Where Have All The Manners Gone?

September 11, 20180

              We laugh at the workplace sarcasm found in cartoons, such as those created by Scott Adams of “Dilbert” fame, then perpetuate the sarcasm and uncouth behaviors by Sharing them on Facebook. We have seen t.v. shows, like The Office, with their parodies of life at work, including the exaggerated personalities we can all identify with: the bombastic, egotistical boss; the snarky busy body; the sarcastic sales dude; and the my-crisis-must-now-be-your-crisis co-worker. When the laughter ends and the t.v. is turned off, we sadly realize that these personalities and lack of good manners are what gobble up any sanity we have left when we are in our work environment and indeed make it an …

Time to Get Serious About I-9 Compliance: Part 2

July 18, 20180

Did you know that if ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) does an inspection of your I-9s, you can be penalized even if you do not have unauthorized aliens on your workforce? The penalties can come from errors on the I-9 forms. And if you lean towards apathy where I-9s are concerned, snap out of it before you are faced with one or more penalties that are regularly imposed on companies who are less than diligent in that area of their business. In case you did not read our HR blog from last month, the penalties can be per error, per employee! One news commentator said that your I-9 diligence should be equal to the diligence you have when dealing with …

Time to Get Serious About I-9 Compliance: Part 1

June 11, 20180

The Trump Administration has given the directive to hire 10,000 new ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents to keep employers and their hiring practices in check, while penalizing, and possibly arresting, those who violate I-9 regulations. With that many new agents on board, it is easy to see how the plan to conduct up to 15,000 I-9 audits this year can be done. 1 In a year where worksite investigations have already surpassed the number of investigations for all of 2017, 2018 may just be the harbinger of the new status quo. Not only have investigations doubled, but arrests associated with those investigations have quadrupled! Most of those arrested were workers, but it is still not clear if any employers …

If We Require Employees To Arrive Ten Minutes Early To Prepare For The Start Of Their Shift, Do We Have To Pay Them For This Extra Time?

June 6, 20180

Q: If we require employees to arrive ten minutes early to prepare for the start of their shift, do we have to pay them for this extra time? A: Yes. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (and likely state law as well), you must pay employees for all hours worked. This includes the time they are required to be on your premises, even if they haven’t begun their “regular” duties. Preparing for work—if it must be done at work—will be considered part of the employee’s continuous workday. You are certainly welcome to have an attendance and tardiness policy that requires employees to be at their desk or assigned location and ready to work exactly when their shift begins, and to …
