This time of year, there’s an extremely contagious little bug that gets around in crowded places, but it’s especially common in offices. It’s not the cold or flu, but something a little more insidious: employee burnout.
Burnout happens when employees have completely spent their physical, intellectual, and emotional stores, and are still pushed (by themselves, their families, their managers, or any combination of parties) to give more. It’s both easy to catch and really tough to cure.
While the future of healthcare in America has been uncertain for most of this year, the ACA 2017 reporting deadline is right around the corner. After a year of back and forth, we’ve reached a point where we know not much can change on Capitol Hill between now and the looming 2018 deadline. To best manage and report on ACA compliance, there's a lot you need to know about the employer provisions that affect many U.S. employers.
As an HR manager, you need to know the ins and outs of these provisions so you can proactively manage ACA compliance in your organization. That starts with knowing your ACA vocabulary—what do all those acronyms mean anyway?
Since 1919, several allied countries who participated in World War I have observed November 11—the day the armistice that ended the war was signed—as a day to honor the contribution of military veterans. This day was initially called Armistice Day, but within several years, it was renamed Veterans Day in the United States and Remembrance Day (or informally, Poppy Day) in the Commonwealth.
In the U.S., Veterans Day is a federal holiday, meaning all non-essential government offices are closed. Employees who are required to work are generally given another day off, or receive additional compensation for working on a federal holiday. Private employers, however, are not required to provide the day off for their employees; according to a SHRM survey in 2010, only about 21% of private employers planned to give their employees the day off to observe.
