RALEIGH, N.C. – Smith Anderson Partner, Kim Korando, presented the “top workplace compliance issues for 2012 and beyond” to the Triangle Society of Human Resource Management (TSHRM). Among the issues she discussed were the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s continued efforts to use individual charges to challenge general employer policies and the implications of the recent criminal history guidance and Reasonable Factor Other than Age regulations; what human resource managers need to know about the Internal Revenue Service’s voluntary correction program for misclassified 1099 workers; things savvy employers consider before allowing employees to use personal devices for business communications; how and why non-union employees will bring actions and win for rights most non-union employers never thought they had; and whether arbitration agreements are a good risk management strategy. TSHRM members represent leading employers in Research Triangle Park.
