Cafeteria plan administration (EB230W - 2 CEU Credits)

Do you offer a Cafeteria Plan? For the vast majority of employers the answer is YES. Pretax premium deductions, pretax medical reimbursement accounts, and pretax dependent care accounts are among the most common forms of cafeteria plans. But many employers fail to appreciate the complexity of the rules and practical issues that go along with a cafeteria plan. For example, did you know that you can’t necessarily drop an employee’s pretax health insurance premium deduction just because they drop their health insurance?

Effective strategies for recruiting and retaining employees (HR140W - 1.5 CEU Credits)

As the unemployment ratings improve and the hiring pendulum begins to swing back to pre-recession hiring demands, employers of all sizes are having to rethink their recruiting and hiring strategies. These strategies are compounded by the changing workplace demographics as more Baby Boomers plan for retirement and more Millennials enter the workforce. As a result, employers are searching for effective strategies to recruit, engage and retain their organization’s most valuable resource — their employees. Employer strategies involve being proactive, delivering a strong corporate brand, utilizing technology efficiently, building and leveraging the right relationships and knowing how to manage your candidate pool (from engaging and screening to closing your candidates).

Harassment and other workplace investigations (HR251W - 1.5 CEU Credits)

When it comes to sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination, the stakes are high. Employers face liability when employees engage in unlawful harassment and discrimination if the employer fails to take prompt and appropriate remedial action. The stakes are even higher when a supervisor engages in unlawful harassment or discrimination. With retaliation claims rising more than 30% over the last decade, employers must also ensure there is no retribution against the employee who brought forth the complaint.
