STAY UP TO DATE ON EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES

By Carol Nibley

With an ever-changing legal landscape, it’s more important than ever to stay up to date on employment laws and best practices. Whether you are a business owner, human resources professional, or manager of other employees, I recommend selecting one or two HR e-newsletters or blogs to follow each week.  This will be a 15-30 minute weekly investment that could potentially save many hours and dollars in the future.  Here are a few of my favorites:

BLR Daily Advisor                                                              http://hrdailyadvisor.blr.com

Workforce Week                                                             http://www.workforce.com

HR Hero                                                                               http://www.hrhero.com

Employment Law Information Network                 http://www.elinfonet.com

This practice may not guarantee you’ll stay out of court or avoid an audit by the Department of Labor,  but it should go a long way to preventing some of the common triggers that get employers in trouble.  And, you may find a few best practice ideas that can help improve performance and morale in your organization.
