HR for Small Business: An Essential Guide for Managers, Human Resources Professionals, and Small Business Owners (Paperback)
"One of the few references geared to the bulk of American business." - Booklist
HR For Small Business explains in simple, clear language what business owners and managers need to know about their relationship with their employees in order to comply with the law and protect themselves and their business from being sued.
The new edition of this book includes everything from recruiting and hiring to discipline and termination and everything in between. Updated legal information has been added on the new minimum wage law that employers must be aware of, the right to privacy for employees, especially in terms of their email, Internet usage, and phone calls, and what employers need to do to comply with disability laws and FMLA.
The appendices in this book include required postings in the workplace, legal holidays, online resources for employers and human resource professionals, a sample employee handbook outline, an employer tax calendar, and a complete glossary of terms.
