Ammu Warrier, President(DCR Workforce Solutions)

When asked to describe their Human Capital Management (HCM) program, most companies will discuss the management of labor-related issues that impact their strategic and operational objectives, including: the employment of people; the development of resources; the alignment of resources with job and organizational requirements; and the compensation of employees. Further probing tends to indicate that corporate HCM initiatives tend to exclusively focus on permanent employees, even though temporary workers represent a class of workers that are rapidly growing in numbers and strategic significance!

This session will explore HCM, and associated Human Capital Management systems, when applied to a company’s ‘adjacent workforce’ of agency contractors, SOW-based project teams, independent contractors, and student interns.

You will learn how to overcome the challenges of

•       Managing initiatives that combine multiple worker classes
•       Tracking time worked and/or deliverables completed by the adjacent workforce
•       Complying with government regulations and corporate policies that apply to each worker class
•       Selecting and using technology that will unify talent management issues such as procurement; onboarding and off-boarding; and time and expense planning.
•        Consolidating data from disparate HCM systems to create a unified view of ‘adjacent’ talent usage, then using this data for critical decision-making when selecting the best approaches to program and project staffing.

Ammu Warrier, a recognized expert in the procurement and management of contingent workers, will provide practical advice - based on real-life examples - of how to manage the tasks and work schedules of different types of temporary workers within a company’s ‘adjacent workforce’ while still complying with government regulations and corporate policies that apply to each worker class. She will also describe how to best leverage HCM systems and applications for effective workforce planning and management.

Tammy D. McCutchen, Shareholder(Littler Mendelson)

Employee claims for unpaid overtime continue to be the most significant employment liability risk for employers across the country. FLSA lawsuits filed in federal courts have increased by 347% in the last decade. Last year, the U.S. Department of Labor collected a record $280 million in back wages, more than double the back wages collected in 2009. Yet, many claims for “off-the-clock” work and “regular rate” violations are fully preventable – or at least winnable – by implementing best practice timekeeping and payroll processes.

Overtime lawsuits can be won or lost based on the employer’s time and payroll records. Time and payroll records, for example, can reveal non-compliant rounding practices, unpaid pre- and post-shift work, meal break violations, improper deductions, and bonuses not properly included in the regular rate. But, with best practices, those same records can provide the evidence needed to prove that employees where paid for all hours worked, and their overtime pay was calculated correctly. Your timekeeping and payroll systems can be your worst enemy or your best friend – do you know what overtime violations are lurking in your timekeeping and payroll systems?

In this session, Tammy McCutchen, a former Administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division, will demonstrate how you can quickly review time and payroll records to uncover potential wage-hour violations – using examples drawn from actual time punch records and pay stubs she has reviewed during pay practice audits. For example, comparing time punches in your timekeeping system to the hours actually paid shown in the payroll system can reveal rounding violations or unpaid pre-shift work. Reviewing pay stubs can uncover compensation that is not being properly included in the regular rate. Find potential improper deductions by reviewing a list of deduction codes from your payroll system. Ms. McCutchen will also recommend best practice timekeeping processes, and discuss how to overcome the challenges you may face in implementing best practices.
