In 1925, Florida was entirely different. There were no major league sports teams and no scenic U.S. Highway 1.
There was, however, a law firm in West Palm Beach that believed in something exceptional. As Florida’s law firm for business, Gunster set out to provide sound legal advice and then some: to work with clients as partners. To devise better strategies and minimize risk. To help companies build value.
Over 90 years later,...read more
Today, Florida’s economy is rebounding at a pace that has other states looking to us for leadership. Our state is growing by more than 1,000 net new people a day, we are the third most populous state in the nation welcoming more than 105 million visitors each year, nearly one in 10 U.S. jobs in 2015 were created in Florida, education reforms continue to help close achievement gaps, and our unemployment rate — once at historic heights of more than 11 percent — has continued to remain below the national average.
And while many would have you believe our state’s successes come from only our sunshine and beaches, at the Florida Chamber we know firsthand that our state continues to move forward thanks, in part, to a united business community that believes in free enterprise, believes in private-sector job creation and fights for a stronger Florida.
In fact, our efforts to make Florida a... learn more
HRsimple is the latest update to the Florida Employment Law Manual, which has been a part of the Florida Chamber and helping Florida employers manage their most important resource – their employees – for more than 25 years.
Mark Wilson, President and CEO, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Tallahassee, Florida
I have used your books for over 10 years now, and they have always helped me tremendously as an accurate and trustworthy reference tool.
Carla M. Butts, PHR, Human Resources Manager, Hospice of Citrus County, Beverly Hills, Florida
I enjoy the fact that I can use the ACCR Human Resources Manual to find quick answers to the plethora of complicated employment laws and regulation without having to search the Internet. Having this information at my fingertips makes life much easier.
Shane Brown, MS, HAS, Assistant Administrator, Sterling-Rock Falls Clinic, Sterling, Florida
The publications that you provide allow us to keep up to date on the latest best practices. In our busy lives it’s refreshing to go to a resource that you can trust.
Rosanna Matucan-Carson, SPHR, GPHR , Manager, Human Resources , Bausch & Lomb, Clearwater, Florida
As an HR professional, I rely on resources to provide me with accurate and up to date information. In 2010, as a new resident to the state of Florida, I needed to have a resource guide to bring me up to speed on Florida’s laws. I found the Florida Employment Law Manual very useful. The Florida Employment Law Manual became a tool that I found myself referring to as my first point of reference. The manual made my transition to Florida and its laws an easy transition.
Danylle Reynolds, Human Resources Director, ResCare, Florida
I like your books because they are written in layman terms, are well laid out, and are a terrific reference too. I primarily use the Florida Employment Law Manual. To date I have not had a topic or issue that I could not find in the book.
Donna Schultz, PHR, Human Resources Director, ICx Imaging Systems, Apopka, Florida
It is seldom the time in my professional career I come across great products, great customer service and fabulous personalities. I have ordered your books as resources and reference materials for the last four years and have been a great information tool for our agency. HR Simple Online Tool has been filled with informative resources, legal and current descriptions and forms that are updated every year depending on the governmental or DOL’s rules and changes. Recently, I had the fun-filled experience of speaking to your staff and spoke with Paula who knows HRsimple very well and assisted me with the information I was looking for.
Zoraida Seguinot, Human Resources Manager, Human Resources & Risk Management, Florida
I have been using the Florida Employment Law Manual for several years and have been extremely pleased with the ease of use and the time that it saves. I keep the book on my desk and it is usually worn out before time to renew. The Florida Employment Law Manual and the Model Policies and Form for Florida Employers are and will remain a number one source of information for me.
Sharon Jones, Human Resources Director, The City of Palmetto, Palmetto, Florida
hrsimple.com is a must-have not only for HR professionals in the state, but for labor and employee relations professionals, employment lawyers and small business owners. It is comprehensive in scope, addressing the many legal and compliance issues that face employers from recruiting to retirement. Yet, despite the wide range of issues covered, and the complexity of those issues, information is easy to find and comprehend, avoiding much of the legal-speak that can often be difficult to interpret.
John A. Challenger, Chief Executive Officer, Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., Chicago, Illinois
Our company does not have an official Human Resources Department. I have what is known as *hands on* H.R. training. Your human resource publications have guided me through many issues such as I-9, FMLA and policy book. The money I spend for the publications each year have more than paid for themselves.
Keith W. Brown, VP Marketing and Human Resources, S&S Food Stores, Lake City, Florida
I have been in Human Resources for over 30 years. "Performance Management Strategies: Finding Common G.R.O.U.N.D." was one of the best presented, arranged, and informative webinars I have ever participated in. I wish my whole crew of supervisors and managers could have participated in it. However, with the information I received and the way it was laid out, I hope that I will be able to mock the presentation for them. You and Jamie did an excellent job in presenting this in a clear, distinctive way that was interesting and was never boring.
