New Internet Service Launched to Help Employers Minimize Worker Legal Liability
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- A Northern California HR consulting group has announced the official launch of sharedHR, a low-cost, easy-to-use Internet subscription service aimed at helping human resource professionals better run their departments while minimizing employment liability.
Worker legal liability has become a big headache for many companies. More than 450 employee-related lawsuits are filed every day, according to government surveys, so the legal liability threat is a serious one for businesses large and small.
"Employment liability is one of the foremost risks facing every employer. Employers can reduce the potential for legal action from workers by implementing sound employment policies and practices," said Paul Finkle, sharedHR co-founder and CEO. "SharedHR can help businesses avoid practical and legal missteps."
Findle said that sharedHR has prepared a library of several hundred online forms and documents plus checklists, guidelines, procedures and tutorials in HR department best practices.
Several major law firms under contract to sharedHR review all forms and documents to make certain they comply with the latest changes in federal and state regulations. SharedHR also works closely with other experts, such as accountants and insurance brokers, to make sure their site reflects the latest trends in HR administration.
The sharedHR subscription service is ideal for companies with 50 to 3000 employees and for HR managers who want to focus on strategic issues instead of getting bogged down in routine tasks.
The site covers everything needed for HR managers-from the employment application to the exit interview. Veteran HR experts have built the site to save time as well as money. For example, sharedHR's online employee handbook would require HR managers months and thousands of dollars to create on their own.
The site offers a number of user-friendly features for subscribers:
- There is no costly software to purchase, install and maintain since
the service is delivered through the Internet. If needed, sharedHR
subscribers can call for HR and technical support-a service that is
included in the subscription price.
- Company executives, managers and employees can access confidential
HR information 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any computer
connected to the Internet.
- Within minutes HR managers can generate on-the-fly reports about
their companies' workforce, such as benefits, hiring, salary and
- SharedHR's service is available in all 50 states, ideal for
businesses that have to manage employees in more than one state.

Sharing best practice documents and processes has allowed WEA Consulting clients to manage everyday HR tasks without adding overhead, and use of the site proved very popular from the get-go.
