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.

Cybercrime in the Workplace

cybercrime in the workplace

September 29th – Don’t Miss This Program

It Could be One of the Most Valuable Seminars You Attend

According to the FBI, the impact of cybercrime is staggering. Billions of dollars are lost each year repairing systems attacked through cybercrime. Attacks have disrupted and disabled the operations of businesses, hospitals, banks, 9-1-1 services, school districts, and government and law enforcement agencies.

A particularly disturbing aspect of cybercrime has to do with ransomware, an insidious type of malware that encrypts or locks valuable digital files. After malware is installed, demands that an individual or entity pay a ransom to release the malware may follow. The inability to access important data, loss of sensitive or propriety information, disruption of regular operations, enormous financial losses incurred to restore systems and files, and the potential harm to an organization’s reputation can be catastrophic. Ransomware attacks are not only proliferating, but are also becoming extremely sophisticated.

Cybercrimes involving identity theft and online predators continue to rise worldwide. The number of individuals who have been impacted is truly alarming.

We encourage you to attend our special cybersafety workshop on September 29th and learn how you can protect your business and personal information from cyber-attack.

Attackers and their motives are extremely diverse. Some attackers are computer geeks, some are businesses attempting to garner a particular market by hacking competitor websites, some are criminal rings attempting to steal the personal information of individuals, and some are terrorists trying to obtain vital information of our nation.

The FBI has divided computer intrusion cases into three categories: counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal. These cases are of paramount importance to the FBI. As a result, new technologies have been developed and new investigative partnerships have been formed for the purpose of preventing attacks and finding perpetrators of cybercrime.

This could be one of the most important and valuable programs you attend all year!

When: September 29th – noon to 1:30 p.m.; registration and networking start at 11:30 a.m.

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

Cost (includes lunch): $50/person (LMRC Ambassadors receive a $10 discount off of these prices)

This program is co-sponsored by the Poway Business Park Association and
San Diego-Poway Hampton Inn & Suites.

Let the Law and Management Resource Center help you ensure your business is in compliance. We provide affordable employment law and human resource consultation, review and draft employer documents, policies, and employee handbooks, and provide effective harassment and abusive conduct prevention training.

New Minimum Salary Requirement

exempt or overtime pic

Effective December 1, 2016, the minimum salary requirement for so-called “white collar” exempt employees in California will increase from California’s current minimum requirement of $800 per week to $913 per week – a new standard under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Reports from the United States Department of Labor indicate that the salaries of almost 10% of California employees currently classified as exempt are below the new federal minimum salary rate.

With California’s minimum wage scheduled to increase to $10.50 in 2017 (there is a 1 year implementation delay for employers with fewer than 26 employees), the effective minimum salary requirement for exempt employees according to federal law in 2017 will equate to $3,796 more annually than the minimum salary required to classify employees as exempt from overtime per California law. California employers are required to meet the requirements of both state and federal laws. In addition, if approved by voters on June 7th, the minimum wage for workers in San Diego will increase to $10.50 per hour effective immediately upon certification of the election results and $11.50 per hour effective January 1, 2017.

Employers have two options for compliance by December 1st:

1. Change the status of employees classified as exempt not receiving the required minimum salary per federal law to nonexempt. Employers that choose this option will be required to maintain work time and meal break records for these employees and provide overtime pay to these employees, if applicable.
2. Pay all subject employees the minimum salary requirement set forth by the new federal law.

Certain pay strategies could prove helpful to employers in managing necessary changes. The new federal law allows employers to satisfy up to 10% of the minimum salary threshold through nondiscretionary bonuses and commissions provided such bonuses or commissions are paid at least quarterly. And, some employers may find it helpful to institute alternative workweeks schedules in the workplace.

Now is also a good time to review employee classifications and assess the positions of employees just at or slightly above the 50% exempt duties threshold.

Join us on July 14th for an informative presentation with Senior Deputy Labor Commissioner Linda Aguilar

When: Noon; registration and networking start at 11:30 a.m.

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

Cost: $40/person on or before June 10th; $50/person after June 10th (LMRC Ambassadors receive a $10 discount off of these prices);
