Real HR Issues: Managing and Calculating Intermittent Leave
 
Navigating The Family Medical and Leave Act (FMLA) can be a complicated process. FMLA includes many rules and regulations. The simple explanation is as follows; employees who work for a company that is required to provide FMLA are entitled to take twelve weeks of unpaid leave under FMLA over a twelve month period (or 26 weeks in a single twelve-month period for military caregiver leave) if they have been working for the company for at least twelve months prior to requesting leave and if they have worked at least 1,250 hours over that period. To make matters even more confusing, employees are also able to take intermittent FMLA leave when necessary.

Pregnancy in the Workplace: Accommodating Employees while Adhering to the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act
 
The Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADAAA) protects a broader range of people than many managers realize; it also protects individuals with less permanent disabilities, such as pregnancy. Many states have their own guidelines and rules regarding reasonable accommodation, but there are a few small things that managers can do to avoid pregnancy discrimination without deeply investigating their own state laws.

Why is Safety Culture the Cure?
 
A dealership injury or fatality has the power to sweep people into a frenzy. While national media covers high profile fatalities, little attention gets paid to the minor injuries occurring on a daily basis. Minor injuries are, however, the type of injury businesses deal with on a daily basis, and amount to 4.1 million incidents a year. When a death occurs at the workplace a spotlight shines on the issue of employee safety, but after two days, the story is forgotten, and injuries continue to burden dealerships. With the proper education and training you can decrease injuries substantially by implementing a positive safety culture.

Turning off Disaster – Avoiding Catastrophe with Simple Solutions
 
Accidents in the workplace have always plagued businesses. Some might say accidents are inevitable, but usually, even the most serious catastrophes have a simple preventable solution. Unfortunately, minor neglect does not only lead to minor problems. Sometimes the most disastrous events occur as a result of something as simple as overlooking a step on the checklist or leaving a tool on when closing down the dealership in the evening.

Is Your Information Safeguards Plan Keeping Up With Technology?
 
Every day dealerships collect personal information from consumers, including names, addresses, credit history, phone numbers, bank numbers, and Social Security information. The federal Safeguards Rule, enacted in 2003 and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, requires dealerships to have a security plan in place that will sufficiently protect client’s confidential information.

Federal Trade Commission Crack Down – Are you in Compliance?
 
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other government entities have taken an increased interest in dealership practices and have intensified enforcement and arrests over the past 16 months. They have specifically focused on deceptive and illegal practices by auto dealers. Fraudulent activity comes in a variety of forms and can be mistakenly or intentionally committed. For many years I worked in a dealership myself, and what I learned over that time is that fraudulent activities can be occurring under the nose of management, whether it’s unintentional or deliberate. Unfortunately, whether you know that these activities are happening or not, your dealership is still at risk for prosecution if illegal activity is occurring.
