Whether it's due to retirement or other reasons, sometimes people need to leave their careers on hold without another one to take its place. What happens now? Perhaps your savings is okay, but what about health insurance?

Are You Selling Out for the Benefits?
Sometimes people don't love their jobs, but stay anyway. A paycheck is one of the essentials for most people, after all. Another essential many receive from employment is benefits, especially those tied to health care.

The Benefits of Making the Right Hire

To Catch an Office Thief
Here comes what you, as an employer, have dreaded. You think one or more of your employees is stealing. No matter what it may be, it’s cause for action.

So you've found the perfect job candidate and are thinking of hiring him. But wait; he or she’s been fired previously. What should you do? Should you still consider hiring them or run in the other direction for fear their incompetence will resurface and you'll just have to fire them as well?
