Business Management Daily Editors Choose Their Top Five Favorite Legal Resources for HR Pros
Falls Church, Va. — Laws, laws and more laws! All you want to do is run your organization, but that means hiring employees, and hiring puts you dead in the sights of federal and state governments with all of their employment laws. Not to mention the risks from your employees themselves, who can file lawsuits that will severely damage your company if you step out of line.
“If you don’t properly comply with legal mandates, your organization could end up being stuck in a very expensive lawsuit,” says Business Management Daily’s Editorial Director Pat DiDomenico. “That’s why it’s absolutely essential for human resources professionals to stay up to date on employment laws.”
The human resources editors at Business Management Daily have chosen their top five favorite resources that they think are the most helpful for HR professionals to use regularly in order to stay current on extremely important employment laws.
Here are Business Management Daily’s editors’ five picks for their favorite legal resources for HR pros (in no particular order):
