Human Resources Solutions for Business Owners
One of the benefits of working with FrankCrum is the unprecedented matching of your unique needs with human resources solutions.
HR is a necessary part of being in business, but it’s probably not what you went into business to do. As your business grows, responsibilities can mount and you may feel burdened with a dizzying array of paperwork, policies and procedures. These distractions can sidetrack your attention and energy from your core business.
An HR Team to Work for You
As your customized HR solutions provider, FrankCrum puts a team of dedicated professionals to work for you. We stay current with the large volume of rules and regulations that apply to employers, making it easy for you to comply with industry standards. Our HR solutions provide you with checklists, updated forms, and ongoing guidance to make it practical for your business to achieve best practices in every facet of HR. We constantly monitor regulatory changes, from the federal government down to the individual/state level. We provide the information you need to make good decisions about “how” your business will best comply. Finally, we support you further by developing tools to efficiently manage the process.
With our service, you can enjoy a more streamlined process when it’s time to add to your workforce. With our unique HR solutions specializations, we can handle employment verification (e-verify), background checks, and drug screening for prospective employees. We make the new hire procedural work simple with our electronic onboarding system. Your new employees can complete their required paperwork electronically by simply logging in. This process speeds up turnaround time – meaning that your new hire can start contributing to your business much sooner. In addition, our paperless system can guide employees through the completion of all necessary forms and prompt them to verify that information is accurate. Thanks to our HR solutions, the employer is always able to retain onboarding forms online for easy access at any time in the future.
HR Platform System
Employers enjoy additional control and flexibility when it comes to human resources, thanks to FrankCrum’s fully customizable HR solutions online portal, MyFrankCrum. Managers can maintain personnel files, access employee forms like the I-9 and W-2, and manage employee time and attendance. Employees can easily update their information, access required forms, request time off, and view company news. The system also includes an online library for employers where they can access forms and other valuable HR and safety materials. Additionally, MyFrankCrum can enhance communication between you and your employees. You can post documents, company news, important information and more in a central location for easy access. All of this is available without any extra software, service or installation – the system is hosted online through FrankCrum and is accessible from any internet connection.

Unemployment Claims Management
Dealing with unemployment claims is a time-consuming and tedious process. Many business owners are simply not equipped to handle unemployment matters for a number of reasons, whether it is a lack of awareness or lack of experience in staff members. FrankCrum’s HR solutions will process your claims and see them through to the end. We work with the state on your behalf, hosting telephone hearings and advising you every step of the way.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)
The number of employment related lawsuits remains high. In 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received over 93,000 charges just for discrimination claims. Protect your business with Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) – a benefit enjoyed by FrankCrum’s clients at a tremendously discounted rate. EPLI coverage is intended to help with the expenses of lawsuits that can be filed against you by your employees or former employees. Assuming certain conditions are met, the following are some examples of types of claims covered under an EPLI policy:
- Discrimination based on race, color, creed, national origin, gender, military service, pregnancy, sexual orientation, marital status, sex, religion, age, disability, handicap or any other protected class
- Wrongful termination
- Sexual harassment
- Whistleblower claims
- Other claims that could be related to employment such as libel, slander, or other defamation, invasion of privacy, mental anguish, infliction of emotional distress, loss of consortium, assault, battery, breach of contract, negligent hiring, supervision, promotion or retention
When you’re an employer, uncomfortable situations can come up with your employees involving poor performance, attendance, and/or conduct. Our experienced human resources team will consult with you and your managers about how to handle these matters productively and compliantly. Additionally, as part of our HR solutions, we can assist you with drafting internal policies and procedures that can help your business run smoothly and efficiently.
FrankCrum’s online HR solutions allow us to work with you to craft accurate, consistent and complete job descriptions for both current and future positions. This feature is very beneficial to any business. Your current employees will be completely clear about what is required of them on the job – which could be important to your case if there is ever an unemployment claim or lawsuit. In addition, you’ll be able to better communicate what an unfilled position consists of, to attract and hire the best person for the job.
