employment law information and software, provides expert HR guidance

responsibility in small and medium-sized firms.
"This is where you often find one person charged with a wide
range of HR tasks, from writing job descriptions to explaining the
401(k) plan," said Tanya Rose, marketing manager for CCH’s
human resources group. "Someone in that situation can’t spend
all day researching questions and can’t afford to pay outside
experts for advice on every new issue that comes up," she added.
HRAnswersNow guides users to the solutions they seek in an easy
to navigate, question-and-answer style. Someone who needs to know
whether some garnishments have priority over others would simply click
on "Payroll deductions, garnishment and child support" on

up the easy-to-understand answer.
