This book serves as a helpful reference for current, and those considering becoming, owners of small or mid-sized businesses. This handbook provides easy-to-read, brief, and direct answers to common workplace situations involving employees. Yes, more details could be included or situations really expanded upon; however, the author knows that readers of this book, generally, do not have the time to read a treatise. They need immediate and clear answers. For those detailed answers, they should contact a professional human resources consultant. And, when such expertise is needed, then, more detailed answers and actual assistance can be received. The author can suggest persons to contact as well as provide that kind of assistance, too; the end of this book gives that kind of information.
