The Legal Handbook for HR Managers is an essential reference not just for managers for all those who are engaged in the HR function. It gives an easy to access bird's eye view of the bevy of regulations that an organization needs to comply with. What I like best is its simple and solution-oriented approach and the inclusion of all requisite templates.

I found it very easy to read and understand. It has a complete life-cycle covered for HR, right from entry to exit.

This Handbook enabled us making informed recruitment and hiring decisions, as well as a context for company guidelines and policies.
One of the most important characteristics of this HR Handbook I found is the ability to get organized, which includes strong time management skills and the ability to complete task efficiently.

The role of HR manager must be parallel with the needs of developing and changing organization,from my point of view an HR professional must be,
* a strategic partner
* an employee supporter or advocate and
* a change mentor
to inculcate these roles we should have clear cut knowledge relating to the entire aspects of HR functions.
So, "This is the knowledge base; A Legal Hand Book for HR Managers"
Just go with it !!!
