Welcome to the HR Solutions library: HR Solutions
This program is designed to get you answers to HR law questions efficiently and easily --- answers to questions that you need to answer to manage legally on a day-to-day basis. You use HR Solutions to get prompt, practical guidance to every legal issue that can arise in the HR function - - - from recruiting and selection to post-termination.

Testing - Administering tests, especially before hire, is a valuable tool. Yet testing can generate discrimination claims. What makes them legal?
