The HR Update has been a valuable resource for me in that it provides timely updated legal information that keeps me on top of my game. There have been many times when I have forwarded the information to our President and management team to increase their awareness without having to take the time to hold a meeting.

at Abrams Airborne Manufacturing, Tucson, Arizona
Your books are so easy to read and understand. They are written in layman’s terms, which makes it easy for the HR team to apply to everyday situations. And the books are always up to date with the latest labor law information to help keep companies out of trouble.

at Arizona Mail Order Company, Tucson, Arizona
I love HRsimple, It totally helps with HR issues.

at Uptown Drug, , Arizona
This is my first job with real HR responsibilities and I have no idea where to start. Your newsletter makes me so happy, because HR is fun! But really, I appreciate the humor and insight. I want to work where you work. I have been able to rewrite our employee manual based on the rules/regulations/tips I’ve found, and I appreciate it.

I love HRsimple because it simplifies the laws and policies. I enjoy the weekly emails and the ease of finding the information online.

I LOVE the easy-to-use HR library offered online at hrsimple.com. I have used it numerous times to update our handbook, guarantee we are handling employee matters correctly, and so much more.

at , , Arizona
It’s just as it claims to be: SIMPLE! With 18 years of experience, one can imagine that I have collected some resources over the years and at this point, hauling a library of books from home to office to client site, is not efficient nor practical. With so much information in one site, I save time and energy researching, which is of great value to me. All of the material is written in plain English, not the legalese of many other so-called resources!

at HR Betty, Phoenix, Arizona
The Arizona Human Resources Manual should be on every Arizona business’ bookshelf. Our members value the manual’s easy-to-use format for answering HR questions and addressing issues that come up on a regular basis in the workplace. I recommend having the Arizona Human Resources Manual at the ready for up-to-date information to help guide your personnel matters.

at Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Phoenix, Arizona
These books have been a godsend! Although I have an extensive background in HR, these manuals provide up-to-date information on tricky subjects such as the ADA and Employee Leave guidelines. It is like having a handy *cheat-sheet* when I need to find the right answers and quickly.

at Sirona Infusion, LLC, Chandler, Arizona

hrsimple.com is a must-have not only for HR professionals in the state, but for labor and employee relations professionals, employment lawyers and small business owners. It is comprehensive in scope, addressing the many legal and compliance issues that face employers from recruiting to retirement. Yet, despite the wide range of issues covered, and the complexity of those issues, information is easy to find and comprehend, avoiding much of the legal-speak that can often be difficult to interpret.

Description

This guide walks you through the many complicated procedures associated with verifying the work authorization of your workers and maintaining a business that is in compliance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). As an employer, you are responsible for verifying that every individual on your workforce is eligible to work in the United States – that means paperwork and lots of it!

Completing the Form I-9 is a crucial step in the employment process, but one that is riddled with pitfalls for employers. Have you ever asked a question like this:

• Where do I get the I-9 form?
• Who do I submit it to?
• Which documents can be used to complete the I-9? Passports? Driver’s licenses? Do they count?
• How can I be sure that I am filling the form out correctly? 
• What if I have employees who have worked for me prior to November 6, 1986?

Failure to complete the Form I-9 correctly can lead to costly penalties. That is why this publication includes tips and tricks, forms, checklists, and more to keep you out of trouble and in compliance with the law. 

This publication also includes important information on other employment verification issues. Check out these topics if you are unfamiliar with employment verification or want to brush up on what’s important:

• Have all of your employees hired after November 6, 1986, completed I-9 Forms, and do you have the I-9 Form for each current employee?
• Do you make photocopies of the identification documents provided by your employees?
• Do you know what to do if an immigration officer has a warrant for the arrest of an employee? 
• Do you inform an employee of a Further Action Notice and give an opportunity to contest?

The HR Update has been a valuable resource for me in that it provides timely updated legal information that keeps me on top of my game. There have been many times when I have forwarded the information to our President and management team to increase their awareness without having to take the time to hold a meeting.

Your books are so easy to read and understand. They are written in layman’s terms, which makes it easy for the HR team to apply to everyday situations. And the books are always up to date with the latest labor law information to help keep companies out of trouble.

I love HRsimple, It totally helps with HR issues.

This is my first job with real HR responsibilities and I have no idea where to start. Your newsletter makes me so happy, because HR is fun! But really, I appreciate the humor and insight. I want to work where you work. I have been able to rewrite our employee manual based on the rules/regulations/tips I’ve found, and I appreciate it.

I love HRsimple because it simplifies the laws and policies. I enjoy the weekly emails and the ease of finding the information online.

I LOVE the easy-to-use HR library offered online at hrsimple.com. I have used it numerous times to update our handbook, guarantee we are handling employee matters correctly, and so much more.

It’s just as it claims to be: SIMPLE! With 18 years of experience, one can imagine that I have collected some resources over the years and at this point, hauling a library of books from home to office to client site, is not efficient nor practical. With so much information in one site, I save time and energy researching, which is of great value to me. All of the material is written in plain English, not the legalese of many other so-called resources!

at HR Betty, Phoenix, Arizona
The Arizona Human Resources Manual should be on every Arizona business’ bookshelf. Our members value the manual’s easy-to-use format for answering HR questions and addressing issues that come up on a regular basis in the workplace. I recommend having the Arizona Human Resources Manual at the ready for up-to-date information to help guide your personnel matters.

at Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Phoenix, Arizona
These books have been a godsend! Although I have an extensive background in HR, these manuals provide up-to-date information on tricky subjects such as the ADA and Employee Leave guidelines. It is like having a handy *cheat-sheet* when I need to find the right answers and quickly.

hrsimple.com is a must-have not only for HR professionals in the state, but for labor and employee relations professionals, employment lawyers and small business owners. It is comprehensive in scope, addressing the many legal and compliance issues that face employers from recruiting to retirement. Yet, despite the wide range of issues covered, and the complexity of those issues, information is easy to find and comprehend, avoiding much of the legal-speak that can often be difficult to interpret.
