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.
