The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry has released the 2009 Human Resources Library, which features two employment law how-to guides, including the Pennsylvania Human Resources Manual, authored by the attorneys at Cozen O’Connor. This first edition reflects the current state and federal employment laws, covering everything from hiring to firing (and everything in between).
“Employment litigation is a growing industry,” said Jeffrey Pasek, editor the Human Resources Manual and attorney at Cozen O’Connor law firm. “Each year, good companies find themselves in trouble because of seemingly small issues. We’ve compiled everything in one place, so nothing will be overlooked and businesses can rest easy.”
The Human Resources Manual is especially easy to use with the help of Snapshot, a five-minute HR-audit. By answering a few questions on current company policies and practices, employers and HR professionals are quickly able to target the problem spots. Page references are provided so if you don’t know an answer to a question, you can quickly find the answer. The book also comes with a CD-ROM so you can find what you’re looking for without turning a page.
Floyd Warner, President of the Pennsylvania Chamber added, “By offering these books, we are helping employers understand their responsibilities. Because the books are so easy to use, we’ve made the enormous task of staying up-to-date on employment laws incredibly simple. But what is really great about these books is it gives employers the information to be an authority on this subject – no more time wasted searching the internet for answers or waiting for a call back from a lawyer.”
The manual can be ordered online at www.accr.biz or by calling toll-free 866-439-2227. Visitors can view the table of contents and read a chapter from the book at the publisher’s website: www.accr.biz.
