Do I Need Proof Before Beginning an Employee Investigation?

Evil HR Lady

An employee recently came forward with an accusation that two other employees were selling and buying drugs in the company parking lot.

All I can add to this true wisdom by a truly valiant woman, one who has championed human rights her entire life, is that I wholly agree with her. This quote was transmitted by Gloria G.

Maternity leave and paternity leave are great. Sometimes it’s required, if your employee qualifies for FMLA, and sometimes it’s something your company does to help retain great employees.

Stress Management 101: How to Keep Your HR or Employee Relations Role from Draining You

Father’s Day

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: he believed in me.”. – Jim Valvano. All dads know the truth: being a father is all about giving.

“How do kids spell ‘love’? – Unknown.
