Living our why, one million times over.
Eight years ago, I left my law practice to become the company’s CEO on what I thought would be a temporary basis. I didn’t expect to be so moved by hearing the challenges and dreams of small businesses all across the country. Seeing firsthand how our HR and compliance expertise and our platform gives our clients peace of mind gave me a new sense of purpose.
Our clients are why Mineral exists. They’re the reason why I chose to make my CEO role permanent. And now, eight years later, I’m incredibly proud that we’ve earned the trust of so many businesses nationwide.
Every single client is one in a million to us. No matter how big we grow, we’re committed to supporting them every step of the way.
A million reasons to celebrate: here’s Mineral by the numbers.
Delivering a millennium of expertise to 1 million clients.

2015: Supreme Court affirms the Affordable Care Act
President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law in March 2010. Multiple states mounted legal challenges almost immediately to strike major provisions of the law and the law in its entirety. However, in 2015 (and again in 2021) the Supreme Court held that ACA would stand. Employers met the moment at every turn, achieving compliance with the law on the state and federal level.

In Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution extends the right to marry to same-sex couples—a landmark decision that gave new civil rights to millions of Americans.

2020-2022: Remote and hybrid work become hallmarks of the post-COVID world
While only a third of US employees worked remotely in 2019, that number more than doubled to 73% just a few months later at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. In the years that followed, employers wrestled with vaccine and mask mandates, return-to-office strategies, and reconfiguring remote or hybrid work models.

2022: Supreme Court strikes down Roe v. Wade
The Supreme Court upended nearly 50 years of legal precedent in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which reversed the reproductive health rights and protections under the Court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade. The decision left employers to revisit and rework health benefits, leave policies, and more in achieving compliance with new state laws triggered by the ruling.
