The threat of employee-related litigation | PEO Blog

Wednesday October 19, 2011

by Matt Thomas

Employee-related litigation is a constant worry for any employer.

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charges reached an all-time high in 2010; wage and hour complaints constantly threaten a company’s bottom line.

Responding to an EEOC charge – many of which are frivolous – can cost a small company thousands of dollars – and that’s before it even reaches the formal stage. Legal fees can skyrocket when defending against a wage and hour complaint in court.

Staying up to date on labor laws is critical to the success of small- and medium-sized businesses, many of which lack the resources to do so on their own. That’s where a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) comes in: Part of a PEO’s responsibility is to stay educated on workplace laws and regulations and develop and maintain legally-approved workplace policies, both of which provide an employer peace of mind when it comes to employee-related litigation.

A PEO as a partner - and not the enemy | PEO Blog

Wednesday June 08, 2011

Outsourcing Human Resources can cause alarm in any workplace.

Will jobs be lost? Will the cost of healthcare increase? Will benefits decrease?

All are understandable reactions as the economy continues to tread water and the prospect of becoming unemployed remains an ever-present reality.

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) – an outside company that handles human resource services – often is seen as an interloper or labeled the enemy because of misconceptions that it will lead to firings of in-house staff or increased costs.

How to manage election year conversations in the workplace
October 2008 by Jennifer Stone

With the Republican and Democratic nominating conventions over and the race for president hitting the home stretch, political chatter is bound to heat up.

And that’s especially true in the workplace, which was once considered off limits for such discussions.

A recent survey by the American Management Association shows that 39 percent of employees are quite comfortable about sharing their political views with their co-workers. But not all appreciate their candor. The same survey also found that 35 percent of workers are less than thrilled with political talk at the office.
