Introducing “What the Hell Just Happened?” An HR Podcast Featuring CEDR CEO Paul Edwards

How safe is it to let a new employee go if they aren’t a good fit? What if you just found out that new employee is pregnant? 

How could an audit by your state’s Labor Commission leave you with a surprise $800,000 bill (It happened to one California employer earlier this year)?

How did throwing an employee a birthday party lead to a $450,000 settlement against a Kentucky-based laboratory?

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

You don’t know what you don’t know. And, when it comes to HR and employment laws, most employers are SHOCKED by what they learn from talking to CEDR CEO and Founder Paul Edwards for just ten minutes.

But Paul’s a busy man. And, though he would love nothing more than to talk one-on-one with each and every business owner and manager interested in learning about HR compliance, team management strategies, and how to protect their businesses, there’s only so much Paul to go around.

So, we’ve got the next best thing for you:
