State Employment Law Compare from CCH Provides Answers for Multiple Jurisdictions Quickly

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., August 3, 2006) – Now there’s a smart, new way to accurately compare state employment laws, side-by-side. State Employment Law Compare from CCH, a leading provider of employment law and software and a part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, provides instant answers for legal professionals who have to deal with employment law questions in multiple jurisdictions (

“The pace at which state laws evolve can be dramatic,” noted Kristen Kaplan, CCH product manager. “We spend a lot of time listening to our customers’ needs. With more and more companies now employing people in multiple states, the need for an easier way to analyze and compare employment laws in one simple chart has never been greater, so CCH created State Employment Law Compare,” Kaplan added.

State Employment Law Compare is a new innovative tool that uses “Smart Chart” functionality, which lets attorneys and HR professionals choose from dozens of topics and instantly compares multiple states’ laws on those topics all at the same time on the same chart. It’s a complete Internet-based state employment law resource. It provides succinct summaries of state employment laws, regulations and executive orders, on a topic-by-topic basis, as well as the links to the full text of those laws.

Advanced “Smart Chart” Functionality

State Employment Law Compare’s intuitive interface lets users choose from dozens of topics — age discrimination, minimum wages, drug testing, time off to vote, for example. Many are further broken down into logical subtopics, such as whether voting time must be paid and possible employer sanctions for denying time off to vote.

Next, users select the states they’re interested in from a list. Then they instantly see comparative summaries of multiple states’ laws on the subject in a convenient chart format.

Users decide how many and which states they wish to compare. The search results, displayed in an intuitive matrix, include citations along with links to the full text of the corresponding law, if further research is desired.

“This is all about getting answers quickly. Instead of flipping through dozens of references or surfing multiple state web sites, State Employment Law Compare offers you a more efficient way to research employment laws across multiple jurisdictions in a matter of seconds.” Kaplan observed.

A sampling of the topics covered includes:

  • Access to personnel files
