Managing people is a tricky businessâ€”and managers and small business owners can no longer get by without understanding the essentials of human resources.Â Â New questions abound. In our increasingly legal-minded age, how much documentation do we need to keep on each employee? Whatâ€™s the best way to confront complicated personnel issues, and even workplace violence?
