As you develop your employee benefits program, it is vitally important to understand the laws, featured in this section, which can potentially impact your program, including Health Care Reform, COBRA (if your company has 20 or more employees), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (if your company has 50 or more employees).
The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), more commonly known as Health Care Reform, implements sweeping changes that affect individual and employer-sponsored health plans.
This section includes major provisions of the law affecting employers and group health plans, including dependent coverage to age 26, grandfathered plans, employer shared responsibility (“pay or play”), and SBC notice requirements.
Human resources (HR) are one of the most important “assets” of your business. The individuals who make up your organization go a long way toward driving its success, whether they are employees, managers, consultants or others. HR refers to the recruitment and management of personnel, in compliance with the law. Thus, the practice of HR requires knowledge of the laws that affect your workplace – at the federal, state and local levels. In addition to legal compliance, HR covers the art of managing your business internally. This section includes information and guidance on:
- Federal Labor Laws by Company Size
- Federal Poster Requirements
- Labor Laws and Guidelines
- Employee Recordkeeping
- Performance Reviews
- Tips for Motivating Employees and Dealing with Stress
- Employee Retention
- Health and Wellness Programs

The key to successful recruiting of new employees is the development of a systematic process for developing job descriptions, generating a pool of candidates and selecting the right candidate. This section includes information and guidance on:
- The Hiring Process
- New Hire Requirements
- How To Interview
- New Employees/Onboarding
- Sample Job Descriptions
Terminating an employee, whether for misconduct or a reduction in force, is never a pleasant task. However, at times it is a necessary part of managing a workforce. Voluntary termination by an employee through resignation or retirement may not carry the negative stigma of an involuntary termination, but it does trigger certain responsibilities for the employer.
The Forms & Policies Section features over 500 sample HR forms, policies and checklists available for downloading, customizing and printing. The range of sample HR forms covers the most important and relevant aspects of managing human resources and the employer/employee relationship including:
- Candidate Evaluation Forms

This section covers a variety of key aspects related to employee safety and wellness. The first major area of information covers the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.
The OSHA Act covers employers and their employees either directly through federal OSHA or through an OSHA-approved state program. State programs must meet or exceed federal OSHA standards for workplace safety and health.
This section covers OSHA guidelines for the following:
