Largest Human Resources Subscription Website - HR.BLR.com

Old Saybrook, CT – May 12, 2005 – Human Resource managers now have an even easier-to-use version of Business & Legal Reports, Inc.’s popular state HR compliance website. Version 6 of HR.BLR.com has just launched, which features easier and more powerful navigation, practical analysis documents, and a dynamic new question and answer tool.

Bob Brady, BLR founder and President, commented on the new site, which is the largest paid subscription destination in the human resources field: “This completely updated HR website delivers a number of significant improvements asked for by our customers. They told us they wanted better navigation, a cleaner look, lots more tools, and quick help answering the complicated questions that challenge human resource managers every day.” Brady continued, “We’re very pleased to offer this new solution to the challenging problem of state HR compliance.”

Improvements include the addition of BLR’s powerful “Site Navigator” feature, which allows users to easily research using three fields simultaneously – HR topic, jurisdiction, and document type. This intuitive tool means users save hours of research with fast access to detailed analysis on over 200 topics, from absenteeism to workers compensation, and the ability to choose state or federal jurisdiction for each. And at each step of the way they get 1-click access to PowerPoint™ meetings, quizzes, checklists, forms, and policies, all drawn from BLR’s rich library.

Another key feature is BLR’s exciting new InstantHRAnswers™ tool, which allows subscribers to simply type in an HR question and get an instant answer. This breakthrough service uses proprietary search technology linked to BLR’s extensive HR content. Early users are finding it a cost-effective replacement to calling a lawyer or consultant, or plowing through confusing state labor regulations.

BLR is offering free trials of HR.BLR.com at the website. And as an introductory gift to human resource managers, the firm is offering a free download of a Special Report on one of the most-questioned HR regulations of all time, “Top 100 FLSA Overtime Q & As” at http://www.blr.com/82008400/PRS14
