Let’s take a closer look at each of the major services that UniqueHR has to offer.

screening, developing on-site and online human resource training programs, as well as consultation on employee-related issues, which include disciplinary actions and terminations.

about risk within their organization with the highest amount of integrity and expertise. Whenever a worker qualifies for Workers’ Compensation, UniqueHR protects everyone’s interests, including those of the employer and the employee.
