Labor & Employment
Beyond recruiting and retaining employees and administering their benefits, Human Resources is often responsible for setting workplace policies, ensuring that various worksite standards are met, and addressing day-to-day employee issues. These resources are provided to help you manage the daily employment and policy issues common to most employers.
Federal law does not require an employer to provide benefits to employees. However, if an employer chooses to offer employee benefits, it must comply with many legal requirements. Benefits compliance can often be challenging as the requirements are complex and ever changing. These resources will help you understand what legal requirements apply to your company's benefit plans and what you need to do to be in compliance.
Workplace Safety & Accomodations
There are various regulations that employers must comply with to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all of their employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA), state workers compensation laws, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) all provide requirements that employers must observe to help ensure the safety of their employees. It is also advisable that employers have an Emergency Preparedness Plan. These informational resources can help you ensure that your employees are safe and ready for an emergency.
The Internal Revenue Code provides many opportunities for an employee to exclude certain expenses from gross income. This includes expenses related to child care, medical care, and transportation. An employer may choose to implement a group plan enabling employees to receive reimbursement for these expenses on a tax advantaged basis. The plan not only benefits the employee, but it also provides a tax advantage for the employer.
