This Friday, January 28, is The Proactive Employer Podcast's first anniversary! The podcast was launched on January 29, 2010. Since then, we've done our best to bring you the compliance and employment litigation risk management information you need in a format you can use. We've covered a wide array of topics, from Affirmative Action Plans to zoning issues for telecommuting employees. To celebrate our anniversary, we have a great installment lined up. Jonathan Hyman will be joining us to talk about ten issues of importance to every employer: 1. Documentation and document retention; 2. Applications, background checks and new hires; 3. Confidentiality; 4. Technology; 5. EEO: discrimination, harassment, and retaliation; 6. Wage and hour issues; 7. FMLA and benefits; 8. Immigration; 9. Health, safety, and security; 10. Evaluation, discipline, and termination. Mr. Hyman will be giving us some suggestions on best practices and on identifying potential problem areas. These ten issues are drawn from his proprietary 200-point audit of human resources and employment policies and practices. For listeners who are interested in discovering which areas of their business are out of compliance and open to legal risk, Mr. Hyman is willing to conduct this preliminary audit without charge.
