BLR provides Human Resource Center for Ohio Chamber of Commerce

Old Saybrook, CT, March 21, 2006 – Members of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce have a powerful new source for online human resources solutions. Developed through a partnership with Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR), Ohio Chamber members now have access to BLR’s HR Resource Center featuring powerful HR analysis and tools. The HR Resource Center is now available at the website.

Here’s what Chamber members can find at the HR Resource Center:

  • Topic Summaries – Plain-English summaries of HR topics.
  • Ohio Compliance Guides – Charts that detail Ohio compliance requirements on major workplace regulations
  • Job Descriptions – Sample, customizable, downloadable job descriptions
  • Policies – HR-related sample policies
  • Forms and Posters – Required major HR forms and posters
  • Current news and white papers – Federal and Ohio-specific

The Ohio Chamber also negotiated for its members a discounted member price for BLR’s 2006 Ohio Employment Law Guide. This practical, 1000-page manual gives a complete overview to help ensure Ohio employers’ compliance with changing federal and state employment laws, and the service includes BLR’s “Ask the Expert” hotline.

“The Chamber continuously seeks to provide its members with additional value and services,” said Bob Brady, BLR’s president and founder. “We are very excited to be a partner with the Ohio Chamber in providing valuable human resource compliance information to its members with just a click of a mouse.”

The state human resource information provided to Chamber members is selected from BLR’s subscription website for human resource professionals –, which has been providing plain-English state compliance and training tools for HR managers since 1999.
