This presentation provides an in-depth look at the issues employers face on a daily basis regarding the Internet, e-mail usage, and social networking tools. These issues include the different mediums of social media that now exist and the related legal problems, for example, in the hiring of employees, communication and crisis planning, employee discipline, social media policies, post-employment scenarios, and other legal issues associated with social media. The legal implications of social media law are both new and constantly evolving, and it is important for your organization to have an understanding of the impact they can have on your business, both for legal reasons and clear employee communications.
Have you ever struggled to identify qualifying FMLA leaves and questioned how to respond appropriately? Recent high profile FMLA cases have demonstrated the dangers of violating the Act, with outcomes ranging from multi-million dollar settlements to managers and supervisors being held personally liable for paying damages. For this reason alone, employers should increase their efforts to understand the FMLA and be able to determine when it applies. This session will provide an in depth overview of FMLA, how to avoid common mistakes, and will offer attendees a structured approach to address leave compliance. With this knowledge attendees will be better equipped to navigate the complexities of FMLA and support their organization's compliance efforts.
Employers that offer company-sponsored employee healthcare benefits are facing an upswing in multifaceted challenges. Among the most daunting is the necessity to control costs, while providing competitive benefits that will help to attract, retain, and motivate the workers needed for their business to survive and succeed.
The need for meaningful and effective benefit tools that can be accessed when and where participants want them has become critical – both for empowering employees to make cost effective choices that also meet their unique needs, and to increase employee engagement and loyalty.
The ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, recently completed a survey of 501 decision makers from small, mid-size and large employers. These findings illustrate a need for increased benefits communications on behalf of employers, as well as the need for utilizing decision support tools and mobile applications to increase an employee’s knowledge of the suite of benefits to best address their individual needs.
This webinar will discuss trends in the use of benefits decision support tools along with a discussion on benefits communications – and the increasingly important role that the use of mobile applications plays.
The survey findings will address how companies plan on budgeting for increasingly complex communication requirements; the role of both mobile and other forms of direct access in supporting the strategic goals of engaging employees--while also proactively managing costs. We will discuss whether decision support tools are of value to employers and employees-- and what role such tools will play in the new world of Health Care Reform.
