Posted by Derek L McIntyre on Aug 1, 2019 5:13:58 PM

Gone are the days of workers toiling away for a check at the end of the week – just thankful to have a job. With the advent of the internet and broad, real-time access to social media networks and job boards, employers are no longer in the driver’s seat. Employees today expect fair pay for a fair day’s work along with a host of other requirements.

What Can Employers Expect from the DOL After Leadership Changes?

Posted by TimeClock Plus on Jul 31, 2019 2:28:20 PM

Former Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta resigned after facing scrutiny over his involvement in securing a plea deal for sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Patrick Pizzella, the previous labor deputy secretary, became acting secretary on July 20, and President Donald Trump named management-side attorney Eugene Scalia as his pick to permanently fill the role. So what do all these changes mean for employers and Department of Labor (DOL) priorities?

After much research and analysis, we recommend TimeClock Plus as our 2019 pick for the "best time and attendance system for larger employers".

Larger employers have varying needs when it comes to time and attendance systems. One area this is particularly true in is how it is hosted. Since many larger companies have their own IT staff, having an on-premises system might be an option they might want to take advantage of. On the other hand, depending on the number of locations the enterprise has, a cloud-hosted time and attendance software might be a better fit.

Canada: Changes Begin to Alberta's Labor Laws

Posted by TimeClock Plus on Jun 19, 2019 3:00:39 PM

On May 27th, 2019, the newly-elected United Conservative Party (UCP) Government, introduced Bill 2 to the Provincial Legislature which proposed amendments to the labor and employment laws in Alberta.

If Bill 2 passes in it's current form, employers can expect the following changes to be made to the Employment Standards and Labor Relations Codes for Alberta.

Employment Standards Code changes, which will take effect on September 1st, 2019, include:

1. Provide employees and employers with the option to structure straight-time banked hours instead of mandating that each hour of overtime worked require 1.5 hours off with pay.
2. Repeal provisions regarding Flexible Averaging Agreements because the proposed alterations to overtime banking will negate these agreements.
3. Include qualifying periods for holiday pay mandating that the employee is eligible for holiday pay if the employee has worked for the same employer for 30 work days in the last 12 months before the general holiday.
4. Return the distinctions between regular and irregular workdays when determining entitlement to general holiday pay.

Labor Relations Code changes include:

1. Return to mandatory secret ballot processes for all union certification votes through the removal of the provisions regarding certification without a representation vote.
2. Reduce the timeline for unions to provide evidence of employee support for union certification.
3. Establish programs to support and assist employees in understanding and exercising their rights under various labor-related acts in relations to unions and employers.
4. Bolster the marshaling provisions to coordinate employment-related complaints when the complaints involve multiple forums.

Employment Standards Regulations amendment, which will take effect on June 26th, 2019, includes:

1. Reduced youth minimum wage rate from $15 an hour to $13 an hour.
2. The youth minimum wage applies to students under the age of 18 who attended school up to Grade 12, post-secondary, or vocational school. It will also apply to those who work less than 28 hours per week when school is in session. When school is not in session, the minimum wage for students will be $13 an hour, regardless of hours worked.

Automated Solutions Lower Risks of Improper Leave

Posted by TimeClock Plus on Jun 6, 2019 1:19:49 PM
 

*Administering different types of paid and unpaid leave can be tricky, especially because so many of them overlap. There are legal ramifications to getting it right in many cases, but there are also risks to employee morale and turnover if you get it wrong. This goes for paid time off (PTO), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and all other forms of leave an organization may offer. Many of the items discussed in this article focus on the FMLA as this type of leave is quite easy to administer improperly.
