Often smaller businesses do not enjoy the luxury of a fully staffed HR department - it's usually an owner, vice president, office manager or sometimes an HR person. When challenging HR related issues arise, Benefits Essentials can be a vital resource to find your answer. With Benefit Essentials, you can quickly find information on a wide variety of topics. In many cases there are even sample templates in the Microsoft Word format that can be used as a starting point (COBRA & HIPAA forms, hiring and termination letters, etc.).
