10 HR Compliance Trends to Watch in 2018 (Part 1)

10 HR Compliance Trends to Watch in 2018 (Part 1)

In 2017, states and local jurisdictions passed dozens of laws that affect the way employers hire, pay, schedule, and provide benefits to their employees. A new administration also entered the White House, ushering in new rules and different interpretations of existing rules. Here are the first five of 10 HR compliance trends to watch in 2018. #1: Restrictions on Salary History Inquiries Four states and four local jurisdictions have passed laws that restrict employers from making inquiries into an applicant’s pay history during the hiring process (under the premise that pay history may reflect discriminatory pay practices of a previous employer).

Axios, a site dedicated to providing vital news in business, politics, tech, energy and health care, has published an article in their Future of Work column titled, “Americans are still pretty flexible about changing jobs.” The article states that even if jobs are available in other parts of the country, a lot of people just don’t want to, or feel they cannot, move. But they are pretty flexible at least in one respect, the willingness to change jobs. According to the ADP Workforce Vitality Report, job-switching is at an all-time high, with 27% saying in the third quarter of the year that they were in the midst of changing employment (up from 23% in the first quarter of 2015). And 63% said they are actively or passively looking for new jobs. Read the full article...

Brrr…It’s Cold Outside! Winter Safety Hazards and How to Avoid Them

Colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours in winter months can result in workplace hazards, especially for employees who work outdoors or who drive as a part of their job. On icy days, walking to and from the company parking lot can pose risk. Here are some steps you can take to help protect employees. #1: Check heating, insulation, and ventilation systems. Ensure proper heating, insulation, ventilation, and humidity in indoor environments and monitor these systems regularly. Consider prohibiting space heaters in the workplace, which can increase the risk of fire. Make sure thermometers are placed in all areas in which workers are exposed to cold temperatures and shield workers from drafty or windy conditions. #2: Require proper clothing for work conditions. Instruct employees who work in cold conditions to dress in layers so that they may adjust to changing conditions and to wear a hat, gloves, and insulated boots. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends employers wear at least three layers: (1) an inner layer made of...
