It is not to be used for legal advice or counsel. You developed a sexual harassment training program. You put your executive team through it. Now, the state passes new legislation saying you have to do it all over again. Who needs the training — managers only or all employees? What about the frequency? Didn’t we just do this? The requirements of both the law and senior leadership may put you through a spin cycle of training seminars. Plus, the repeated preparation and execution of sessions may have you feeling like it’s your own personal Groundhog Day.

It is not to be used for legal advice or counsel. Didn’t I just ask my location manager to display the new pregnancy posting for California? Oh, the state made a typo on it. Guess we need a new one. Labor law postings change frequently, which can leave you feeling like it’s the most repetitive of tasks, especially if you’re in charge of hundreds of locations across the country. These postings are often your first line of defense in case of an employee complaint. Though it may seem monotonous, it’s something you must keep an eye on as an HR pro. GovDocs Update Program, anyone?
  7. 7. No. 3 Recruitment Groundhog Day

It is not to be used for legal advice or counsel. An opening comes up in your company. You update the job description, post it to the appropriate websites and fend off recruiters banging down your door. But once you find the perfect candidate, they back out at the last moment. The process starts again. With low unemployment rates nationwide, and the rise of “ghosting” among job prospects, recruitment is another one of the HR pro’s responsibilities that seemingly never comes to an end.
  9. 9. No. 4 Updating Employee Paid Leave Status Groundhog Day

What is the waiting period before employees can start using paid leave? Plenty of jurisdictions now have their own paid leave requirements. Tracking accrual rates, recordkeeping, seasonal vs. full-time … It’s the kind of thing you feel you’re doing over and over again. Plus, there are currently dozens of paid leave bills under consideration across the country. Keeping up with paid leave might make you want to crawl back into your burrow for six weeks. Check out GovDocs Paid Leave instead.
  11. 11. No. 5 Compensation Research Groundhog Day

It is not to be used for legal advice or counsel. In a tight job market, getting your hands on competitive compensation data for specific markets can be pivotal when it comes to hiring the right candidate. But many young professionals are also job-hopping more than their predecessors, which can lead to more research for HR teams. If you have employees in cities across the country, compensation research can become tiresome ... And repetitive.
  13. 13. No. 6 Minimum Wage Tracking Groundhog Day
  14. 14. Groundhog Day Copyright © 2020 GovDocs, Inc. GovDocs is a registered trademark of GovDocs, Inc. This content is intended for market awareness only. It is not to be used for legal advice or counsel. Will the minimum wage in Los Angeles County update this summer? Or was it Jan. 1? With the federal minimum wage unchanged since 2009, states, counties and cities are setting their own rates. Dozens of rate increases take place at the start and middle of each year, and there are a few that update during odd months like October. Managing rates can be a constant challenge, especially if your locations have industry-specific requirements. Yet another job responsibility that seems to come up frequently. Give GovDocs Minimum Wage a try.
