Missouri Plus

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 Missouri Plus is available. For years, the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry HR Library has helped employers and HR personnel find answers quickly. The Missouri Plus 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 Missouri Plus 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.

    Testimonials

    I really appreciate the content of the ACCR’s HR Update. In the email format, it has been great! It comes automatically and it is short and concise. If there is a topic we are interested in, it is expandable to the full article. The topics are always up to the minute and applicable. With all the P/R applicable items to deal with this last year, the articles with links have been a real time-saver. These are issues that usually take so much time to research and gather the right forms. Your articles, with links to forms or rules or sample notices have been great. They are usually posted just as it is time to start looking at those items! I have gotten to a point, where I look for each posting and read it carefully. I know is it usually going to contain a topic I will need soon.

    Marian Wallis, Accounting, Unitherm Furnace Corp. Missouri Heat Treat, A Div., Wentzville, Missouri


    It minimizes the time I spend researching issues in a number of other resources for both my internal and external clients. I have trust and confidence in the information shared.

    Karen Shannon, Human Resources Consulting Director, Ollis & Co. Business Consulting Division, Missouri


    HRsimple describes this site exactly. It is easy to navigate, straight forward information, and has reliable and diverse information. In my busy job, it is essential that I am able to access information that is trustworthy, specific to my state in a quick and simple fashion.

    Kelley Miller, Director of Human Resources, St. Louis Arc, Missouri


    These manuals are the best professional HR books that I have ever bought. If you want concise and accurate information, here it is!

    Paul Kahn, Cardinal Scale Manufacturing, Webb City, Missouri


    I love HRsimple because the humor used brightens my day yet offers valuable information on HR.

    Mary Kathryn Schomaker, Finance Director, Guardian Angel Settlement Association, Missouri


    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. 

    Dena Smith, Heartland EMS, Inc.


    This makes it easy for a small company to take care of business without hiring extra people.

    Jerry Smith, President, Powell Supply Inc., Missouri


    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.
