Customer Reviews

Working in a smaller company, we do not have a separate HR department so the duties fall to me, the senior accountant. Since this is not my area of expertise, your publications are an invaluable resource providing me with up-to-date information on current HR laws and regulations. Providing sample policies and insight into current issues facing companies such as social networking are the tools I need to make sure my company is in compliance and up to date.

Here’s a ‘tip of the hat’ to hrsimple.com. Reminds me of the old ink blotter…you may not need it until you spill something. It’s value, however, is avoiding the spill in the first place.

at Jefferson County Local Development Corporation, , New York

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.

Customer Reviews

Working in a smaller company, we do not have a separate HR department so the duties fall to me, the senior accountant. Since this is not my area of expertise, your publications are an invaluable resource providing me with up-to-date information on current HR laws and regulations. Providing sample policies and insight into current issues facing companies such as social networking are the tools I need to make sure my company is in compliance and up to date.

at Temple B'rith Kodesh, Rochester, New York
Here’s a ‘tip of the hat’ to hrsimple.com. Reminds me of the old ink blotter…you may not need it until you spill something. It’s value, however, is avoiding the spill in the first place.

at Jefferson County Local Development Corporation, , New York

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.
