Intricacies of the Fair Labor Standards Act


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, was passed in 1938 and since then has been amended many times.  The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal rights.  The US Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division, oversees federal labor laws.  Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws.  Failure to comply with Wage & Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments.  Therefore, Wage & Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.

Diversity & Inclusion Strategy: A Necessary Workplace Survival Tactic


Diversity and Inclusion must be embedded into the fabric of the organization; it must become part of the organization’s strategic plan.  In addition, part of the implementation process includes incorporating diversity and inclusion performance objectives within each employee and manager’s performance objectives.  We’ll discuss the issue of training and the role it needs to play in the diversity and inclusions as well as how to engage middle managers—who are already stressed with too much work and too little time. And finally, once the strategy has been designed and implemented, what metrics need to be used to measure the success of your organization’s  strategy.

Sexual Harassment Training including Transgender & Gender Equity - California Regulations AB 1825, CA 2053 and the FEHC mandated effective January 1 2018


Requirement Criteria - California requires all Employers with 50 or more employees to provide sexual harassment training to their supervisors/managers as part of regulations AB No. 1825 for several years. Effective, January 1, 2018, the sexual harassment training regulation has expanded to include specific transgender topics. This new regulation enhances the previous requirements. To be compliant with regulations, the Trainer must be qualified to conduct this training. Margie Faulk, PHR, SHRM-CP, Compliance Officer for HR Compliance Solutions, is qualified and certified to conduct this training. Have your supervisors/managers trained by a qualified compliance professional to meet your requirements!

Supreme Court decisions and the current EEOC Guidelines make it clear that employers need to go beyond simply having an anti-harassment policy. Employers must provide training to ensure every manager and employee understands the organization's harassment policy. Employers must show due diligence relative to controlling workplace harassment. Every employee should be trained on what harassment is, and what to do about harassment, if they see it happening to them or anyone else.

Managers and supervisors must be aware of their liability and their responsibility to control harassment. They need to know how to prevent sexual, and other forms of workplace harassment, and what steps to take if harassment claims are made.

Per the regulations, the learning objectives of the training mandated by Government Code section 12950.1 shall be:

  • To meet the California state regulations AB 1825, AB 2053, SB 396 regarding providing sexual harassment training to supervisors/managers and newly hired/promoted supervisors within 6 months of hire/promotion and every 2 years;
  • To assist California employers in changing or modifying workplace behaviors that create or contribute to "sexual harassment," as that term is defined in California and federal law;
  • To provide trainees with information related to the negative effects of abusive conduct (as defined in Government Code section 12950.1(g)(2)) in the workplace; and
  • To develop, foster, and encourage a set of values in supervisory employees who complete mandated training that will assist them in preventing, and effectively responding to incidents of sexual harassment, and implementing mechanisms to promptly address and correct wrongful behavior." (§11024(b))
  • To provide sensitivity, protection and restroom safety as per OSHA Best Practices for establishing transgender guidelines;

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) Finally Updates Their 1970 Sex Discrimination Guidelines: What You Need to Know to Reduce Liability


The OFCCP’s updated sex discrimination guidelines, called the Final Rule, “Discrimination on the Basis of Sex”, clarifies the connection between Title VII Civil Rights law, and OFCCP”S regulations.  The Final Rule, according to OFCCP’s Fact Sheet, facilitates contractors’ understanding and compliance with Title VII, which results in a possible reduction in contractor costs as well as an increase in labor-market efficiency. The Final Rule is necessary to ensure contractors are consistent with today’s workplace culture and challenges.  It prohibits contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against employees and applicants based on their religion, race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity (protected classes).  The Rule makes clear that discrimination of the protected classes includes issues related to hiring, promotions, recruitment, job assignments, training, benefits, pay, and discipline, as well as harassment.

Surfing the silver tsunami - Workers Compensation, ADA, FMLA, Mental Illness and Other Workplace Regulations! Will there be any protection?


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.

The Complexity & Interplay Among the ADAAA, FMLA, and Worker’s Comp (WC): How Do They Work Together—Or Not?:


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.
