    Beat The Heat: Dealing with FMLA and ADA Hotspots

    in Business

    According to a recent poll, HR managers say that dealing with time off and leave issues is their #2 concern, second only to recruitment and retention. The laws governing leave and time off issues are very complex, and there are no clear-cut answers to leave and time off questions. Usually, the answer is "it depends," because each situation is unique and has to be evaluated based on its own specific facts.
    We can't give you the answers to every leave and time off question you may have, but we can give you some practical insight into some common situations and how to deal with compliance hotspots.
    In this episode, we talk about FMLA and ADA recordkeeping requirements, employee eligibility and leave entitlements, job restoration, medical certifications, accommodations, and key exceptions. We also talk about some new guidance issued by the Department of Labor, and how employers may be affected by recent employee outreach programs sponsored by the DOL.
    Our guest for this episode is Jeff Nowak, Co-Chair of Franczek Radelet's Labor and Employment Practice. He represents private and public sector management clients in all areas of labor and employment law. He has extensive experience dealing with the FMLA and ADA, including counseling clients on compliance, conducting audits and training, and litigating FMLA and ADA lawsuits. HE also authors the well-respected FMLA Insights blog, which was named one of the Top Legal Blogs of 2011 by the ABA Journal. Jeff's blog assists employers in administering FMLA leave and understanding their obligations under the FMLA.

    Why Discredit Mormon History?

    in The Bible

    Why Discredit Mormon History?
    Angry retort of those who "wear stiff necks and high heads" and who persecute the humble followers of Christ with their worldly learning.  Attempt by these to destroy the faith by discrediting testimonies recorded concerning Joseph Smith teaching this doctrine to Brigham Young and others in Nauvoo. Denial of the Holy Ghost in attributing the Adam God doctrine as taught by Brigham Young to mere opinion.
    There has been in this century the temptation to dismiss large parts of Mormon history as unreliable. This mentality has relegated the teachings of 50 years of Mormon Prophets to the realms of mythology and fiction. Ironically, it is not a question of accurate recordkeeping, but a disagreement with the doctrines taught by those prophets. Primarily, it is Brigham Young whose integrity as a prophet of God has been disputed. Why is this being done and who is behind it? The Prophet Brigham's doctrinal teaching that Adam is our Heavenly Father is at the heart of this calculating, and it is the unbelief of the Latter-day Saints which has taken Brigham from his calling as Prophet of God, and demoted him to a bungling fool. Simply stated, today we are led to believe that Brigham was misquoted, or only expressing his opinion, and we are taught that the Adam-God doctrine is false. However, a more careful consideration of history reveals that it was Joseph Smith, not Brigham Young, who unveiled the Adam-God doctrine. Brigham was merely being faithful to that which was given him through Joseph.  Adam God by Craig Tholson
