Organizations today must comply with complex labor regulations set by various agencies. Yet many struggle to comply with government regulations like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or financial regulations like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) because they require a great deal of time consuming record keeping.

With a cloud-based system, you can track time accurately, decrease errors, improve financial reporting accuracy, provide a strong audit trail, and stay compliant with today’s complex labor laws.
In an effort to save costs, employers are moving toward a workforce increasingly comprised of independent contractors. Unfortunately, independent contractor classifications, when done incorrectly, can result in the violation of a host of employment laws (ranging from wage and hour laws to discrimination laws).
This fast-paced presentation will cover recent developments creating greater exposure and risk with respect to independent contractor classifications. The presentation will then address the multitude of laws that may be violated as the result of incorrect independent contractor classifications. We will address the numerous factors that go into determining whether a worker is correctly classified as an independent contractor. The presentation will then provide practical guidance to ensure that such problems are avoided in the future.
Time will be reserved for questions throughout the presentation.
Temporary, freelance and project-based workers are fast becoming a staple of the U.S. workplace and research suggests that around a third of all jobs are now temporary in nature.
While utilizing temporary labor can provide significant cost savings over taking on internal, direct hire workers, engaging temporary staff of all kinds can expose your company to significant risks....especially in the great state of California!
Our virtual conference - led by Emergent President, Bill Inman - will alert you to key CA compliance issues to watch out for and will show you how your company can mitigate these risks effectively.
Forty per cent of businesses plan on hiring temporary workers in 2013 and this number is likely to increase over the next few years as businesses realize the benefits of a more flexible workforce.
However, as the usage of temps and contractors grows, rules and regulations regarding the usage of these workers (and the associated litigation surrounding them) will continue to grow, both at a federal and state level.
In the current social and legal climate, workplace investigations are under the microscope. Retaliation claims have skyrocketed, whistleblowers are celebrated, Dodd-Frank provides a bounty payment, and there is an increased and growing attention to corporate misconduct.
When you start any workplace investigation, you need to consider that the process you follow in conducting that investigation and the conclusions that you reach will be subjected to thorough legal scrutiny and will also be evaluated by a jury, judge or arbitrator for its inherent fairness.
This 1 hour webinar program is designed to review the current legal trends in relation to the role of the investigator, cover how we should plan, conduct and conclude a workplace investigation and identify the best practices for appropriately documenting the investigation.
California employers are subject to various statutes governing allowing employee accommodations and leaves-of-absence. This highly-regulated area of law is a source of consternation for many, and the interaction and overlap of the various laws – including the Family Medical Leave Act, the California Family Rights Act, the Fair Employment & Housing Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and California’s Pregnancy Disability Leave Law – is a common area of confusion.
This presentation provides an overview of the relevant state and federal statutory framework and the obligations each imposes on California employers. We will discuss the ways in which these laws interact and overlap with one another. And, this presentation focuses on walking through an analysis of hypothetical situations to ensure that attendees understand the ways in which the laws are applied in realistic situations.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and looming regulatory changes that impact healthcare costs and liability for all US employers are causing organizations to rethink their workforce management strategies and technologies. New rules require greater visibility into the hours employees work, new strategies for planning schedules that adhere to the organization’s planned response to the ACA, and heightened levels of reporting at the individual, organizational, local and federal level. Without a solid strategic workforce management foundation and the right automated workforce management tools, organizations will struggle to comply and make the right choices when it comes to healthcare reform. In this webinar, Mollie Lombardi, vice president and principal analyst of Aberdeen Group’s Human Capital Management practice will share her latest research on workforce management strategy and technology.
ADP invites you to join us for our latest event in a series focused on Health Care Reform – the dos and don’ts in managing your workforce.
The Health Care Reform law (also known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Affordable Care Act, or the “ACA”) has created new obligations for employers, the full force of which will take effect in 2015. However, employers should be paying attention to these rules now. They will soon need to be in a position to make decisions that will have a direct impact on the healthcare they will be offering. In 2015 and beyond, the requirements of the ACA are extremely complex and its legal implications extend well beyond ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code.
