1. JOB DESCRIPTIONS ARE OLD FASHIONED AND NO LONGER USEFUL...NOT!
If yours is like most organizations, it has been a while since you thought about job descriptions or perhaps even looked at them. This can be a big mistake. Job descriptions can be part of your first line of defense against charges of discrimination; violation of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); even classification claims under FLSA. However, if they are not up-to-date, or are inaccurate, or written in broad generalities, they can hurt your defense. This Webinar presents practical “how-to” basics in documenting relevant job information and documenting the information in a manner that supports HR decisions with respect to performance management, employee development, reasonable accommodation under ADA, and classification.
2. FLSA COMPLIANCE TIPS
Compliance is the watchword for this year. The Department of Labor has increased its staff by over 300 agents who will be ready to identify employers that are not in compliance with requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). According to its 8th Annual Litigation Trends Survey conducted by Fulbright and Jaworski LLP, wage and hour litigation involving multi-plaintiff actions is the area respondents believe will see the greatest increase for the foreseeable future. Most U.S. companies indicate they will spend over $100,000 in lawsuits related to wage and hour due to stricter regulations. Take this one very seriously! This webinar will present tips and information that you can use to audit and correct areas of possible exposure.
3. VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE
In the wake of the increase of tragedies happening in our public spaces, including instances of violence taking place in the workplace, employers should be concerned about the degree to which they are prepared to respond to an incident of violence. Additionally, current policies and procedures need to be reviewed for their effectiveness in planning against violent acts occurring in the workplace. Planning and prevention require more than a written policy. All employees, managers, supervisors, and employees should be aware of what they are to do in the event of an act of violence in the workplace. Supervisors should increase their “conflict competence” because they are often on the frontline and therefore the key players in planning and prevention. They are the group most likely to experience violence and therefore can most benefit from conflict management. This webinar provides useful information and presents information that can help you take the necessary steps to develop and implement a good plan, just in case your workplace experiences an act of violence.
4. TURNOVER TIPS
Turnover is a cost of doing business. The amount of costs can be affected by the employees you lose and the employees who stay, particularly if your best performers and “key people” are leaving. This webinar presents a “how-to” for determining your turnover costs. It will also help you dive into the turnover data to find out which employees are leaving and why they are leaving your company for another employer, and whether there is an issue you need to address.
