Hi All,
I Hope you are doing Good.
I am a fresher in HR domain. I started working for a company but feel lost when technical terms and laws are cited during discussion.
Can someone help in knowing the steps how should I start my learning and share resources for the same.

In anticipation for support from HR Community

Dear Shivam,

You haven't mentioned your academic qualifications. Were HRM and IR your subjects in the curriculum, certainly you would have the rudimentary knowledge to handle your current job as a HR person. However it doesn't matter if you have the initiative to learn them afresh by doing the following:
1) Read labor law books with precise comments written by authors like H.L.Kumar or others.
2) Going through the judgments of the Supreme Court and High Courts regularly will help you understand the practical IR problems and their effective resolution. Therefore, it is better to subscribe to any law journals like LLR,LLJ so as to know the latest judgments
3) You may go through voluminous commentary books on individual subjects like Industrial Disputes, Standing Orders, Payment of Wages, Contract labor, Social security measures like EPF, ESI, Employees Compensation, gratuity etc. There are books written by famous jurists like K.D.Srivatsava, O.P.Malhotra. These books would enable you understand the philosophy behind these subject matters.
4) There are very good books on subjects like emotional intelligence, negotiations, problem solving by world famous authors like Daniel Coleman, Copen Hagon, Peter F. Druckar, Edward DE Bono.
5) In addition, you may go in for any degree or diploma in distant mode on HRM and IR.
6) You also should go through the newly passed four Labor Codes.
7) You should also develop the habit of periodically going through web sires and blog posts on HR/labor laws.
8) Above all, job wise cultivate the habit of being an active listener.
9)As a beginner, it is always better to seek the advice and guidance of your seniors whenever you experience any difficulty in handling an issue.
10) Always, keep in mind that a HR person should act as a bridge between the employer and employees and try to help both to promote their mutual interests in a larger perspective.
I wish you all the best in your career.
