Iowa Human Resources Manual

Keeping up with federal and state employment regulations is complex work for any business -- but good human resources guidance can help employers steer clear of costly lawsuits. Fortunately, the Iowa Human Resources Manual is available. For years, the Iowa Association of Business and Industry HR Library has helped employers and HR personnel find answers quickly. The Iowa Human Resources Manual is a comprehensive, plain English resource that helps you manage employees from pre-hire through post-termination. Written in plain English, it is authored by top labor lawyers, so you know you can trust the guidance. The Iowa Human Resources Manual Compliance Library allows users to download and customize hundreds of policies and forms; maintain proper employee personnel files; and create or bolster your employee handbook. When a federal or state labor law or regulation changes, the library is updated -- and you'll receive an e-mail notice so you can easily determine what, if any, changes you need to make. Extra bonus include the HR Update (a weekly newsletter with news and trends) and hrsimple.com webinars worth credit towards SHRM-CP/SCP and HRCI certifications.
