New York Prime

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 York Prime is available. For years, the Business Council of New York State, Inc HR Library has helped employers and HR personnel find answers quickly. The New York Prime 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 York Prime 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

    Working in a smaller company, we do not have a separate HR department so the duties fall to me, the senior accountant. Since this is not my area of expertise, your publications are an invaluable resource providing me with up-to-date information on current HR laws and regulations. Providing sample policies and insight into current issues facing companies such as social networking are the tools I need to make sure my company is in compliance and up to date.

    Emily L. Wood, Senior Accountant/HR/IT, Temple B'rith Kodesh, Rochester, New York


    Here’s a ‘tip of the hat’ to hrsimple.com. Reminds me of the old ink blotter…you may not need it until you spill something. It’s value, however, is avoiding the spill in the first place.

    Don Alexander, CEO, Jefferson County Local Development Corporation, New York


    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.

    John A. Challenger, Chief Executive Officer, Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., Chicago, Illinois


    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.
