Human Resources Training Guide

This introduction to Human Resource Management is a Human Resources Training Guide that provides background information and a review of HR management concepts, structure, standards and definitions. The subject is dynamic. Federal, state, and local labor related laws and their interpretation are constantly under review.

Generally, the review process for labor laws is through the courts, which have the jurisdiction to hear and decide on these cases. Additionally, the very nature of a business itself, relative to its size and mission, will dictate the level of Human Resource Management and the structure and application of Policies & Procedures.

This Human Resources Training Guide provides background information on Human Resource (HR) Management for small to mid-size companies and serves as a primer to explain the basic concept of managing personnel, functional structure, legal requirements, definitions, and more:
