Just How Big is the Risk?

Bigger Than You Might Think…

  • Each year, nearly two million employees are the victim of workplace violence (OSHA).
  • 10% of all fatal workplace injuries are the result of homicide (BLS).
  • Approximately 700 people are murdered on the job each year (OSHA).
  • Almost half of active shooter incidents took place in the workplace (FBI).

Learn Cutting-Edge Threat Management Strategies

  • The link between discrimination, harassment and bullying and workplace violence.
  • Recognizing the likelihood of an angry or disgruntled employee or former employee taking action for revenge.
  • The link between substance abuse and workplace violence.
  • Recognizing, documenting and taking preventative action in response to behavior that may progress to violence – perpetrators of violence often display warning signs of aggression in advance of committing acts of real violence.
  • The need for a crisis management team – this team should be comprised of HR, security and department supervisors to oversee the company’s workplace violence prevention initiative.
  • Creating an effective workplace violence prevention policy – a must for every California employer.
  • Protecting employees through education and training on how to react to workplace violence.
  • OSHA’s charge for workplace violence training requirements in all workplaces and how the General Duty Clause is being used to take action against employers that fail to protect their workers from recognized hazards of workplace violence.

Employment Eligibility Verification Program – Earn SHRM and HRCI Credits

san diego human resource program, shrm credits, hrci credits

Join Us for an Informative Presentation

Someone from Every Business Should Attend

Work Eligibility Verification, Form I-9 Compliance and E-Verify,

The Immigrant Worker Protection Act and ICE Enforcement

April 25, 2018

Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Presented by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

employment eligibility verification program

What This is About

In October 2017, Governor Brown signed laws making California a “Sanctuary State.”

The Immigrant Worker Protection Act (IWPA) was also enacted and took effect on January 1, 2018. This new law applies to both private and public California employers – big and small – and essentially requires California employers to do what the name of the law implies – protect their workers – from federal immigration enforcement agents. The new California law has left many employers feeling they are in a difficult and precarious position. California legislators have attempted to allay these feelings, stating that employers are not required to violate federal law.

California employers are required to comply with both federal and California laws, however, which means they need to know the laws.

This is Not a Game of Hide and Seek with Little Consequences

This is Serious Stuff, and It’s Complicated

The idea of being required by California law to refuse a request of federal law enforcement agents, restrict the movement of law enforcement agents in any way or tell federal law enforcement agents what they can and cannot do is not a comfortable situation for most business owners, human resource professionals, office managers and other business representatives.

Does someone at your business know EXACTLY what is required by federal law and what is required – and prohibited – by California law?

Does someone at your business know EXACTLY what your business is required to do according to both federal and California law if your business receives a Notice of Inspection or federal law enforcement agents show up?

Take Steps Now to Avoid the Risks Later

Why?

Because 72 hours is not a lot of time to figure out what to do and get it done right.

Penalties for noncompliance are hefty – up to $10,000 per violation of California law.

As for violations of federal law, the consequences can be dire.

The Costs . . .

More than $105 Million in Fines, Forfeitures and Restitution

Arrests, Indictments and Convictions of Business Owners and Managers

It has been reported that according to ICE, in 2017, it ordered businesses to pay $97.6 million in judicial forfeiture, fines and restitution and $7.8 million in civil fines. And, for example, out of a reported number of 1,360 audits in 2017, it made 139 criminal arrests and 172 administrative arrests, and 71 indictments resulting in 55 convictions of business owners and managers.

Making the situation even more daunting, California employers are reportedly now more likely to be targeted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents working to enforce federal law. The agency is expected to increase the number of Form I-9 audits it conducts each year and conduct more workplace raids similar to the ones reported in recent news reports.

Learn More

This program will provide businesses with information about voluntary compliance programs. Information about what employers can do to ensure compliance with employment eligibility laws and the E-Verify Process will be explained.

Who Should Attend:
• human resource professionals, office managers, and payroll professionals;
• business owners, executives, supervisors and managers; and
• everyone interested in learning how to keep their organization legally compliant.

Where: San Diego-Poway Hampton Inn and Suites – (corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and Stowe Dr. at 14068 Stowe Drive, Poway)

Cost (includes lunch): $55/person before March 30th, $65/person after. LMRC Ambassadors receive a $10 discount off of this price!

Sexual Harassment Prevention Training 20% Discount

sexual harassment training,

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

Romance is in the air.

Is it in your workplace, too?

 

Did you know that studies have shown nearly 50% of workers have had an “office romance?”

Many others have thought about it, but never acted on it or faced rejection.

So, yes, romance could be in the air.

Not all workplace romances cause problems, but just as any romantic relationship can present complications, romance in the workplace can do just that – complicate things. The challenges workplace romance can present are indeed serious.

  • Should employees who are romantically involved be permitted to work together on projects?
  • What if one person supervises the other? Should the supervisorial work relationship be permitted to continue?
  • What options do employers have in addressing workplace romance?
  • What performance issues and other implications can workplace romance cause?
  • What will happen if other employees suspect favoritism or resent what they consider to be displays of affection?
  • And, of course, there is the big question of what happens if the relationship comes to an end? Should the employees be separated? Can the role of an employee be changed?
  • What happens if a claim for sexual harassment is filed? Who can be held liable? Can the employer be held liable? Could supervisors and other employees face liability?

Concerns about workplace sexual harassment are not new. In 1991, televised coverage of Anita Hill’s testimony relating to her claim of sexual harassment against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during confirmation hearings on his nomination to the Supreme Court brought the topic of workplace harassment into the homes of virtually all Americans.

Many businesses are required to complete sexual harassment prevention training in 2017. Because we know love could be in the air, this is a good time to provide this training – too all employees.

To help your business meet its training requirements, we are offering a 20% discount on the cost of all training booked this week.

The Law and Management Resource Center strives to assist businesses by providing affordable training and helping in the following ways:

  • Employees will learn what types of behavior can cause them to be accused of harassment.
  • Supervisors will learn their overall responsibilities to help prevent workplace harassment.
  • Employees will learn what to do if they are accused of harassment.
  • And, employers will learn what to do if someone complains of harassment or suspicions of harassment arise.

Our highly praised, affordable Harassment Prevention Training is available both online and in person for supervisors and all employees. It is provided by our experienced employment law attorneys who are also human resource professionals and meets all California requirements.

Schedule your training and receive a 20% discount by registering before February 17th. Contact us today at (858) 753-1775 or info@lmrcenter.com.
