The HR Law Weekly

Dear HR Professional:

I was talking with a friend of mine recently – a prominent employment lawyer. During our conversation, I asked him what an hour with a top HR attorney might cost. He gave me the usual your-mileage-may-vary disclaimer, and then named a figure.

"You'd be hard-pressed to find one for under $400.00 an hour," he said. He then added that, in his city, they generally cost $500.00 an hour or more. Five hundred dollars!

Yet even that may be a bargain. The average jury verdict in an employment lawsuit is close to ONE MILLION DOLLARS – and employers lose about 65% of the time a case goes to trial. Add in the cost of settlements … lost productivity … shattered morale … and it's clear that legal fees only scratch the surface of the true cost of a lawsuit.

When it comes to lawsuits, even when you win, you lose. And there seems to be an endless stream of savvy attorneys (for current AND former employees) waiting to pounce on the slightest error of commission or omission – on a dizzying array of federal, state and local rules.

That’s why we say the best lawsuit is the one that never gets filed. And that’s also why we’ve developed a service to help you stay out of court. Introducing The HR Law Weekly.

The HR Legal News You Need – from a Source You Trust

The HR Law Weekly is designed specifically for YOU: the busy HR pro who needs to keep your organization in compliance with ALL employment laws – but doesn’t have $500.00 lying around for a legal consultation every time you have a question.

The HR Law Weekly is really TWO valuable services in one – and at one low price. You’ll also get four free bonus gifts (more on that later).

The HR Law Weekly comes to you from the publishers of The HR Specialist, Manager's Legal Bulletin, HR Specialist: Employment Law, Payroll Legal Alert and state HR legal newsletters. We also produce webinars … conferences … CDs … books … special reports … e-letters … and online HR resources. And we’ve been doing it since 1937.

Our 80-year track record proves we’ve helped our readers in the past. But you’re more interested in the future – and that’s where The HR Law Weekly can help you.

Here’s how your service works:

1. The HR Law Weekly

Every Wednesday, you’ll receive The HR Law Weekly: a 4-page briefing on the latest developments in employment law today. You’ll instantly be brought up-to-speed on the case law, legislation and regulatory changes that could spell big trouble for you – IF you’re unaware of them.

Click on the sample issue of The HR Law Weekly. You’ll find:
  • A review of the top 5 employment law risks for this year – some you may be aware of, and others that could blindside you!

Is The HR Law Weekly Right for You?

The HR Law Weekly is not a substitute for an attorney. If you get sued, you need a lawyer. But the advice and case studies found in The HR Law Weekly and Employment Law might just help you AVOID having to hire a lawyer – and if that’s the case, this service pays for itself hundreds of times over.

If you’ve read this far, chances are you’re starting to see the value of The HR Law Weekly. But if you’re still on the fence, try this little exercise: Think about what an employee lawsuit would cost you. Figure in your time … your staff’s time … and how many billable attorney hours you’d need.

Write down the dollar figure in the margin. If that number is greater than the cost of half an hour of a lawyer’s time – and I guarantee it is – then The HR Law Weekly can help you in your work. And remember: There’s zero risk for you. Can you say that about your employment law problems?

My lawyer friend would be glad to welcome you as a client. But when you can get 8,760 hours of legal updates for less than the price of half an hour with a top attorney, isn’t it a much better deal for you (and me!) if I welcome you as a new subscriber to The HR Law Weekly?

Sign up today!

Sincerely,

 Phillip Ash
