Modern HR is way beyond “personnel management.” Today’s HR Professionals have to navigate a modern minefield of legal compliance issues just to hire, train and manage employees. HotlinkHR provides the most comprehensive state-of-the-art HR and compliance solution for today’s companies.


Forces Best HR Practice

Training and guidelines are useless if they are not complied with. Employers have neither the time nor inclination to ensure compliance with ever-changing requirements. HotlinkHR automates the required procedures in a step-by-step method that guides the correct process.

HotlinkHR is regularly updated in response to legislative and regulatory changes. HotlinkHR is the only provider to offer such a comprehensive compliance service through an automated process.

Modern Regulatory Compliance

HotlinkHR automates the required procedures in easy-to-learn program that guides the correct process for legal compliance and HR best practices through the entire employment life cycle.

Employers are required to comply with a myriad of local, state and federal employment regulations. These regulations are difficult to understand, poorly communicated by the regulatory agencies and continually changing. Compliance presents a confusing and overwhelming task for operations. The cost of non-compliance continues to rapidly escalate in both punitive fines and employee litigation settlements. The challenge is especially exacerbated during economic downturns due to increase in employee litigation.

Free Updates & Support

The program is regularly updated free of additional charge.

As regulations change, HotlinkHR automatically updates polices, forms, documents and processes. Live Technical Support is always free as is Online Training. Training is provided through live online web sessions where you work directly with an experienced trainer to make sure that your training needs are met.
