  • I did an employee survey in 2001 and boy did the s*** hit the fan! Talk about airing problems and personality issues and down right dislike of managers - I had it. Of course, the ED downplayed the problems and would not address the issues - she te…
  • What an excellent idea. Thank you so much. I'll make the call on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend.
  • I only wish we did have an EAP. We are so small and located in a very rural community in the western mountains of NC. I have asked our Risk Management agent to also look into this. If you have any other suggestions, I would greatly appreciate any…
  • Our agency is observing December 24, 25, and 27 as our Christmas Holidays. Since Christmas falls on Saturday and we receive Christmas Eve anyway, it is only logical that the following Monday would be observed as the Christmas Day holiday.
  • I agree with Don. Our Controller just realized that fact AFTER she paid the first payroll. Since we only have 5 exempt employees, our salary was recalculated and adjusted accordingly to work out to our annual salary agreement. The hourly ee's not…
  • [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 02-27-04 AT 01:48PM (CST)[/font][br][br]I think if it were me, I would still issue a letter to the former EE and explain in the letter that per verbal agreement with whomever, that he/she would be covere…
  • Our agency is a small home health agency, approximately 31 full-time EE's. Presently, the agency pays 100% for EE's and the EE pays for family and/or spousal coverage. We provide updates yearly as to the status and coverage elements the plan provi…
  • T, in NC any incident that an employee has is reported to W/C. Those that do not require medical attention still get reported "for information only" to our W/C carrier. Depending on the type of incident/injury determines if I log it on the OSHA lo…
  • I agree with neveradull's statement. I can provide regs if you need. Please email me at [email]cwinebarger@charter.net[/email]

  • Exactly. Our new EE's are on probation for 90 days anyway. We have had some doozies as my inactive files will substantiate. Considering. I have one developed, but wanted to compare to what others might have.
  • Well, maybe I'm mean...they just don't have a choice. Actually, it is only for those EE's who are having problems in certain areas. The appraisal is not as in-depth as the annual eval. Just certain areas are reviewed and basically is similar to a…
  • Bless your heart. Thank you so much.
  • I used to do as you are doing in the middle of December for Federal and State, but Personnel Records were getting to cumbersome, so I now just let EE's know that forms are available if they desire to make any changes.

  • I just had to rag you a little. I read the thread on what is appropriate for the forum and got quite a chuckle from some of the responses. By the way, Happy New Year to you and all the Forumites.

  • Don, you ate too much turkey over the holidays. x:D I think what the poster was asking was if it mattered if an old W-4 was used. It doesn't matter, but I like to use the most current version for new enrollees or for older employees who want to …

  • Yes, we do. If you check with your local Red Cross Chapter, they will provide training at a cheaper rate. Their certification is only good for one year though. I would invest in the American Heart Association training as it is good for 2 years an…
  • Some of you "seasoned" HR people are a hoot. Thank you for the uplifting answers. Thank you to those who answered the question with "core" answers. Ya'll just make my day. xclap
  • [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 11-10-03 AT 09:02AM (CST)[/font][p]We have ee's who change their name for whatever reason complete a new I-9 with supporting documentation. Usually, they have benefits, so those documents have to be cha…
  • We will give staff off July 5th for July 4th and Christmas will be the 24th and the 27th. Our company is very generous.
