Recent Informational Opportunities for HR Practitioners

By Nancy Hammer Aug 5, 2016

From time to time, SHRM is advised of certain items and opportunities that could be of interest to our members dealing with certain public-policy matters. Here's a sampling of a few items of interest for your consideration this month. 

DOL Issues a New FMLA Resource

The Department of Labor, earlier this spring, issued a new guide to the FMLA aimed at helping employers navigate compliance. The publication, the Employer's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act walks employers and HR professionals through FMLA administration from beginning to end. It also provides examples of some of the typical leave requests and how to handle them. SHRM and several of our members reviewed the guide in draft form and offered suggested input to improve its value for HR professionals.

Fair Hiring Opportunity for Philadelphia-area SHRM Members

On August 18, 2016, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Philadelphia Works are hosting an event for HR professionals and employers to learn about successful strategies for hiring formerly incarcerated individuals. The mayor's office reached out to invite SHRM members to learn from your peers about the benefits of expanding your talent search to include individuals with criminal convictions, mitigating legal risks and accessing the city's PREP tax credit offering up to $10,000 per qualified hire.

A panel of legal experts and employers will be followed by open and candid conversation and networking. All in attendees must register via this link.
