Useful Links

We’ve included some links with useful HR information for small employers.  Please note that we are not affiliated in any way with any of the following entities, and we are not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of the contents of their sites.

There are many other websites dealing with employment issues. We haven’t reviewed all of them; these are the ones we’ve found (and found useful) so far. If there’s one you think we should add, drop us a note and let us know!

If you find a broken link (as happens all too often, given how quickly things change on the internet), please email us to let us know. Thanks!

These sites give general information. If you have questions regarding a legal or tax matter specific to your business, we recommend you seek advice from an attorney, accountant, or other appropriate professional.
