Critical HR Information for Churches
As many of you may have noticed, the world of Employment Law-or the law governing how you interact with your church staff- is ever-changing with the new administration. Even though I deal with Human Resource topics daily, I still find myself behind the learning curve of current HR events.
On April the 2nd, my company, SourcePointe of Alabama-a Human Resources Outsourcing company- provided its clients a Lunch and Learn on the various topics of today’s hectic HR scene. As a benefit, I am passing along this information to you as a courtesy and investment into your ministry. With all of the changes, I want to first be sure you are protected.
