Top HR Issues Business Owners Face – And How to Solve them @ Silicon Valley SCORE
Jun 13 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Let’s face it – HR is not getting any easier, and it can be especially challenging for smaller employers with limited resources. Join us for this educational seminar, where we’ll discuss some of the most critical areas you need to be aware of, particularly to avoid needless HR-related fines, penalties or lawsuits.

We’ll begin by covering 5 foundational laws that influence how you should be running your business:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Immigration Reform Control Act (IRCA)

Next, we’ll dive into 8 HR issues that can be complex for even the most seasoned HR pro, and strategic strategies you can follow in your business:

  • Job descriptions
  • Forms I-9
  • Classifying employees
  • Compensation
  • Employee handbook
  • Non-harassment policy
  • Discipline and termination
  • Anti-retaliation provisions

Finally, – we’ll wrap up the seminar with a chance for you to ask questions in the helpful summary and QA portion.
