The US legislative landscape continues to evolve at the wonderment of employers and employees alike. This year’s election has all but stalled any advances on determining what is going to happen or how to react. Yes, react, because that is the position we find ourselves in, awaiting each day for updates on ACA, FLSA, NLRA and several laws either currently in effect or pending approval. But, we still need to be on guard, just in case.
Employers will need to continue to monitor these changes to strategically plan for the impacts to how they recruit, retain and release talent and manage their business operations, strategically and financially. Question – are you utilizing your software and software provider partners to help you with your planning? If not, you should consider them as vital resources to managing compliance concerns and planning for the future.
