When confronted with a
particularly tough human resource problem, Compliance ProTM turns the
computer into a personal research assistant. Compliance ProTM assists
an employer with employment-related issues from A to Z in the shortest
amount of time and provides a valuable tool for HR in the Total Quality
Management (TQM) process by enforcing the importance of a quality mentality
throughout the organization and its ultimate effect on the bottom line.
The Program references and aids employer compliance with Federal Employment
laws, OSHA, The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and other social-legal
obligations (Civil Rights Act of 1991, Age Discrimination in Employment
Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, etc.) and includes a Manager's Employment
Law Self-Training course for TQM purposes. Potential lawsuits involving
discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation and detrimental
reliance present the employer with major loss exposures. These obligations
are compounded by the statutory causes of action provided under workers'
compensation laws, e.g. retaliatory discharge and discrimination.
Available at your fingertips
are the Federal Employment, Labor Laws and Regulations interpreted in
a very comprehensive and easily understood manner to assist owners, executive
management, human resource managers, and first line managers in making
difficult employment decisions. It is the only employment management software
program available that is user friendly, comprehensively written, and
links together all the Federal Employment, Labor Laws and Regulations
including explanations, practical tips. Compliance ProTM provides all
the necessary forms, (automatically tailored with the company name), as
well as an Employee Policy Manual with policies which assist in documenting
and providing a basis for disciplinary actions and defending the company's
position. This edition of Compliance ProTM is specifically written to
address policies and procedures appropriate for financial institutions
and includes approved security programs, and Affirmative Action programs.
The Program is based on
the minimum standards an employer needs to pro-actively posture the business
should employment-related claims or litigation arise. The Program begins
with the hiring process, including how to write a want ad, employment
applications, interviewing and hiring, to resignation or termination.
Safety Policies current under OSHA mandates and Policies, which meet the
most recent ADA regulations, are also included. Additionally, the Program
contains graphic illustrations on proper body mechanics, lifting techniques,
ergonomics, health and wellness.
The authors include a highly
skilled (Board Certified) Employment And Labor Law Trial Attorney, an
Arbitrator on the American Arbitration Associations Employment Panel,
(with a major Law Firm in Dallas); a very knowledgeable, seasoned Employment
and Occupation Injury Risk Manager, (Who's Who In Executives and Professionals),
ARM, CPCU, (National Certification in Risk Management), who has consulted
to very large companies over the past 20 years; and a specialist in Bank
Security and Investigation. The Program is based upon a belief that an
ounce of prevention is worth pounds of cure and respectively in employment
a prophylactic (preventive), pro-active management style can reduce an
employer's liability exposures as well as potential legal costs arising
There is never
going to be a Program out there that will prevent employment law suits
from occurring, but this Program arms employers with an education and
appreciation of the potential exposures, and the Program's tools aid in
the protection of the business.
