Employment law

"Legal Topics for HR Professionals" lays out and discusses a number of different federal, state, and local employment laws that human resources (HR) professionals must know. It’s also hard to stay up to date with legal matters when employment laws are constantly changing and forcing you to adapt your business practices or policies accordingly, but it’s also essential for any business.

Employment laws protect employees’ rights and create fair working conditions. They’re also your employer’s legal responsibility, which means that ensuring compliance is a crucial function of HR.
