"Highway Inn became a member of HEC in 2009 initially to take advantage of its employee handbook benefit. This proved to be more cost effective than other alternatives as the handbook required numerous updates as labor laws continually changed and evolved. Since then, we have also been able to take advantage of HEC's meeting rooms to hold our company's annual training which includes HEC's supervisory classes for our management team and to cover required specific training for all of our employees.
Most employers understand the numerous challenges of owning and operating a business in Hawai'i and need to outsource functions where it makes good business sense. Furthermore, our American legal system has enabled people to file lawsuits that are with or without merit, and ultimately the employer shoulders this additional burden. By utilizing HEC’s resources we are able to stay updated and compliant and be confident that we have managed the risk of lawsuits. Staying informed and out of court will be worth every penny paid in dues."
