Where do you find state-specific information for drafting handbook addendums? I’m moreso looking for a summary basically of what is required to be in a handbook per state and not having much luck.

Employee handbooks are not required by any state per se. There are only policies that must be followed. Try searching for mandatory policies for your state.


I work with our lawyer for any state specific requirements

Agree. We also do this. Specific requirements could be tricky so it's important to consult a lawyer.

I used the state website - that helped me significantly!

(3) Any idea till when WFH will last? Thanks 🙏

Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗


Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. A few more weeks of pushing and then it's another break for Christmas & New Years. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.

First time poster here!

After spending 4 years as a mid-level ops manager, I tried to break into HR through talent acquisition. Now after 6 years in TA, I've had a hard time getting out of it. My goal was always to get into a more broad HRBP position, but I've since worked for smaller orgs without a solid HR career path. When I ask about my career goals, they keep telling me, "Soon!" Or "Maybe in 6 months!"

I'm testing SPHR in June. Any advice for securing the type of role I'm aiming for?


I have been in HR for 7 years now and am finding it difficult to find an employer with proper work-life balance. I would like anytime that I’m out of the office to be secured me time. No work phone calls or texts after hours or on vacation, but this just isn’t seeming possible once you hit the director/managerial level. Should I continue to look for a more fitting opportunity or is anyone finding this standard for HR?


Best job to get to transition into HR?

Does anyone know where to start in HR please?

My goal role in 5 years let’s say is Chief People Officer / People & Culture Director, etc.

My background is 12+ years in customer/client experience, coaching, sales, and account management. I’m finishing a Lv7 executive coaching course and starting a CIPD Lv5 people management course.

Any ideas on what roles I can start with? Don’t care if it’s a simple role, getting in with a good company is important.


Are there any hiring managers that have been approached by a hopeful candidate via LinkedIn? If so, what was your take on the experience? Did you have an appreciation for the candidate reaching out or was put off? Thanks in advance!


Hey all, new to this bowl. Currently a Tech Recruiter and eventually want to make the transition into a HRBP or HR Generalist role. Would love to hear from anyone who started in recruiting then transitioned into another area of HR. Have been thinking of either working on PHR certification or MBA with focus in HR mgt. Thanks!


We are about to start doing demos for a new ATS. Any suggestions?


Hi, Ben Analyst with 2.5 YOE. Anyone here graduate with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies? Has that held you back in your career and what degree or cert did you obtain when furthering your career? I am looking to grow in benefits and I've reviewed CEBs, PHR and was interested in obtaining my MA, in HRM? Feedback?


When pursing a private sector job what’s the best way to plan for retirement? I know that government job usually have way better benefits for retirement . Any advice?


I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼


Has anyone been termed for performance?

I am currently interviewing with DoorDash for a Program Manager role and they are offering 140tc. This seems extremely low especially since I’m in a HCOL. Is that a fair salary? Or does DoorDash just pay low?



Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

I had my PHR back in early 2000, then made a career change to a paramedic (I know, right). I called SHRM and they said I'm eligible to test again even though I only currently have 1.5 yrs of HR.

I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.

Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks - lauren
