The 2017 New Jersey Plus HR Library includes three books and online access to the New Jersey Human Resources Manual, Hiring Firing and Discipline Manual, plus the Wages and Hours — An Employer's Guide.  This package is your one-stop guide for answers to your questions.  It features necessary forms, sample policies and commentary so you know what to do, how to do it, and why. When your employees know your rules and expectations, you limit miscommunication and keep things running smoothly.

These three publication will help you answer questions such as:

  • Do I need to grant paid time off for jury duty?
  • Have I followed the proper steps to enable me to withhold a portion of your employees' wages?
  • Do I pay required overtime compensation to non-exempt employees, which can include salaried employees?
  • What paperwork must be filled out for family and medical leave?
  • What should I include in my bereavement leave policy?
  • Is my business covered by the Pregnancy Leave Act?
  • Do I need a lactation policy?
  • Should I document your employees’ performance?
  • Should I distribute standards of conduct to your employees?
  • Do I retain for three years each employee’s name, address, date of birth, occupation, rate of pay and compensation?
  • Am I required to allow employees access to their personnel files? 
  • Do I verify that your leased or temporary employees are paid in compliance with the wage and hour laws?
  • Do you have a space (or can you create a temporary space) that is private and shielded from view for employees to express breast milk?
  • Plus hundreds of other crucial topics!

Keeping up with employment regulations is complex work for any business.  But good human resources guidance can help employers steer clear of added risk and costly lawsuits.  For years, the New Jersey Plus HR Library has helped employers and HR personnel find answers quickly.  This is a comprehensive guide to help employers -- from pre-hire through termination.  

Written by top New Jersey attorneys, the New Jersey Plus HR Library features:

  • Three hard copy books and online access to the New Jersey Human Resources Manual, Hiring Firing and Discipline Manual, plus the Wages and Hours — An Employer's Guide. 
  • Access to HR Update, a weekly e-newsletter that lets you know what's new in the HR world every week.
  • Free access to HRsimple webinars, where attorneys simplify complex Human Resources topics and help you deal with them.

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.
