HRinfodesk Editorial Policy

HRinfodesk provides information about employment and labour law across Canada, including payroll, benefits, policies and procedures, and human resources issues.

Our Goal
To provide a single access point to:
  • Current Canadian employment, labour and human resources information
  • The latest resources in the field of workplace/human resources
  • Quick news items
  • Sample forms, letters, policies and procedures
  • Insights into workplace issues from key sources

Website User Profile
Website users are small- to medium-sized businesses, including human resources professionals as well as those interested in workplace issues. The majority of users are not human resources professionals but have human resources responsibilities or are responsible and manage personnel within their companies. Most users work for companies with 100 or fewer employees.

Our Information Partnerships
Our information partnerships are developed through partnerships with key business/legal contacts and information sources. If you share your proprietary information with us, you will receive company acknowledgement, a website and email link, and a corporate description with each information item. A list of current and past contributors can be found at www.hrinfodesk.com/contributors.asp.
