The Iowa Association of Business and Industry, Iowa’s oldest and largest statewide business network, is pleased to present the 2021 edition of the Iowa Human Resources Manual. We hope it will help you operate your business more efficiently and avoid the hidden pitfalls that lurk among the maze known as HR.

Targeted, timely and comprehensive, this manual is considered the cornerstone guide of the compliance library. It covers more than 30 primary topics directly related to the employment process.

This updated and revised edition of the Iowa Human Resources Manual was not written as a response to employee-related problems, but to help you avoid them. The guidelines and checklists will help make that easier and the examples, FAQ’s and step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to know that you are on solid ground.

This manual is a part of a series of publications prepared exclusively for Iowa employers and made available by ABI in a continuing effort to provide reliable and practical information for our members and the Iowa business community. This lines up beautifully with compliments our mission to enhance the competitiveness of Iowa business and industry by shaping a legislative and regulatory environment conducive to Iowa growth.
