Highlights from our blog:

Time to update your sexual harassment policy. Harassment is a delicate, but necessary issue that should be addressed in every work environment. With proper training, managers and employees can detect when sexual harassment is taking place in the work environment and have the proper knowledge as to how to address or report such behavior. Update your policy.

How to manage conflict resolution. It is important to train your managers on how to manage conflict! By providing professional coaching in conflict management, managers can better understand how to handle and deal with conflict in a way that is both productive and helpful to resolving the underlying issues. Learn more about conflict resolution.

Updated DLSE forms for hourly hires. All "hourly" new hires must be provided with a signed copy of their DLSE form upon hire. This form is required by the state of California as of January 2012 and is an essential part of the hiring process. Additionally, this form has now been revised to indicate the required “sick time” benefit, which will be effective July 2015. Read more.

Return to work: Doctor's release. The number of employees who take sick leaves increases steadily time of year. Missing employees can affect your business operations, it’s important to ensure your employees are staying home and recovering rather than coming to work and getting the rest of your staff sick. Have them provide you with a doctor’s note for reassurance. Learn more.
