Digital public sector recordkeeping is one of the unsung cornerstones in the open government and open data discussion.
Dr Anne Thurston talks about past and current challenges of digital recordkeeping and preservation for government - particularly in developing countries. She also highlights how the open government movement holds opportunities for the public sector recordkeeping profession.
David Ferriero is the 10th Archivist of the United States and Head of the National Archives and Record Administration, including the Presidential Libraries. The collection includes some 12 billion pages and 40 million photos and now holds all Federal Government tweets.

"According to the NOAA National Climatic Data Center's "State of the Climate: National Overview for June 2012" report released Monday, the 12-month period from July 2011 to June 2012 was the warmest on record (since recordkeeping began in 1895) (every) state in the contiguous U.S. except for Washington saw warmer-than-average temperatures during this time period. The period from January to June of this year also has been the warmest first half of a year on record for the U.S. mainland."
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.
Are we making ourselves victims in our own drama? What event do we need to convince that urgent action is needed?

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
Join Joanne Westwood Social Media Consultant at Westwoodva.com when she interviews Darlene Mack is the CEO & Managing Partner of HR Partners International and has insight on everyone employment related - There are more than 500 new pieces of employment-related legislation passed each year, so how do you ensure that your organization is in full compliance? In today’s litigious society, the days of depending upon “Accounting” or “our COO” to keep you legal and current in HR matters is risky business and beyond the scope of those positions. Our West Chester/Liberty area is home to many businesses considered “small business” in size. Yet, in today’s competitive climate, all companies no matter their size must operate within the confines of a heavily-regulated employee environment. Given the fact that many small businesses may not have a functional HR department, it is only in retrospect that many companies learn the monetary costs of ignoring these “hot HR legal buttons.” Noncompliance problems can be, and frequently are, the basis for significant financial risk. Ignorance of the law or sloppy recordkeeping is not an adequate defense in court, so learn the regulations that apply to your company.
Are you ready for a desk audit? The OFCCP’s Active Case Management (ACM) was replaced by Active Case Enforcement on January 1. There are five main differences between ACM and ACE:
(1) Compliance evaluation – under ACM, the compliance review method was used. Under ACE, all compliance evaluation methodologies – including the compliance check – will be used;
(2) Size of protected group – ACM focused on cases of systemic discrimination where there were ten or more affected class members. ACE does not have a minimum number of affected class members;
(3) Desk audits – under ACM, desk audits were performed only when there was an indication of discrimination, or alternatively, in every 25th review. Under ACE, all compliance evaluations will begin with a full desk audit;
(4) Evidence of discrimination – anecdotal and statistical evidence were considered under ACM. ACE considers anecdotal and statistical evidence, but also looks at patterns of individual discrimination, technical violations (for example, recordkeeping and records retention) and failure to comply with other laws;
(5) Onsite reviews – Under ACM, onsite reviews were limited to the indicators triggering the review. Under ACE, onsite reviews will be comprehensive and not limited in scope.
In this week’s installment of The Proactive Employer podcast, we’ll be discussing the differences between Active Case Management and Active Case Enforcement in more detail, and talk about what this change means for employers.
