The AAFD is proud to welcome our recent Bronze Sponsor supplier member, myHRcounsel LLC, an online, on demand legal services company providing small and medium sized businesses with unlimited HR/labor law services, corporate law and welfare benefit plan (“ERISA”) law.  AAFD Members will now have access to affordable and immediate legal advice, as opposed to general HR “information” that exposes franchisees trying to ‘do-it-themselves’ and risk fines and penalties for not keeping up with the many state and federal law changes. For one flat monthly fee, myHRcounsel provides franchisees the ability to receive independent legal advice and support at a price that is known and affordable.

Backed by over 50 attorneys nationwide, myHRcounsel covers all things legal for all 50 states.  With human resources issues during the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for legal advice, be it for drafting legal Pandemic Response plans, updating or drafting federal and state employee handbooks, or advising on sick pay, PTO, layoffs or furloughs because of Covid-19, myHRcounsel provides responsive support (providing a 2 hours or less “service level agreement”) critical for franchisee’s to run their businesses – businesses that don’t slow down or pause while they wait days and weeks for their traditional law firm to return a voicemail and then charge them thousands of dollars for a simple legal document or consultation.

In addition to the on demand legal advice and legal drafting, franchisees also have access to the thousands of legal resources, online training (including the state mandated sexual harassment training required in 6 states in the US) and legal documents for their use.

AAFD Chairman, Robert Purvin, welcomes myHRcounsel as the AAFD’s newest Bronze Level Sponsor. “We have been most impressed by myHRcounsel’s ability to extend valuable and affordable legal support for our franchisee members in their human resource needs. I encourage our members to investigate these valuable services.”

AAFD members can now purchase the program ASK HR™ for a special discounted price of $49 per franchisee unit (reg. $1.99 per employee per month, minimum $99 per company/unit per month).  Subscribing to ASK HR gives franchisees the ability to proactively become legally compliant and stay compliant without running up huge legal bills!

AAFD Members can access myHRcounsel through the AAFD Suppliers Network and we have included a special link through the AAFD Franchisee LegaLinesm network.
