This is the type of reference material that every manager and entrepreneur should have on his or her desk. The book addresses most employee-employer questions that occur during daily operations and includes coverage of many major federal employment laws. Managers will appreciate the implementation guidelines provided on specific state laws and requirements in the state of Illinois. In my opinion, owning this book is like having your own employment legal counsel sitting with you at staff meetings and when addressing routine business practices.

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.

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.
