  • How Tests and Other Employment Practices can be Illegal

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019

    Understanding the legal implications of tests and other employment practices is critical for HR professionals. An employer can’t intentionally discriminate, but, in the vast majority of claims brought under the 1991 Civil Rights Act’s Title VII or Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (41 CRF 60-3) – the only way to challenge a practice is to claim it’s discriminatory – intentional discrimination is not alleged. Most claims are triggered statistically by adverse impact – that it caused a protected group to be under-selected – despite employer commitment to EEO. This sessionwill demonstrate the two ways a practice can be discriminatory within how anti-discrimination law evolved into Title VII and the Uniform Guidelines, with many firsthand case examples; differences between the two legal standards; and basic exam legal defensibility, while humorously debunking legal defensibility myths. Learning Objectives: Understand basic legal defensibility at the lay level to be proactive to mitigate potential employment practice liability; Debunk EEO compliance myths through examination of case examples and learn what not to do to mitigate liability; Become aware that the federal government doesn't always know what they're supposed to be enforcing.

  • Reduce the Human and Financial Cost of Job-Related Injury

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/28/2019

    HR has a unique opportunity to reduce the human and financial cost of job injuries even without direct responsibility for workers’ compensation.

Understanding these cost drivers, what employers can and should be doing, and what to expect from their insurance carrier and doctors, the better the employer will be at controlling costs.. Private employers in Texas are not required to carry workers’ compensation insurance but employers who do not have workers’ compensation must still manage job-related injury issues.

We examine the impact company culture, supervisor/management skills and socio-economic situations have on costs. Participants will learn to avoid some of the pitfalls faced by employers in getting injured employees back to work after an injury occurs. Learning Objectives: Understand and address the factors driving high injury costs; Develop an improved understanding of workers' compensation; Learn what employers can and should be doing to manage costs.
