Employers must get prepared for all the employment regulations scheduled to be effective January 1, 2019, 2020 and beyond. Federal regulations have increased more this year than previous years. Both Federal and State regulations have at times been at odds with each other. The Department of Labor (DOL) has increased their efforts to audit companies who have not updated their policies & workplace regulations. The other regulatory agencies (Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are also increasing efforts to target Employers who are not compliant with their regulations. Not only are the many new workplace laws that will impact Employers, but also those laws that were effective in 2017-2018 but Employers were not aware.
Employers with multi-state locations are more than ever at risk for non-compliance of regulations unless they develop a process to coordinate workplace required posters, new hire communication required, wage increases, transgender restroom obligations, paid leave regulations per state, regulations and requirements for terminated employees and regulations for federal contractors.
Many companies have challenges keep track and keeping up with all the workplace laws and regulations that impact companies with more than 20 employees. Think of the challenges when the company has locations in multiple states and even across International locations. Companies are at risk for several workplace laws that can impact many parts of an organization. From staffing, hiring, compensation, background screening, employee leave management, performance, social media, public sector, termination and discrimination are just some of the areas that will impact the risk management in companies and companies should take this seriously.
Why should you attend?
Fines and penalties lead the list of compliance concerns with Employers. What works in one state will not work in another. A company without a knowledgeable HR professional or compliance resource can get drowned in all the ways that the Federal and multi-state differences can be confusing, time consuming, multifaceted and complicated to ensure that an organization complies.
These regulations must be included as policies or inserted in Employee Handbooks and communicated to all employees every time there is a change, an update or new regulations.
Here are other factors that can impact the risk organizations:
