at Maryland Chamber of Commerce, Annapolis, Maryland
I have found that the online version of the Classic HR Library available on HRSimple.com is a great tool and easy to navigate. I have chosen to use this tool in place of other on line resources that I subscribe to. The information has been easy to find and accurate.

at Bel-Art Products, Pocomoke City, Maryland

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.
