Presentation DescriptionsSocial Media: The Impact of Facebook and Google on the Workplace
With predictions that Facebook will have 1 billion users by September 2012, employers need to understand the benefits and risks of using social media in making workplace decisions. This presentation provides practical answers to the most challenging social media questions that employers are currently facing, such as: Should you have a social media policy? Is it possible to draft one that complies with the NLRA’s requirements? What are the risks to researching applicants and employees online? Should managers be permitted to “friend” subordinates? When should you discipline or terminate an employee based upon Facebook postings? We will provide answers to these questions and address the legal ramifications of making employment decisions based upon employees’ use of social media. The Affordable Health Care Act
Health Care Reform has survived a major challenge in the courts. In the aftermath, employers and their businesses must now brace for compliance with the most significant changes yet to come. Don’t let your business be surprised. This action-oriented and informative presentation will help you to gain a better understanding of what health care challenges lie ahead and what should be done now.The Fair Labor Standards Act: Are You in Compliance?
It is essential for all supervisors, in addition to the Human Resources’ staff, to understand how to comply with the FLSA and equivalent state laws -- particularly with the explosion of FLSA litigation in recent years. Employers need to train new and retrain current supervisors on these laws to ensure complete and correct compliance. Our presentation covers a variety of FLSA key-topics, including but not limited to, travel time, preliminary and postliminary work, meal and rest periods, the "de minimus" concept, waiting time and the continuous workday rule. We will review the differences between class and collective actions and the practical consequences of both. We will also discuss the practical costs and consequences of FLSA litigation and, perhaps more importantly, how to avoid it.
The program has been submitted to the PA Continuing Legal Education Board (CLE) and HR Certification Institute (HRCI) for review. The briefings are complimentary and there is no fee to attend, but registration is required.
