Employment Law Essentials Manual + Update Service covers more than 100 vital HR topics, including FMLA, HIPAA, ADA and more. 

Each topic will include information such as:

  • Who is covered under the laws or regulations
  • Summary of requirements
  • Summary of applicable state laws, if any
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) - common problems that employers face
  • Illustrations of potential situations
  • Best practices for compliance or cost savings
  • Resource references - federal guidance documents, fact sheets, opinion letters and more

Update Service

  • With your included 1-year or 3-year Update Service subscription, you'll always be up to date on the latest developments concerning your manual. You'll receive updated pages for your print manual every 6 months.

It's a "must-have!"
Operating from current information is essential to avoiding penalties, fines, accidents, and injuries (just ONE incident could cost you far more than the update service). Plus, monitoring upcoming regulatory changes and implementing the latest best practices will help you make better management decisions and budget your safety and compliance dollars more effectively.

It's quick and easy!
J. J. Keller guides and manuals are 3-ring bound, so adding new or revised information (replacement pages) is as easy as popping open the binder and dropping it in.
