Get answers to questions like:

  • I know there have been some labor law updates, how does that affect my organization?  What do I need to do about it?

  • I have an employee who keeps disappearing on me and dropping the ball.  I'm thinking about firing them but I'd much rather work on the relationship.  What can I do?

  • My employee keeps asking for time off.  I feel like it's not fair to the other employees.  How can I create a policy that both cares for my staff and also sets fair standards?

  • I just got a report that I think might be sexual harassment.  What do I do about it?

  • My employee was injured at work.  How do I do a worker compensation claim?

  • I think I'm clear about what I want my employee to do, but they keep messing things up.  How do I fix this?

  • I think I need to fire someone or lay them off, but I'm not sure if I should do it.  Can we talk about my options?

  • I want to add medical, dental, visions, 401(k), 403(b), or other benefits.  How do I do that?  Is it the best option for me?

  • My employee quit without notice.  What do I do now?

  • I've heard about Cost of Living Increases.  What are those?  Does it make sense for my organization to do one?

First dibs on Candice when she has capacity for larger projects like compensation planning, organizational design, workload planning, handbook writing and updates, harassment investigation, succession planning, and calculating missed wages, to name a few.

A sense of security knowing that you have a thought partner who has seen the worst of the world of employment and is here to help YOU when things get tough

Candice is a wonderful listener, and to say that she does HR really sells her short.  She does so much more than that.
