So all I have to do is tack OSHA and Labor memos on a corkboard? And tell employees "you can find that online" if they have a question? 'Cos that's all a fu*king HR person does (with a few exceptions).

In my first job, 10,000 years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I was a junior HR staff member.

Now, to work in HR, you have to think about the needs of your employer and do everything you can to not quite satisfy those needs. You also need to have a nebulous understanding of every position in your organization, and try your best to find people who don't quite fit those positions, because you firmly believe that hiring managers have too much time on their hands, and that resume buzzwords are more important than experience or skill set.

You also need to be able to not empathize with human beings in pain, and to almost but not quite understand your organizations benefit system, and to actually think that a day long session on StrengthsFinder is a valuable use of time. A really quality HR person will schedule a mandatory team bonding exercise during a stressful and busy time in the year, when everyone has an immovable deadline.

Ours does payroll, handles workman's comp issues, handles the health insurance plan, manages vacation time, and organizes company social events.

Thanks for making my 'with a few exceptions' point. You're lucky you have a good one instead of an overpaid asshole.

Maybe they can work a three-way trade with PBS and The Weinstein Company.
Throw in some draft picks to be named later.

I'm sick of breeders feeling entitled.

If I'm hiring you, a communications major, at six figures to look pretty on the sideline for only five minutes every football game, then make a decision.  It's a fair question.  After five years of service, then yes, go have your life changing event.  Or at least do it in the off-season, so I know you are taking your job seriously.

I don't mean to come off as flippant about this...(you know there's a but coming), but NFL gambling is a second income to me. I read, watch and dissect every bit of information about every game.
/ and I have no f*cking clue who this woman is// is/was she on-air "talent"?

The NFL is a clusterfark anyway so I wouldn't expect any better from them. If they really used that phrase though, that's pretty farked up.

Egads no. I only do HR stuff for part of my job (mostly accounting and IT) but it's a right biatch of a job. Health plan, 402k, pto, LTD, freaking' fmla, workers comp, reviews, payroll/taxes, training - the shiat is endless. Go ahead and be  'what I do is hard and taken for granted but what she does is easy and meaningless' guy. Anyone who has done it knows how much work it is. And anyone who has worked at a place that didn't give a damn about it realized what they are missing.

Look, let's not argue.  Maybe some HR jobs at some companies are different than some HR jobs at other companies.

We should be able to all agree that the most difficult part of a job in the useless Marketing department is taking the client (and yourself) out to lunch on the company's dime and say, "maybe instead of jeans, the people in the ad copy should be wearing khakis."

And when the Gov't discovers how much money they can save by replacing you with computer software, you get the Phoenix software HR fiasco in Canada!

So no matter how bad your HR might be right now, 250,000-500,000 gov't employees in Canada can show you it can be much, much worse.

/"We overpaid you by $25,000 net, so we will need you to pay back the $50,000 gross we overpaid you. We will be doing that by garnishing %100 of your wages (which are still being overpaid, we haven't fixed that yet) for the next 20 pay cycles or you can pay the $50,000 right now."

You're not gonna believe this, but other countries actually mandate paid family leave time. The horror!

First - it's not "a fair question" because it's strictly an illegal question to ask.

Second - it's a stupid question to ask because providing workers with work/life balance is a great way to attract and retain really good employees willing to do really good work for you. If you have flexibility around their schedules and other responsibilities, they're going to be more dedicated and work harder.

How do people that have at least a small amount of brains not know that while you might think it, you can't ask it? You've got to get rid of the person that asks this type of question -- not because they asked it, but they've proven they're an idiot, and are probably hurting your company in many other ways, too.

Once worked with a woman that had 4 kids in ~6 years (two were pretty close to the definition of Catholic twins, probably 10-12 months apart)....she couldn't understand why she was fired not long after she came back to work from #4.  Between doctors appts, just generally not feeling well, maternity leave, etc, she was gone far more than she was present during that time.

/after all of her work was just divvied up amongst others in the department, leaving her with nowhere to go and nothing to do
//NFL HR guy was a dumbass for asking it out loud
