Human Resources for small groups:
As an added benefit of working with us, Benefits by Design pairs with several HR Consultants and can help analyze the Benefit Administration module of your Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) or Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS).
In addition, we can link our clients without charge to an online Employee Benefit HR system, HR Wow. This system not only tracks your employee’s benefit enrollment, but also allows you to reach out for HR Compliance Auditing, Handbook updates, and Employment Law questions.
California’s employment law and regulations differ from other States so much that keeping up with the specifics of the HR world requires the type of support you can get from Benefits by Design. For example, here are a few current, relatively unique California laws not found in most other States:
Leave Laws: CFRA vs. FMLA, “ADA” Leave, Pregnancy Disability Leave.
Terminations: Separation agreements, payments due upon termination.
Non-Exempt Rights: Differences in overtime, minimum wage, meal/rest break, wage notice requirements, and other rights between Exempt and Non-Exempt employees.
Hiring: Limitations on background checks, non-competition agreements.
“Exempt” Status: Differences in exempt duties and compensation requirements.
Vacation, PTO, & Sick Time: Ban on “use it or lose it” vacation/PTO/floating holidays, accrual caps, family care.
Sexual Harassment: Expanded training requirements.
