If you start a business that has grown to be so successful that it runs well without the owner being around.. does the owner need to continue coming to work or doing any work to keep receiving a paycheck?

Is everyone comfortable with a hands off approach? Is the manager or director completely trustworthy? What does your accountant think? The bottom line would be a question of ethics. Will the company ethics agree with the hands off approach? Often times employees become disgruntled when they feel there is a lack of leadership.
