Arizona Chamber Offers Employers Help Navigating State and Federal Employment Laws

Arizona Chamber Offers Employers Help Navigating State and Federal Employment Laws

A new guide, “Arizona Human Resources Manual,” provides employers easy-to-understand information on new and existing state and federal employment laws and regulations

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 20, 2010

Arizona employers uncertain of their responsibilities under two of the most controversial new laws in recent years – SB1070, Arizona’s immigration law and the national health care law -- can now get help from the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Both laws are addressed in a new book from the Chamber, Arizona Human Resources Manual.

The 658-page book covers everything from discipline, discrimination and termination to new laws and issues such as SB1070, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and the role of social media in hiring. The book has 71 chapters on state and federal employment laws and regulations and how they affect business owners large and small.

The book is written by attorneys Julie A. Pace and David A. Selden, employment law experts at The Cavanaugh Law Firm.

Some chapters covered in the book include: background checks, wages and hours, compensation agreements, employee agreements, sexual harassment, employee leave, resolving employee disputes, workplace investigations, unemployment compensation, worker’s compensation and employment in the internet age.

The Chamber is also offering a companion book, Model Policies and Forms for Arizona Employers, which contains 303 pages of forms, sample policies and author commentary on the difference between policies that are optional and those that are legally essential. This guide will help you create a policy manual or Employee Handbook.

Each book is available for $150 each or both books may be purchased for $240. These guides come with a digital download, complete with a searchable database and the ability to customize and print all forms and policies. As an ongoing resource, you will receive a weekly e-newsletter, HR Update, which provides the latest on employment law changes and other human resource issues.
