Corporate America spends millions of dollars every year to ensure that their employment policies and practices are cutting edge. They hire teams of full-time Human Resources professionals and corporate attorneys to keep their business safe from attack. Smaller companies, however, don't typically have that luxury.

Instead, it's the untrained Office Manager who finds him or herself handling the HR functions and responsibilities that no one else wants or has time for -- recruiting and onboarding new employees, creating employee files, writing job descriptions, developing policies, or monitoring benefits. Even with the best intentions, the Office Manager could very well be setting up the company for trouble. And then one day, the owner or a senior manager attends an attorney-lead seminar which causes him to be extremely concerned about the complexities and potential dangers of not complying with federal and state labor codes.

And that's were I come in.
