HR Compliance for Small Business

No matter the size of the business, it is important for owners to be aware of the laws that govern hiring, employing and terminating workers. It only takes one disgruntled employee to bring suit against an employer for a practice which may not match the standards for compliance in today's work world.

There is a website (which we've added to our favorite links to the right of this blog) we would like to pass on to small business owners, and anyone, for that matter, interested in finding out more about things like:

  • developing a policy and procedures manual
  • sexual harassment and discrimination
  • payroll management
  • privacy policy guidelines
  • developing job descriptions and interview questions
  • etc.

You can also sign up to receive free and informative e-mail newsletters, such as "Employment Law Today." There is access to free reports, free HR forms, the HR Soapbox Blog and many HR links.

The website,, belongs to The Alexander Hamilton Institute. In the AHI Store, there are many good products we have used in our SBDC, as well as recommended to others. Our favorite pick is The Complete Policy Handbook, which we use in our offices to assist clients in constructing HR manuals and guidelines. Because of its very fair price ($97.50) most smaller companies can afford the CD--a small price to pay to make sure their operations are litigation-proof.

Check out all of their other products and tools, all very reasonable, and the training sessions offered.
