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

    HR Simple is one of the best HR Tools I have. Any question I have I type in the subject and viola there’s my answer. The weekly newsletter is very informative and there is always something included that my managers can use. Best investment for HR here.

    Kaye Holcomb, HR Manager, Tritek Fire and Security, LLC,, South Carolina

    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.

    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.
