Speaker: Ms. Lorie Floyd PHR, Human Resources Consultant, TAC
Understanding all facets of the Family Medical Leave Act and learning how to comply with this complex federal law is crucial.

10:30-11:30 a.m.        Documentation: Reduce your County's Risk
Speaker: Ms. Cheraun Blankenship, Human Resources Consultant, TAC
As supervisors, we have been taught that documentation is a critical component within any county.  Documentation is a recording of evidence or information about employment events that can be formal or informal.  Although it is most often thought about when terminating an employee, documentation is also a crucial part of hiring and job preservation, in the form of job descriptions and performance reviews. In this session, attendees will learn why documentation is important, how it relates to job descriptions and when it needs to be a priority!

Speaker: Ms. Michele Arseneau, PHR, SHRM-CP, Senior Human Resource Consultant, TAC
During this session, we will revisit the Fair Labor Standards Act. Attendees will learn the partial overtime exemption we call the 207(k) provisions for law enforcement. They will learn about the nuances, policies and some of the most common variations of this exemption. We will discuss the proposed increases to minimum wage and how counties should prepare for possible increases.
