With the current state of the economy, many smaller employers are looking at reductions-in-force, worker furloughs, and creative solutions for reducing labor costs–one of the biggest expense lines on the P&L. With that said, it is frightening as an HR professional the number of small businesses that simply “don’t know what they don’t know” about legal compliance. These days all it takes is one disgruntled employee to file a complaint with the EEOC or the DOL to create a financial nightmare for an employer.
Recently, I had an HR Director attend one of my human resource workshops–and her primary reason for attending was to learn “how not to get sued” when they have to downsize–again. Well, her employer (a car dealership) at least sent her to a class to get some of the do’s and don’ts of managing employees today. It’s a start–but it’s not enough.
So, what is HR Assist? HR Assist is a great way for employers to get the HR expertise and guidance they need–at a price that is affordable for small business. HR Assist is a flat-fee consulting service based on the size of employee population. The smaller the company, the lower the cost for HR help. What kind of HR help, you say? It’s short-term, senior-level HR support for employee relation issues such as how to handle a downsizing.
