Contractor safety is a significant issue because contract and contingent workers are disproportionately likely to be injured or killed on the job. The financial and legal risks for employers are also considerable. OSHA/MSHA can issue dual citations, depending on the circumstances present, injuries can result in tort litigation unless the worker can be classified as a borrowed employee or the company can be deemed the statutory employer. Increasingly, individual managers are also sued under the torts of negligence training or supervision. This program will discuss OSHA/MSHA and tort theories of liability, the IRS classification system, new data on the safety of contingent workers, and workers' compensation issues. It will also discuss how to proactively prequalify contractors, and coordinate training and other program activities to improve overall workplace safety.

This panel will walk attendees through the top employee benefits issues that commonly arise in an M&A transaction (including 401(k) and other qualified plans, health and welfare plans and executive compensation plans) and give practical tips for handling these issues on a proactive basis, starting with due diligence and continuing through and after the deal has closed.

With so many different types of HR software in use, it’s hard to make useful business decisions based on all of the data that’s available to us. This is because all of these pieces of software have their own reporting systems, and almost none of them are able to communicate with each other.
The Tin Can API changes that. It’s a language that all HR, training, and learning platforms can speak, so they can share one common reporting system and help you learn things about your organization that weren’t possible before—including correlating real-world performance data with learning and HR data.

The webinar will include demos of commercial video games, discussion of specific game mechanics within games, and even an opportunity to play a simple, Enspire-created game during the session. Webinar participants are encouraged to have a phone capable of sending text messages with them during the session.
