This training will focus on the skills necessary to navigate the many workplace regulations that can impact Employers by arming them with the fundamentals of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), American with Disabilities Act (ADA), American with Disabilities Act Addendum (ADAA), Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). Then and only then can Employers feel confident about juggling all these regulations without making decisions that can impact negatively on employees and the organization. When you add strict guidelines of Workers Compensation claims and the financial impact of high volume claims versus safety in the workplace, we need to provide Employers with as much awareness, tools and strategies to reduce risk and increase confidence. This training provides the necessary level of knowledge of compliance initiatives and resources that can assist HR professionals, supervisors and Employers in ensuring effective workplace compliance.
Do you work with "Big Data"? Do you import and manipulate large datasets in Excel? If so you’ll already be familiar with the limitations of Excel. Power Query, (known as Get and Transform in Excel 2016) is designed to get you past these limitations, allowing you to import and work with 1-million-plus-row datasets from virtually any source.
Power Query / Get and Transform can save you a ton of time when working with imported data. In many cases when you get data from external sources, it needs work on it before it can be used. Although this can be done using Excel functionality, Power Query / Get and Transform is a lot faster, can handle much more data, and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
This program is directed primarily at compensation and HR professionals or individuals responsible for designing and implementing compensation programs or for leaders interested in having a better understanding of compensation systems.
It’s confusing isn’t it? How are we supposed to keep it all straight when there are times when the legal requirements of both FMLA and the ADAAA are similar, yet at other times one law contradicts another? We find that we can’t comply with both laws at the same time, so which one takes precedence over the other? And where does WC come in? To complicate matters even more, WC is a state law, while FMLA and ADAAA are federal laws, and there are other state civil rights laws that also impact FMLA and the ADAAA. Consider that an injury under WC may also be a “serious health condition” under FMLA. State laws may differ from federal laws by covering additional health conditions, may apply to small organizations, or may cover situations in which the federal laws have no say such as domestic abuse.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990. The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities similar to those provided to individuals based on race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.
Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices. Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act will ensure your organization is operating in an ethical manner.
An employee handbook is a written and/or electronic document outlining the benefits and responsibilities of the employment relationship. The purpose of the handbook is much more complex and powerful than employers may realize. This webinar will outline the steps to developing an employee handbook that will treat employees consistently and provide legal protection when an employment relationship runs into issues.
