Welcome to HR Compliance Notebook!

The HR Compliance Experts team is excited to launch our blog, HR Compliance Notebook, with something we’re calling Fridays with Frank.  In my Fridays with Frank posts, I’ll share news and updates regarding state and federal legislation, regulatory information, links to employment-related articles, and maybe even a snarky comment or two.

Thanks for spending a small part of your day with me!  Continue reading
