Offers Up-to-date, Comprehensive Coverage

The 2005 U.S. Master Human Resources Guide provides a wide range of coverage from the basic principles and concepts of the human resources management function to in-depth discussions of important HR topics such as job performance management, workplace harassment, performance-based pay and the outsourcing of selected HR functions.

In addition, the Guide offers practical information and examples to help HR professionals prevent a variety of problems with discussions of the latest HR challenges, such as workplace violence, employment discrimination, international HR management and HR information systems. And to keep professionals current with human resources law, the Guide provides summaries of the most significant Supreme Court decisions reached in the field.

Complete with useful examples, sample forms and over 700 definitions of industry-specific terms, the Guide is an everyday resource providing comprehensive coverage of the issues that HR professionals face on a day-to-day basis.

This edition of the Guide has been updated to include the most recent cases, government studies and legislation affecting human resources management. New or expanded topics include:

  • New “white collar” overtime changes in job classifications exempt from the FLSA, including the effect of improper deductions from exempt employees’ salaries and new safe harbor provisions;
  • Expanded information on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act’s impact on human resources;
  • Additional information on the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act;
  • Updated materials on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act including covered entities, documentation requirement, authorized disclosures and required administrative actions; and
  • A review of the lexicon defining the various types of job outsourcing to other countries.

Designed for the front-line human resources professional, the CCH 2005 U.S. Master Human Resources Guide is also a useful desktop reference for attorneys, accountants, consultants and libraries.
