HR Conference: Changing Industry Landscape, Payroll, Employment Law, Benefit

The massive changes 2020 brought to where we work, how we learn, and the technologies we use to stay connected is escalating the importance of HR’s role within organizations. The 2020 was the big reset moment for HR.

As the pandemic resets major work trends, HR leaders need to rethink workforce and employee planning, management, performance and experience strategies.

As the age-old saying goes, "elections have consequences." For the first time in a decade, the democratic party has control of both chambers of congress, as well as the presidency. As a result of last November’s election, the federal government has seen a seismic shift in direction as policies and regulations from the previous Trump administration are reversed and the new Biden administration pushes new proposals aimed to dramatically affect the employment landscape. During this time, the federal courts have also been busy continuing to interpret old laws in surprising new ways. This session will discuss the change in administration and how it has impacted the agencies responsible for enforcing federal employment laws, as well as what employers need to be aware of to remain compliant in the year ahead.

This year, the virtual format will continue to bring together the HR community and provide HR professionals access to the latest trends, technologies, and best practices from some of the industry’s greatest thought leaders.

Whether you are a seasoned HR professional or you are new into a HR role, this conference is for you. You will hear from professionals, both HR practitioners as well as consultants, regarding the latest topics of interest in the world of HR. This CPE event is packed full with educational sessions, sponsor and exhibitor information, and networking opportunities.

In today's constant state of change, we are all looking for ways to grow, adapt, and remain resilient amid uncertainty. 

Discover how a growth mindset can set you up for success in 2022 and beyond by attending this CPE HR Conference.

Handling the difficult employee

Just about every workplace has at least one difficult employee.

A difficult employee is not just a problem between one employee and another. If one person makes life difficult for the company, discontent can fester and become a major distraction. The air of dissent affects everyone and can cause a dramatic decrease in productivity and the departure of other employees. If handled correctly, you have the power to diffuse the situation and return the team to productivity.

In this CPE session presentation, we will identify the various types of difficult employees and various strategies that can be used to deal with them.

Difficult employees can hurt the productivity and morale of the workplace. At times it is necessary to have critical conversations with these employees. These conversations occur when a lot is at stake and emotions run high. The behavior of these employees needs to be confronted. More than likely some of those that we must handle may be workplace bullies.

During the CPE/CPD session, we will learn the psychological makeup of these difficult individuals and how to have conversations with these employees while confronting their unproductive behavior.

Learning Objectives

  • To analyze how to identify the six types of difficult employees.
  • To discuss the appropriate strategies to use when dealing with a difficult employee.
  • To analyze various motivational strategies that will help the difficult employee change and become more productive.
  • To inspect the characteristics of the workplace bully.
  • To analyze how to deal with workplace bullies.
  • To develop the skills to have appropriate conversations with difficult employees.
  • To develop the skills to confront inappropriate employee behavior and identify other interventions to deal with difficult employees.

Avoid Liabilities-Perfect your Understanding of Payroll Tax Withholding

Understanding payroll taxes is difficult.

There remain many questions that some do not get clarity into. For instance:

How do I know how much to withhold? 

How often do I pay?

Which taxes do I withhold? 

Taxes are complex and making sure you are in compliance is very important. This is money that you are withholding from an employee’s wages and there are serious consequences for not paying these taxes.  Fines and penalties can be assessed for companies who fail to pay taxes properly to the extent that their business can be shut down.

As businesses grow and expand their liabilities can change. This often results in changes to how often they must pay. Not understanding this and knowing the rules of when to pay your taxes will result in notices and possible liens against your business. Laws constantly change and keeping up on payroll laws can be daunting. 

Attending this CE session will give you the basic knowledge of what to look for, where to find information, and how to keep in compliance. It will provide a better understanding of payroll taxes and how to avoid liabilities. Details of how to calculate taxes and what reports are required will be discussed along with how often they must be paid.

Whether you are new to processing payroll taxes or you are the owner trying to understand more about what you are paying you will want to attend this CE/CPE session and get a better understanding of the ins and outs of payroll tax withholding.

Key topics included in the CE/CPE session on payroll taxes are as follows:

  • Types of Payroll Taxes
  • Federal Tax Withholding Calculations/Payments

Employment Law – What will get you sued in 2022

Almost all businesses use some sort of employment law. Employment law is the area of law that governs the employer-employee relationship. Therefore, if the business has more than one employee, then the business likely uses employment law. This area is made up of both state and federal laws and includes many different subjects with the common goal to protect workers' rights. For employees, these laws work to:

Prevent discrimination

Promote health and safety

Establish a minimum required level for economic support

Prevent work disruption due to disputes between labor and management

Just one well-known example is Title VII. This is a federal statute included as a part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This famous law prohibits employment discrimination based on a person's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. This means that these aspects can't legally be considered when hiring, firing, promoting, compensating, or in any other aspect of employment.

Another well-known example is the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA. This crucial piece of federal legislation was enacted during the Great Depression when workers often suffered long hours, harsh conditions, and unjust pay. The FLSA established a federal minimum hourly wage and child labor laws for certain industries. When the FLSA was enacted in 1938, the minimum hourly wage was only $0.25. In 2020, the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Many states, however, have higher minimum wages than that set by the FLSA. Some state-mandated minimum wages are as high as $13.50 per hour (such as in Washington).

The speaker David Miklas will use recent, ripped-from-the-headlines examples of what employers are doing wrong. Learn from real-world examples of things that other businesses are screwing up in a COVID-19 world. This year includes the Biden presidency and changes with EEOC, DOL, NLRB, etc. In this online CPE course, topics will range from discrimination and harassment to retaliation and wage claims. 

This is what is really happening right now to employers!

Key topics covered in this online session:

  • Worker's compensation
  • Employment discrimination
  • Labor relations
  • Family and medical leave
  • Immigration
  • Employee benefits
  • Social Security
  • Wrongful termination
  • Occupational safety and health
  • ERISA
  • Minimum wages
  • Real life examples

Learning Objectives

  • What the biggest risks employers are taking in 2021 that will get them sued.
  • The biggest mistakes businesses are making when they fire employees in a post COVID world.
  • Simple things you can do IMMEDIATELY to reduce your chances of EEOC charges of discrimination and employment law litigation.
