"Whether you're a human resources professional or a harried manager in another area - juggling policy and people issues along with the duties of your "real job" - there's a lot of HR-related information you need to know. If you lack that information, or misunderstand it, you and your organization could end up in a lot of trouble." "What you need is an expert you can call upon any time - and that's what you'll find in this book. In fact, you'll find two experts. One is an attorney with a corporate background who specializes in employment law. The other is a recruiter and former HR manager with strong experience in every aspect of the field. Together, Shawn Smith and Rebecca Mazin are here to help you navigate the tricky and ever-changing terrain of people management. Better yet, they do it in plain English." "Written in question-and-answer format, this essential reference book addresses more than 200 areas of concern. It gives you a crash course in all the key areas: employee selection, policies, performance management, training, employee relations and retention, compensation, benefits, major employment laws, termination, and tough stuff such as e-mail monitoring and workplace violence."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
