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
  • 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.

Enterprise Performance Management for Not for Profit and Government

Although the objective of Not for Profit (NfP) organizations is not to make a profit they still need to manage and ideally improve their performance. Government organizations at all levels and of all types are facing intense pressure to do more with less. Federal, national, provincial, state, county, municipal, and local governments in almost all the countries in the world are feeling some sort of fiscal squeeze. Pressures on governments around the world are forcing them to adopt “performance management” – a focus on accountability for outputs and outcomes rather cries for higher inputs (i.e., more budget funding and employees).

Enterprise performance management (EPM) is the seamless integration of managerial methods. They include balanced scorecards, strategy maps, budgets, activity-based cost management (ABC/M), risk management, forecasts, and resource capacity planning.  EPM methods have been hailed as the new salvation for aligning an organization’s resources with its strategy to drive the actions of their managers and employee teams.

Similar to commercial businesses NfP and government organizations always have limited resources. So, they need essential information to determine where to best spend their money.

The message to government is: better, faster, cheaper – hold the line on taxes but don’t let service slip. The imperative on governments for improved cost and yield management, planning, and budgeting can be met by enhancing cost accounting information. Fact-based data, robust analytics, accurate forecasts, and trade-off (what-if scenarios) are essential for strategy formulation, privatization and outsourcing studies, fee-based cost recovery systems, and competitive bidding.

This presentation by a leading practitioner and author will cover:

  • How strategy maps and their companion balanced scorecards communicate strategic objectives with target-setting to help cross-functional employee teams align their behavior to the strategy and better collaborate.
  • Why measures of citizen (government) and stakeholders (NfP) value are shifting from products and services to citizen-focused and stakeholder-focused organizations. 
  • How activity-based costing (ABC) provides not only accurately traced calculated costs (relative to arbitrary broad-averaged cost allocations), but more importantly provides cost transparency back to the work processes and consumed resources, and to what drivers cause work activities.
  • Reforming the broken annual budgeting process with performance based budgeting that links strategy to operations and is process volume sensitive rather than simply incremental at each cost center.
  • Why business analytics, with emphasis on predictive analytics and pro-active decision making, is becoming a competitive advantage differentiator and an enabler for trade-off analysis. 
  • How all levels of management can quickly see and assess how they are doing on what is important – typically with only a maximum of three key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • How to integrate performance measurement scorecards and ABC/M data with:

o Strategy formulation.

o Process-based thinking and operational productivity improvement.

o Channel/citizen/stakeholder spending and value analysis.

o Supply chain management.

o Quality and lean management (Six Sigma, cost of quality).

Learning Objectives

  • How to view enterprise and corporate performance management (EPM/CPM) as the seamless integration of managerial methods rather than as a process.
  • Understand how business analytics is an advance over business intelligence and where Big Data fits in.
  • How to identify and differentiate strategic KPIs in a balanced scorecard and operational performance indicators (PIs) in dashboards.
  • How to properly calculate product, service-line, channel, and citizen related costs for analysis, insights and actions.
  • How to perform “predictive accounting” for driver-based budgets / rolling financial forecasts, what-if analysis, and outsourcing decisions 
  • How to overcome implementation barriers such as behavioral resistance to change and fear of being held accountable.
  • 3 General credit of for all Accountant
  • 1 CPE credit of for all CMA
  • 1 CPE credit of Finance for all CPA (US)
  • 1 CE credit of for all CFIRS
  • 1 CE credit of for all CWS
