What Members Are Saying about the HR Hotline


"MassCPAs HR Hotline is fabulous. I needed clarification on the Massachusetts PFMLA and wanted to make sure I understood the rules, primarily to make sure I was accounting for them correctly. Laurie reached out within 24 hours, we had a quick call and I was able to resolve my question very quickly. She is knowledgeable, professional and asked all the right questions. I highly recommend this service if you need assistance, even for a quick question!"

“Laurie and her team quickly addressed my unemployment claim question that my client had. This is a great resource that MassCPAs is providing its members!”

“The service was excellent! My difficult COVID-19 questions were answered with solutions that made sense.”

"As a small firm, it is very difficult to have HR professionals on staff so having the ability to reach out to a professional who can guide you through a challenging time was key for us."
