HR Roles

Evil HR Lady

First I must say how much I’ve enjoyed your blog – it helped me a lot when I applied for a new job last year. Now (for only the second time in my career) I work for a company that is large enough to actually have an HR department! My question is, I see references to roles such as ‘HR Generalist’ and ‘HR Business Partner’, and I’m sure there are more I haven’t found yet. Could you please give a quick summary of the various HR roles and the differences? Oh the desire for Snark is overwhelming me.

Drinking at Lunch

Evil HR Lady

I am a Project Manager who was reprimanded for going out to a restaurant for lunch with several employees. One of them had a beer and upon returning to the office he commented to the newly appointed (inexperienced and unqualified) "Executive Assistant" what she missed for not going with us. I don't believe the company is liable if we are hourly paid employees during a lunch not paid by the company and not related to work in any way.
