Human Resources Software helps you quickly find what you need

Human resources compliance is a necessity for any business in today's legal environment.
Between the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), OSHA, sexual harassment, and antidiscrimination laws, a business that isn't aware of its HR responsibilities is headed for trouble.
When done correctly, HR compliance is a process. It's a way of defining proper individual and group behaviors, and assuring that laws and policies are understood and followed. This means you must know the laws and develop appropriate policies in relation to these laws.
We provide a comprehensive employment law library, and also include necessary forms and "How-to Guides" for difficult situations.

We found the perfect solution to our small entity HR needs with Effortless HR. The price is completely affordable, and we have enjoyed watching this dynamic company develop a very useful HR tool for small companies. We have participated with feedback on numerous occasions, and they have responded very quickly to our requests for enhancements. We outsource our payroll and have no need for an expensive full-blown HR package, but we do need to track our employees. It is so convenient to give employees personal access to their benefits, forms and company advisories, and it helps to give managers online access to their departments' employee information rather than having to come to the HR office. This has also answered our need to be able to do mass communication to employees when they evacuate for hurricanes, sometimes an annual occurrence in our area. We lost a lot of data in Hurricane Katrina, but with this online application, we will never have to worry about that, again.
