Whether you’re employed in accounting, human resources or law, it’s likely you’ll face some compensation issue in the workplace. This 3-course bundle covers the topic from many angles so you’ll be more informed.
Webinar 1: Compensation Systems Explained: Creating Pay Structures
Credits: 1.5 HRCI; 1.5 SHRM; CLE; CPE
Less than half the companies with under 100 employees have formal salary structures and only 70% of all U.S. companies have such structures. Yet almost all companies report that they have hard-to-recruit positions and are vulnerable to losing top talent. Having a competitive well-designed compensation system has long been a cornerstone of employee recruitment and retention. Regardless of the economy, it is critical to have a competitive compensation structure that fulfills your company’s goals.
In this practical webinar, you will explore the fundamental concepts of creating a compensation system.
Webinar 2: Calculating the Regular Rate of Pay Under the FLSA
Credits: 1.5 HRCI; 1.5 SHRM; CLE
Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around a long time, it is one of the most frequently violated employment laws – particularly in how to calculate overtime correctly. Employers fail to recognize what hours must be compensated and how the working hours should be compensated. Improper calculations can lead to employees being underpaid or even being paid too much, which can lead to legal liability exposure.
Under both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the California Labor Code, the regular rate of pay is the rate an employer must use to pay overtime premiums to employees who work overtime hours. The regular rate of pay can change from workweek to workweek because it must reflect the per-hour value of all compensation the employee has earned.
In this practical webinar, you will learn how to tackle the latest compliance challenges stemming from miscalculations of pay, compensation planning practices, salary communication missteps, and more. You will also explore the DOL’s final rule providing clarification on how to determine employees’ regular rate of pay and what forms of payment employers can include and exclude in the overtime pay calculation.
Webinar 3: Money Talk: Crucial Compensation Conversations with Employees
Credits: 1.5 HRCI; 1.5 SHRM
Talking about compensation is a sensitive topic for most people in the workplace. Pay conversations almost always involve emotions because many employees equate self-worth with compensation. Only a few are able to completely separate their value as a person from the dollar value the company places on them.
Unfortunately, the best employees in the company are the ones that tend to become the most disillusioned and disengaged if pay expectations and pay reality are not aligned. Conversations related to compensation have the highest risk of destroying morale, sapping productivity and eroding retention rates. Despite this risk, more than 53% of managers admit that their company has never offered training to teach them how to talk about compensation. Similarly, on the employee side, only about half of employees feel that their company does a good job of explaining pay programs.
The solution lies in a dramatic change in the way companies, and especially individual managers, talk to employees about compensation. In this practical webinar, you will explore powerful techniques for conducting even the most emotional pay discussions with employees in order to eliminate the risks associated with compensation conversations.
