I’m relatively new to ACCR’s HR Update email service but must say thus far, it’s the greatest! I think it’s safe to say that all HR professionals are pressed for time but are also interested in keeping in step with changes as they happen, so when ACCR provides a brief snapshot on various topics of interest, it’s quick and easy reading, and greatly appreciated! Should something of special interest appear, just a point and click brings up an informational brief, right at my fingertips! Thanks so much for the service!

Description

The laws governing employee benefits are very detailed and very complex. Benefits take many forms, from simple holiday pay to complicated pension plans, this guide is intended to provide a well-rounded overview of the complex principal laws that apply when an employer provides benefits for its employees. 

From basic definitions to information on particular types of benefits, this guide covers what you need to know to stay in compliance. Have you ever asked a question like this:

• Are my benefits plan subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act?
• What are the advantages of group health plans?
• How will the Health Care Reform Act affect my coverage?
• When should severance be paid?
• What health care coverage is available for recently terminated employees?

Providing your employees with benefits can open you up to discrimination claims under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Age Discrimination and Employment Act (ADEA). That’s why this publication includes in-depth explanations, tips for compliance, and a break down of benefit types to keep your business out of trouble.

Description

This guide walks you through the many complicated procedures associated with verifying the work authorization of your workers and maintaining a business that is in compliance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). As an employer, you are responsible for verifying that every individual on your workforce is eligible to work in the United States – that means paperwork and lots of it!

Completing the Form I-9 is a crucial step in the employment process, but one that is riddled with pitfalls for employers. Have you ever asked a question like this:

• Where do I get the I-9 form?
• Who do I submit it to?
• Which documents can be used to complete the I-9? Passports? Driver’s licenses? Do they count?
• How can I be sure that I am filling the form out correctly? 
• What if I have employees who have worked for me prior to November 6, 1986?

Failure to complete the Form I-9 correctly can lead to costly penalties. That is why this publication includes tips and tricks, forms, checklists, and more to keep you out of trouble and in compliance with the law. 

This publication also includes important information on other employment verification issues. Check out these topics if you are unfamiliar with employment verification or want to brush up on what’s important:

• Do you make photocopies of the identification documents provided by your employees?
• Do you know what to do if an immigration officer has a warrant for the arrest of an employee? 
• Do you inform an employee of a Further Action Notice and give an opportunity to contest?

I’m relatively new to ACCR’s HR Update email service but must say thus far, it’s the greatest! I think it’s safe to say that all HR professionals are pressed for time but are also interested in keeping in step with changes as they happen, so when ACCR provides a brief snapshot on various topics of interest, it’s quick and easy reading, and greatly appreciated! Should something of special interest appear, just a point and click brings up an informational brief, right at my fingertips! Thanks so much for the service!
