24: NLRA Mandates: The Rules ALL Employers Must Follow

Team of Businesspeople Looking at a Computer Monitor
HR & CE Webinars 60

The National Labor Relations Act applies to virtually all private-sector employers, whether they’re union employers or not. Enforced by the NLRB, it gives non-management workers powerful rights and dictates everything from what rules you can include in your handbook to how you can treat employees who walk off the job. And when it comes to forming unions, it’s never been easier, thanks to new NLRB election rules.

What’s more, until recently, union membership was on the decline. Not anymore. Making matters worse, major unions aren’t just targeting big employers. They’re going after every business with more than one employee, from ma-and-pa pizza shops to small manufacturing operations and beyond—and they’re succeeding. Plus, they can point to eye-popping wage gains for auto workers, delivery service drivers, and warehouse employees to sell the advantage of unionizing.

HR & CE Webinars 61

In the event of a workplace lawsuit or regulatory audit, your organization’s stores of email, Slack messages, and social media posts will be scoured and possibly even seized as proof of bad (or good) behavior by employees.

Are you 100% confident your HR department is retaining and purging business records in full compliance with the law and regulatory bodies? Are remote, hybrid, and on-site employees fully adhering to the organization’s records-retention policy and deletion schedule when using both employer-provided and personal devices?

Don’t leave the handling of your electronic and HR business records to chance. Compliance with the law is mandatory, and mistakes can be expensive (to your company and your career).

HR & CE Webinars 62

Remote and hybrid work are here to stay. But too many organizations still haven’t updated their policies for this new world, which puts your organization (and career) at a big risk. Even seasoned HR professionals and supervisors are confused about when they legally MUST say “yes” to employees’ remote-work accommodation requests, and when they can—and should—say “no.”

On Wednesday, April 17th, discover your organization’s rights and responsibilities in this new way of working. Employment law attorney Anniken Davenport will walk you through the steps to get your remote procedures and policies in airtight legal compliance—from timekeeping and accommodations to classifications and multi-state pay issues.

And no other job can prepare you for this challenging assignment. Now, you not only have to worry about your performance, but about how others perform, too.

Your employees are judged by the quality of the work they do. But as a manager, you’ve got to do more. Truly great managers are judged by the work of their teams.

To help you master the “secrets” of successful managers, we’ve teamed up with management coach Marie McIntyre, Ph.D., to bring you a foundational training on how to serve as an effective supervisor.

11: New Overtime Regulations: How to Implement the Rule Changes

HR & CE Webinars 64

Payroll administration has become more complicated in the past year. Employees working remotely continue to challenge Payroll. Dubious claims for the pandemic-related employee retention credit have caused the IRS to ramp up payroll audits. And the IRS has hired and trained new auditors for just this purpose.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau wants to nix agreements allowing you to recoup the cost of training employees who quit before you can reap the benefit of that training. 

And the Department of Labor has two huge regulatory projects — one raising the guaranteed salary employees must earn to be exempt from overtime and the other defining who are employees and independent contractors — in the pipeline.

It’s a question that troubles most employers and HR professionals when dealing with accommodations.

At what point have you done enough to offer extra leave, revised job tasks, altered workstations, or modified schedules? When must you say “yes” to such accommodations? When can you say “no”? When is it legal to say goodbye to the employee?

On April 10, discover precisely how to navigate this dangerous legal line at the Employee Accommodations Workshop. This comprehensive 4-hour training workshop covers all your legal compliance obligations under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the complex maze of other related laws.

This webinar is packed with tips and strategies to investigate any workplace problem quickly and legally.

4: Independent Contractor Rule: Comply Now or Pay the Price

HR & CE Webinars 67

Federal and state agencies are intent on aggressively investigating misclassification of employees as independent contractors. The “whole of government” approach is being used in this arena—DOL WHD, NLRB, EEOC, FTC, and more. On March 11, the Department of Labor’s final rule on independent contractors for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act took effect, restoring the DOL’s six-part economic realities test.

And while the federal government’s definition keeps changing, the result is a rule that leaves businesses confused about when they can classify a worker as a contractor. If you get it wrong, you could face stiff penalties, as evidenced by many high-ticket court rulings. Get those classifications right by attending this timely webinar led by two experts on the topic.

3: How to Comply with New EEOC Harassment Guidance

HR & CE Webinars 68

When you hear the word “harassment” in the workplace, cases involving sex or race often come to mind. But the EEOC also enforces laws prohibiting work-related harassment based on color, religion, disability, genetic information, and age. It’s rampant enough of an issue that the commission has completely revamped its harassment enforcement guidance.

This is the first significant change to how EEOC investigators are supposed to approach and investigate harassment complaints since the turn of the century. While it’s designed for EEOC investigators and lawyers to follow, employers would be wise to follow the guidelines. Ignore them at your own risk.

2: Negativity Detox: A Workshop for Managers

HR & CE Webinars 69

Managers often feel frustrated and helpless when confronted with employees who complain, criticize, or try to stir up trouble. They may quickly assume there is no way to change these “personality problems,” so they do their best to contain the damage. However, tolerating such harmful behaviors is definitely NOT the smartest strategy.

Chronic negativity frequently starts with only one or two employees, but it can quickly infect an entire department, ruin a culture — and impact the business. When this happens, the inevitable result is reduced productivity, damaged morale, and eventually, increased turnover. Wise managers work to nip negativity in the bud.

28: Employee Handbook Checklist: Required Changes for 2024

HR & CE Webinars 70

Important rulings from the Supreme Court require you to rethink policies and practices on weapons, health care, religious expression, and religious accommodations. Plus, now is the time to start rethinking DEI policies in light of the court’s affirmative action rulings and recently filed lawsuits. Then there’s the NLRB — another federal agency that’s been declaring many common handbook policies illegal and anti-union. A new take on handbook rules has made nearly all rules on workplace behavior into potential unfair labor charges!

Missing or poorly worded policies can quickly lead to an expensive lawsuit. Your C-suite expects you to keep every word in your handbook up-to-date. Every HR department should use this simple checklist of the crucial changes you need to make to your employee handbook. Including policies on employee leave, DE&I, social media rules, and new federally mandated breaks and accommodations, this fast-paced training session will explain what should be revised in your handbook now.

It’s no longer okay to say culture doesn’t matter — research says otherwise, and employees are leaving organizations because they don’t feel connected to the company culture. It’s up to the leader to change that. 

In Culture Counts: Developing an Empowered, Engaged, and Connected Workplace, you will discover that productivity and the biggest bottom line are not the only things that matter. It’s the people, the purpose, and the culture. You will learn what it takes to build a brave workplace culture, and why it’s crucial to the success of your organization. 

We’ll explore the five bravery barriers getting in your way, and how to bust through them. You’ll learn how to engage in braver conversations and connect more meaningfully with your colleagues. Discover how to create workspaces where everyone is celebrated for bringing their fears, their ideas, and their authentic selves to the table.

22: Workplace Detox: How to (Legally) Deal with Toxic Employees

Employees arguing
HR & CE Webinars 72

In this labor shortage, you can’t afford to simply cast off every “difficult” employee or those who have personality clashes with co-workers. Such employees may still be adding great value to your organization.

But quietly tolerating toxic employees is just begging for an employment lawsuit. And it’s guaranteed to lead to lower morale and high turnover. The Great Resignation has shown that many workers are simply walking away from organizations that are plagued by bullying, in-fighting, harassment, rumors and “Hunger Games” competitiveness.

Some of your competent-but-disruptive people should be terminated, but others simply need feedback, consequences and follow-through. On February 22, gather your HR and management teams to discover the best-practice steps to handle and document these issues — without drama or legal troubles.

21: Personnel Records: What to Create and Keep, What to Toss and When

HR & CE Webinars 73

Maintaining personnel records used to be a lot simpler. Any HR department that wanted to be “safe” relied on a “keep everything” policy. Today that approach could violate the rules on the “reasonable disposal of sensitive documents.” But if the wrong document is destroyed, it could result in big fines and penalties. It could even mean willful destruction of evidence and a lost lawsuit. Then there’s not creating records in the first place. Many laws require creating records. And sometimes it’s just good policy to document everything from job applications to interview notes and disciplinary records — just in case — and then know when to toss them.

On February 21, discover how to toss all that HR paperwork clutter but keep lawsuit-proof “armor” when it comes to personnel records. This engaging, entertaining webinar will explain HR recordkeeping requirements under federal, state and local laws and regulations.

15: Top 10 Best Practices for Workplace Inclusion

Satisfied colleagues receiving good business news at the office
HR & CE Webinars 75

Picture the best manager you ever had. He or she saw potential in you … cared about you as a person … gave you consistent feedback, while challenging and empowering you to move to the next level.

New research shows that this coaching style is the absolute most effective method of management — in terms of both employee performance and retention.

“Command and control” management is out. Today’s workplace requires managers who engage, inspire and provide regular feedback — not just tell employees what to do. You guide, support and encourage, rather than direct, control and coerce. Employees feel more supported and valued.

14: FMLA Master Class

HR & CE Webinars 76

The Family and Medical Leave Act has been around for 30 years, but still can be the most challenging and confusing part of an HR professional’s job. FMLA regulations are complex and the consequences for noncompliance are severe. Take charge of leave requests while staying within the law.

FMLA includes so many little compliance steps, notification rules and paperwork traps. And mistakes are costly. Since 2012, employee lawsuits claiming FMLA violations have more than tripled. And many of those cases result in million-dollar verdicts or settlements—all because of a simple FMLA mistake at the HR or manager level. Plus, your employees have become experts at playing the FMLA game to their advantage. (It’s nicknamed the “Friday-Monday Leave Act” for a very good reason!)

HR departments are tasked with handling the trickiest of workplace scenarios — protecting your company and employees by developing policies to prevent legal action. Learn how to tackle office relationships by implementing and enforcing a policy and ensuring proper documentation, for example, if your company chooses to opt for “love contracts.”

Also discover what to do when romance ends in heartache — and how to protect your employees from the fallout. Set guidelines for supervisor/non-supervisor relationships and learn why supervisor-subordinate relationships are a bad idea.

If your workplace is virtual only, and you think this doesn’t apply to you, think again. It’s still crucial to apply guidelines to these scenarios. Learn what happens if an office romance turns into sexual harassment.

It’s a question that troubles most employers when dealing with accommodations. At what point have you done enough to offer extra leave, revised job tasks, changes to workstations or modified schedules? When do you have to temporarily eliminate essential functions? When must you say “yes” to such accommodations, when can you say “no” and when is it legal to say goodbye? Plus, there are brand-new rules you have to follow during pregnancy and recovery that may trigger new lawsuits if you do not comply.

Get the details on navigating dangerous legal red lines at Accommodate or Terminate. This 75-minute webinar (plus 15 minutes for Q&A time) covers all your compliance obligations under the ADA, FMLA, Title VII’s religious discrimination and accommodation provisions, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and the PUMP Act.

In the corporate landscape, discussing mental health has traditionally been shrouded in stigma, but all that’s changed and HR leaders and managers must know how to work within this new landscape. In fact, as we navigate the post-COVID era, addressing mental health in the workplace is paramount.

HR & CE Webinars 81

As an employer, you expect those you hire to show up when scheduled. After all, that’s the whole point of hiring — to get work done. For employers, attendance is an essential function of jobs. But there are exceptions. People get sick. Dental appointments happen. Young employees start families, older employees end up caring for their parents. Workers with disabilities encounter setbacks. Religious beliefs and practices require occasional time off even during busy seasons. Reservists are called to active duty — even reservists serving in another country’s military — during military engagements and weather emergencies. And laws protect all these workers, within limits. Knowing those limits is key to balancing the need to get work done with your legal obligations.

Learn how to build an attendance program that encourages regular attendance, but with built-in checks that ensure you’re not illegally enforcing attendance rules.

Can you fire employees for off-duty marijuana use? Does the law allow you to test employees for marijuana? Are you obligated to accommodate medical use? How do state laws, federal legislation, and regulations, including the ADA affect what you can and cannot prohibit? 

As the march toward nationwide legalization continues, your organization can’t afford to leave cannabis compliance to chance.

While marijuana remains illegal on the federal level, states are legalizing medical and recreational use at a rapid clip. This patchwork of state laws leads to misunderstandings and questions about policies, testing, terminations, accommodations, and more.

HR & CE Webinars 84

The W-4 is the most basic tax form every employee completes. They shouldn’t need an accountant’s help to do so.

But employers continue to struggle with translating the paper form into their computer systems, and the IRS isn’t sympathetic. The agency snuck new guidelines for electronic W-4s into Pub. 15-T and then gave employers 90 days to completely revamp their electronic forms.  

Employees now have to do actual math to complete the form properly or are told to consult their tax accountants. It’s even tougher for employees with side gigs, because the IRS can’t seem to settle on the steps in the form they should complete.

HR & CE Webinars 87

Employers have brand-new legal obligations to reasonably accommodate workers expanding their families. The EEOC just announced expansive final proposed regulations that may require leave for everything pregnancy-related. Think infertility, stillbirth, abortion, menstruation, and maybe menopause leave. Plus, there’s a requirement that your pregnant employees be provided with reasonable accommodations that allow them to continue working up to giving birth. These reasonable accommodations can be something as simple as allowing late arrival for scheduled shifts due to morning sickness or providing unpaid leave after giving birth even if no paid leave is available or the employee isn’t eligible for unpaid FMLA leave. If a reasonable accommodation is available, you can’t choose to send the employee home on unpaid leave instead if she wants to work.

For HR departments, the process for completing I-9 forms has changed more in recent months than in the past 30 years. The same is true for the E-Verify system. In fact, one recent change means that you can’t perform remote document inspections for full-time teleworkers unless you sign up for E-Verify and follow very specific rules. One thing that hasn’t changed: Federal audits of I-9s are skyrocketing — up dramatically as agents return to in-person inspections at worksites across the U.S.

Your only protection against serious financial penalties — and even criminal prosecution — is strict compliance with all these changing rules. On January 10, take time to make sure your employment verification practices comply with all the new federal and state changes in this timely webinar.

The IRS has rolled out extensive new e-filing requirements that change the way you count 1099s to determine whether you’re a mandatory e-filer. These requirements drop the mandatory e-filing threshold substantially, guaranteeing even the smallest employers will be snagged. Larger employers aren’t off the hook, either. Also, employers face intense new scrutiny of their 1099s from the IRS — and forms filed in the wrong medium (even correct forms!) can trigger millions of dollars in tax penalties.

There is also a new, simplified e-filing platform from the IRS. IRIS debuted for filing 2022 1099s, but it’s still a work in progress. The agency says IRIS is just like W-2 Online (it isn’t), but some features can make your tasks easier to complete.

30: Employee Benefits Trends for 2024

HR & CE Webinars 96

50% of respondents to a recent HR survey said one of their biggest retention issues is competitive compensation and benefits, and that most companies don’t have a budget for higher wages. Employers must now offer comprehensive benefits that cover all areas (physical, mental, hybrid environment, health-care, financial, skills development, and more). 

Learn how to create a program that will raise your retention rates without sinking the budget, all while healthcare and pharmaceutical costs continue to rise. Not all of these benefits come with a high price tag. Factor in a hybrid work schedule, financial counseling, mental health days, time off to volunteer and give back to the community, and more.

29: Employee Handbook Checklist: Required Changes for 2024

How to Write and Update Your Employee Handbook
HR & CE Webinars 97

Important rulings from the Supreme Court require you to rethink policies and practices on weapons, health care, religious expression, and religious accommodations. Plus, now is the time to start rethinking DEI policies in light of the court’s affirmative action rulings and recently filed lawsuits. Then there’s the NLRB — another federal agency that’s been declaring many common handbook policies illegal and anti-union.

Missing or poorly worded policies can quickly lead to an expensive lawsuit. Your C-suite expects you to keep every word in your handbook up-to-date. Every HR department should use this simple checklist of the crucial changes you need to make to your employee handbook.

16: Motivation-Based Interviewing: A Revolutionary Approach to Hiring the Best

Hiring the right person from a group
HR & CE Webinars 99

How many times have you hired someone who seemed like a dynamo in the interview but ended up to be apathetic, indifferent, or just plain lazy? In addition to skills and experience, a person’s attitude is the key predictor of successful job performance — and it may be the most important.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could ask specific interview questions to identify candidates with the right passion, attitude and self-motivation for the job? Well, now you can.

On November 16, discover the importance of breaking through all those canned answers to learn the art of motivation-based interviewing (MBI), a method to identify high achievers that’s fast replacing behavior-based interviews.

The Supreme Court’s 2023 term has vastly altered the employment law landscape for human resource professionals. We’ve entered uncharted territory on affirmative action programs, religious accommodations, and worker freedom to exercise veto power over tasks assigned.

What’s more, we’re complying with sweeping changes at the federal level to overtime rules and exempt status, pregnancy accommodations, leave  and nursing break laws, I-9 documentation, and unionization. These new regulations are causing you to have to take some action. We recognize this action and are here to support you.

HR & CE Webinars 101

You can’t afford to make payroll mistakes, and that’s especially true when it comes to year-end planning and reporting. This end-of-year season will be more difficult, as the IRS has dropped the mandatory e-filing threshold for information returns to an aggregate of 10 returns, from 250. The new aggregation rule requires you to add up all your information returns from all departments to see if the 10-form threshold is met. This means all departments with tax-filing obligations must be on the same page because the penalties for failing to e-file are also going up.

9: New Overtime Regulations: How to Implement the Rule Changes

Person Talking on the Cellphone while Looking at the Laptop
HR & CE Webinars 103

Right before the Labor Day holiday, the DOL proposed expensive new overtime regulations that are expected to raise the salary level for exempt employees high enough to blow any labor budget. In addition, the proposed regs call for an automatic increase in the salary level for exempt administrative, executive, professional and highly compensated employees every three years. Those increases would not require the DOL to draft and issue proposed regulations for comment before implementation. 

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been around for nearly a century. It provides for a federal minimum wage plus sets rules for which workers are entitled to overtime, among other rules.

8: Personnel Records: What to Create and Keep, What to Toss and When

HR & CE Webinars 104

Maintaining personnel records used to be a lot simpler. Any HR department that wanted to be “safe” relied on a “keep everything” policy. Today that approach could violate the rules on the “reasonable disposal of sensitive documents.” But if the wrong document is destroyed, it could result in big fines and penalties. It could even mean willful destruction of evidence and a lost lawsuit. Then there’s not creating records in the first place. Many laws require creating records. And sometimes it’s just good policy to document everything from job applications to interview notes and disciplinary records – just in case – and then know when to toss them.

On November 8, discover how to toss all that HR paperwork clutter but keep lawsuit-proof “armor” when it comes to personnel records.

2: The New Rules for Religious Accommodations

HR & CE Webinars 105

Two recent Supreme Court decisions have completely upended how employers have to accommodate workers’ religious beliefs and practices. First, employers must show significant economic costs impacting business before turning down a request for time off to practice one’s religion. This means an explosion of requests for reasonable accommodations, growing co-worker resentment and massive management headaches for employers. Second, the Supreme Court recognized a new religious free speech right that may mean workers can refuse to perform job tasks they deem contrary to their sincerely held beliefs. Turning down those requests will also require employers to show substantial economic impact. 

EEOC complaints alleging religious discrimination, harassment and denial of reasonable accommodations for religious needs have skyrocketed almost 700% from 2,111 cases in 2021 to 13,814 cases in 2022!

Employers have brand-new legal obligations to reasonably accommodate workers expanding their families. The EEOC just announced expansive new proposed regulations that may require leave for everything pregnancy-related. Think infertility, stillbirth, abortion, menstruation, and maybe menopause leave. Plus, there’s a requirement that your pregnant employees be provided with reasonable accommodations that allow them to continue working up to giving birth. These reasonable accommodations can be something as simple as allowing late arrival for scheduled shifts due to morning sickness or providing unpaid leave after giving birth even if no paid leave is available or the employee isn’t eligible for unpaid FMLA leave.

HR & CE Webinars 107

The biggest mistake 80% of employers make is the use of a job description as their job ad. New job board rules are being enforced due to search engine optimization practices (SEO), artificial intelligence technology, and an influx of scam artists during the pandemic, forcing many employers to make changes they are not familiar with.

In this session we will cover the analogy of the Hiring Tree and discuss specific branches of the hiring process that will provide immediate results to attracting top talent, regardless of a looming recession.

HR & CE Webinars 113

It only takes a few toxic employees to make a workplace challenging for others. What’s an employer to do to maintain a great workplace for all while dealing properly and effectively with difficult employees? 

In today’s legal environment, employers can’t simply cast off every “difficult” employee or those who have personality clashes with co-workers. Such employees may still be adding great value to your organization.

But quietly tolerating toxic and malcontented employees is just begging for an employment lawsuit, and is guaranteed to lead to low morale and high turnover for your non-toxic workers. Stress to your HR team and managers that ignoring the problem is not a valid solution.

The Family and Medical Leave Act has been around for more than 25 years, but it’s still the most challenging and confusing part of an HR professional’s job. 

The law includes so many little compliance steps, notification rules and paperwork traps. And mistakes are costly. Since 2012, employee lawsuits claiming FMLA violations have more than tripled. And many of those cases result in million-dollar verdicts or settlements—all because of a simple FMLA mistake at the HR or manager level. Plus, your employees have become experts at playing the FMLA game to their advantage. (It’s nicknamed the “Friday-Monday Leave Act” for a very good reason!)

Interviewing takes skill. After all, research shows that one in three Americans admit to lying on their résumés. Eighty percent of those who lied were hired by the employers who interviewed them. Candidate selection now involves journalistic-style probing skills and being a savvy investigator to uncover candidate skills conducive to job excellence. 

Learn how to examine résumé information gaps, how to stray from the interview script by asking behavioral questions aligned with the job’s critical success factors, and how to identify résumé anomalies that could lead to a mis-hire.

When software can monitor employee keystrokes, scan facial expressions during interviews to determine trustworthiness, and utilize chatbots to reject applicants who do not meet specific requirements, discrimination risks escalate. Learn from comparable situations and precedents to make smart decisions moving forward.

Learn what actions have been filed against employers who are alleged to have gone too far, resulting in claims of discrimination. In the first EEOC AI case, a company used AI to screen applicants, resulting in 200 older workers not making the cut. The company will now pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to settle. More lawsuits are brewing.

Workspace Wonder Woman
HR & CE Webinars 118

Terminations of any kind are the biggest legal flash points for employee lawsuits. Just one mistake in the process — a discipline error, documentation slip-up or the wrong words in a termination meeting — can cost millions. Recent example: A jury awarded over $25 million to a regional manager who alleged she was wrongly fired and blamed for an incident involving the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks. And a black clerk at a Saks Fifth Avenue store claiming she was unfairly fired netted a jury award of $9.3 million.

Plus, you have to deal with the emotional fallout, risk of violence and co-worker morale.
