Human Resources Advice

Human Resources Advice

Human resources (known as “HR”) typically involves tasks such as recruitment, hiring, training, policy-making, conflict management, discipline, administration of benefits, etc.

Depending on the size of your business, you might have a dedicated HR staff or a single HR practitioner – or you (or another employee) might take on these duties yourself.

Ertl Lawyers works closely with human resource professionals, managers, and owners to make sure they handle employee relations the right way.

David Ertl has been a trusted advisor to employers for 20 years, be it corporations, non-profits, partnerships, or sole proprietor ships.
