Getting promoted into a first-time supervisory role is exciting and scary. That’s because new managers rarely get the training they need to be successful. 

Success takes more than technical know-how or good luck. It’s about wisdom, motivational abilities and helping employees hold themselves accountable to reach new heights. It’s about knowing what to say and how to say it.

On January 27, join best-selling author and employee-relations guru Paul Falcone for an advice-packed training session that will help new managers successfully navigate their new leadership roles. Paul wrote a book on the subject, New Managers, part of the Paul Falcone Workplace Leadership Series published by HarperCollins. Everyone who signs up will receive a section from the book on “How to Become a Favorite Boss.”

We’re all familiar with exit interviews. But now, it’s more important to have those discussions before employees quit.

Studies show that companies that conduct Stay Interviews benefit from a higher percentage of engaged, motivated employees, with lower turnover. Learn how to stop those exit interviews by examining what excites employees, what annoys them and what your company can do to retain their services.

Now is a critical time to put Stay Interviews into practice. According to a recent Gallup report, more than half of workers who quit during the last year say nobody talked to them in those final months about how they were feeling about their jobs.

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. 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 US. 

Your only protection against serious financial penalties—and even criminal prosecution—is strict compliance with all these changing rules. On January 25, take time to make sure your employment verification practices comply with all the new federal and state changes in this timely new webinar.

20: New Overtime Rules: Prepare Now for Compliance

More than 70% of employers are currently violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in one way or another, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. It’s best to identify your mistakes BEFORE a government agency or employee lawsuit does it for you! Are you absolutely sure you understand how to accurately classify employees, track hours, pay overtime, keep records and comply with other federal and state wage laws?

The bottom line: All overtime audits depend on the quality of your records. Bad records will sink you every time. And while it’s more important than ever to stay in compliance, it’s also more complex.

Uncertainty is the watchword for filing Forms 1099-NEC this year. The IRS is still finalizing changes to the e-filing rules, under which the mandatory e-filing threshold will drop to 100 or more information returns, from 250 returns. And you’ll be required to add up all your 1099s, W-2s and 1095s to see if you meet the 100-return threshold. The year after that, the mandatory e-filing threshold drops to 10 or more information returns. That means you and every department in your company that files information returns will have to jump through new hoops. Penalties have more than doubled for filing returns in the wrong medium or for filing incorrect returns.

As laws and regulations changed rapidly during the pandemic, keeping your employee handbook in strict compliance was a struggle. In recent months, important rulings from the Supreme Court require you to rethink your policies and practices on weapons, healthcare, religious expression and military service policies. Plus, employers may need to start rethinking their DE&I policies depending on what happens this term!

Missing (or poorly worded) policies can quickly lead to an expensive lawsuit. And your C-suite expects you to keep every word in your handbook up-to-date.

Every HR department should start the new year with this simple checklist of the crucial changes you need to make to your employee handbook.

Handling Form 1095 isn’t so difficult anymore, right? Wrong! This winter, two new developments will add to the complexity and risks of complying with your Affordable Care Act mandate to report offers of group health coverage to your full-time employees on Form 1095.

Is your organization ready? Who has to file these forms this year? Which forms do you file—1095-C or 1095-B? What are the new deadlines? Must all employees be given the forms? What counts as an “offer of insurance”? What is an authoritative transmittal?

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 January 11, discover how to toss all that HR paperwork clutter but keep lawsuit-proof “armor” when it comes to personnel records.
