HRANSWERSNOWTM From CCH Provides Expert Solutions To Common HR Questions

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 21, 2002) – Now there’s a way for human resource professionals in small and medium-sized organizations to find the answers they need to do their jobs without incurring hefty bills for outside consultants or lawyers and without engaging in hours of tedious legal research. HRAnswersNowTM from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources and employment law information and software, provides expert HR guidance in an easy-to-use format over the Internet.

HRAnswersNow is designed especially to help those with HR 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 the main topical menu. Up pops a series of questions, including "What if there are multiple garnishments or wage assignments against an employee’s wages?" Clicking on that selection brings up the easy-to-understand answer.

Fast, Expert Answers On Issues that Matter Most

HRAnswersNow covers the issues that matter most to HR professionals in small and medium-sized organizations on a day-to-day basis – topics such as recordkeeping, staffing, compensation, benefits, employee development, employee relations, discrimination and workplace safety. From the requirements of COBRA to writing job descriptions to HR’s role in mergers and acquisitions, HRAnswersNow focuses on what the professional needs to know and do to comply with legal requirements and contribute to the effectiveness of the enterprise.

HR executives and generalists will both find that HRAnswersNow speeds their workflow, with dozens of forms, checklists and other tools ready to customize and use.
