Advocacy, Access, and Leadership


As The Voice of Maine Business, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the Maine Human Resources Library. 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, from job descriptions through termination and beyond. Each includes practical advice on what should be done, solid advice on how to do it, and a complete explanation of why it is important.

This Maine Human Resources Library was not written as a response to employee-related problems, but to help you avoid them. The guidelines and checklists will make that easier, and the examples and step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to know that you are on solid ground.

This manual is part of a series of publications prepared exclusively for Maine employers and made available by the Maine State Chamber of Commerce in a continuing effort to provide reliable and practical information for our members and the Maine business community.
