HIPAA, HITEC, and release of records

I heard it in the teacher’s lounge.

Businesses must either comply with governmental requirements for retention and disclosure of records or pay a hefty price. The government’s crackdown on the release of protected information is at an all-time high and knowing the latest regulations on HIPAA, HiTech, and the release of information is more important than ever. Learn developing rules and trends that proactive employers must know.

Creating and updating a clear and effective employee handbook

Pep rallies, school pride, and a happy student body.

Employee handbooks set the culture and rules of an organization, so few documents are as important to the workplace. Effective handbooks must be reviewed regularly to incorporate current law. Learn the latest legal developments with handbooks, including rapid changes with respect to EEO, reasonable accommodations, breastfeeding, leaves of absence, workplace communications, pay, and quickly emerging legal issues.

Be equipped to handle the latest challenges, including pay equity requirements, salary history bans, connectivity and overtime, training and travel pay, misclassification of workers, new joint employer rule making, and the department of labor’s recent re-visit of an increase in salary for exempt employees.
