a small company of 40 employees, we perfectly fit the demographic of our target market,” Parker said. “I use our products every day to make my job easier. It’s fun for me to see that our tools really are an immense help to in-house counsels and small businesses a like.”
