Human Resources Expertise

MACNY’s HR Department is committed to providing the resources our members need to successfully manage the complexities of employer/employee relations, and serve as an extra arm of HR expertise. Members utilize our HR staff and consultants as a way of adding to their internal operations, through surveys, HR related compliance questions, or consulting services such as writing an affirmative action plan, conducting an employee engagement and satisfaction survey, or polling the membership through an e-connect.


You can trust that MACNY will provide you with the right answers to your Human Resource questions.


MACNY is your connection to a network of HR experts. We have the experience and knowledge base to get you the information you need.

MACNY acts as your shield when you have questions for any of the following agencies: New York State and United States Department of Labor, DEC, OSHA, etc. We will make the call for you so you don’t have to. Do you have a question for one of the agencies? Contact Patty Clark at [email protected].


MACNY offers two ways to get answers to questions you may have: HR Hotline allows you to ask MACNY’s HR Staff questions regarding personnel policies and practices, labor law, safety and health, environment, immigration and just about any other business issue you need help with.  An E-connect allows you to ask other MACNY members a question, and get advice from them. If you would like to ask MACNY HR Staff or MACNY’s Members a question email [email protected].


Is your compensation and benefits package consistent with the standards in the region and within your industry? MACNY’s surveys provide up-to-date information to help you decide.


In partnership with Brown & Brown Empire State, MACNY is now offering a free Workers’ Compensation Question Hotline. Simply complete the following form and a representative from Brown & Brown will be in touch to discuss and answer your question. Any additional services completed by Brown & Brown at your request will be at the expense of the requesting company. We hope you will find this to be a valuable addition to your MACNY membership.
