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

    Your books and newsletters have helped me to run our company more efficiently. Our 150 employees and I appreciate your guidance by keeping us on the right track.

    Gary Albright, President/CEO, Becker Tire & Treading Inc., Kansas, Great Bend


    I am a HUGE fan of HRsimple! It is so easy to navigate and find the answer to my questions in the matter of a couple of clicks. I wear multiple hats for my employer and being responsible for Human Resources, Safety and Accounting I prefer to spend my time answering questions, not looking for them.

    HRsimple makes my job easier; therefore, I love it, love it, love it!!!

    Lynn Durost, HR/Accounting Manage, Rubb, Inc, Sanford, Maine


    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.
