June: Managing People
Finding and keeping the right people is increasingly harder in today’s competitive environment. It is also hard to do all this within the rules and regulations faced by small businesses. This series includes presentations by human resource and legal experts, as well as, an ADOT expert. Whether you currently have employees or independent contractors or expect to in the future, this is a don’t miss series!
June 14: Recruiting and Hiring the Right Talent - Hiring and training a new employee involves a significant investment of time and money. A bad hire wastes these resources, sending you back to square one. Companies need solid strategies and tactics that can help them identify their needs and find the right person. Speaker - Tyler Kinnie, Tuft & Needle
June 21: Employee vs Independent Contractor - What difference does it make? When the IRS and/or the U.S. Department of Labor determine that workers have been treated (misclassified) as Independent Contractors and are instead Employees, the consequence(s) to the employer can include back wages, back taxes, fines/penalties, class-action lawsuits, and/or prison. Do you know the rules and guidelines? Speaker - John Perkins, HR-Help
June 28: Prevailing Wages – In government contracting, a prevailing wage is defined as the hourly wage, usual benefits and overtime, paid to the majority of workers, laborers, and mechanics within a particular area. There are also 32 states including Arizona that have state prevailing wage laws, also known as "little Davis-Bacon Acts". Learn more about how to stay in compliance with this critical requirement. Speaker - Estella Robinson, ADOT
