Live Webinar: The Complexity and Interplay Among ADAAA, FMLA, and Worker's Comp (WC) - How Do They Work Together, or Not ? When: Wednesday August 25, 2021 - 01:00 PM Duration: 90 Minutes. Register Now Ensuring compliance with FMLA can be frustrating for many HR professionals who are uncomfortable with the Act. This leads to litigation. Then, to add the ADAAA legal requirements adds to the confusion which can also lead to discrimination under civil rights law. Sometimes sprinkled in with FMLA and the ADAAA is WC – the nexus among the three legal requirements, especially as it relates to leave, medical certification, and getting the employee back to work as quickly as possible, can be daunting. This webinar will separate the three laws and examine how each law applies to work situations. Why one should attend the training: To review the intricacies of how WC, ADAAA, and WC intersect to provide employees’ coverage under these acts To discuss the challenges in terminating an employee after they have expended their FMLA benefits without ignoring their rights through the ADAAA or state laws To identify steps to follow when an employee fails to provide the requested and required medical certification To explain the process in responding to an intermittent leave request that may include a potential ADAAA accommodat To clarify a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities based on the ADAAA

Live Webinar: HR Compliance 101 - For New HR/Non - HR Managers, Including COVID-19 When: Tuesday August 31, 2021 - 01:00 PM Duration: 90 Minutes. Click here to Register Webinar In an increasingly complicated world of employee compliance in which HR struggles just to keep abreast of new developments, not teaching managers the basics can be costly. After all, it's the managers who interact with employees on a day-to-day basis and every day is an opportunity for problems to arise that a manager was never trained in how to address. Why should you attend? By the time an employee problem reaches HR, a level of liability has often been created. How an employer handles such problems, can either limit or increase liability. Further exacerbating the problem is that managers often inherit a dysfunctional department and/or are promoted to supervise those with whom they once were co-workers. Areas Covered in the Session: Basics of the Big Four of employment compliance- Title VII, FLSA, FMLA, ADA Employee Relations Safety Management Register soon because space is limited. We hope you’re able to join us!

The Susceptible, Infected, and Recovered (SIR) Model for Covid-19 When: Tuesday Jul 27, 2021 - 01:00 PM EST Duration: 60 Minutes. Click here to Register Webinar While the NPIs have obviously failed to contain Covid-19 due primarily to noncompliance among the general public (which is linked in turn to general lack of understanding of the underlying science), they did end the 2019-2020 flu season about a month early and will probably result in no substantial 2020-2021 flu season whatsoever. This is because there is a vaccine for seasonal flu, many if not most people avail themselves of its protection every year, and the 2019-2020 seasonal flu could not survive the combined effects of the NPIs and the vaccine. The NPIs were however unable to end Covid-19, for which there is no vaccine, by themselves. Areas Covered in the Session: The physical and economic dangers associated with Covid-19 are obvious. The disease has a relatively high (on the order of 2%, lower for younger people and higher for older ones) lethality, is extremely contagious, and is often asymptomatic. People who have it might not know they can give it to others, and even survivors can suffer lifelong damage. The good news is however that non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) can reduce the disease's menace to allow businesses to reopen safely. They also work against seasonal flu and have already, in combination with the annual vaccine for that disease, ended the 2019-2020 flu season about a month early. We can predict reasonably that there will be no 2020-2021 flu season for the same reason, and the takeaway is that the NPIs are effective. NPIs impede both Covid-19 and seasonal flu by suppressing their basic reproduction numbers (NPIs) Vaccination (like herd immunity) puts a substantial fraction of the population into the Recovered (and immune) category, but without the risks associated with getting the disease itself. If a portion of the population is vaccinated against seasonal flu, R0 does not need to be reduced to less than 1 to have the same effect. There is not yet a vaccine against Covid-19 so NPIs are currently our only way to suppress it. These include, in descending order of preference,

Seminar:2-Day Virtual Seminar Quality and GMP Compliance for Virtual Companies(Pharmaceutical and Biologics Industries) When:Thursday & Friday July 15-July 16,2021 DAY 01 & 02 (11:00 AM - 3:00 PM EST). Click here to Register Seminar Today, many companies operate on an outsourcing model. This is very common for companies who are evolving from being mainly development-focused to a point where they are entering later stages of Phase 2 or Phase 3 clinical trials and plan to have a product ready for market approval in the coming months. Most such companies are small, and may not have deep expertise in QA and GMP compliance, relying on their partners to cover those areas. Companies that outsource the majority of operations through the use of Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOS), Contract Research Organizations (CROs), and Contract Laboratories, however, remain responsible for the quality and compliance status of the products they send to the clinic or to the marketplace. Learning Objectives: Participants in this seminar will: Understand the GMP and GCP requirements all virtual companies must meet regardless of the extent of their outsourcing operations Understand how to select, qualify and monitor CMOs, CROs, and Contract Laboratories Learn the elements to include in a quality agreement (also known as a technical agreement) Learn how to determine which GMP or GCP requirements apply to you, depending on the things you do internally and those you outsource Understand your obligations under the law for products you release to the clinic or the marketplace Appreciate the importance of maintaining data integrity Learn how to effectively manage a health regulatory inspection: Inspection logistics Responding effectively to document requests and questions from inspectors Managing the inspection exit discussion How to write an effective response to inspection observations

Live Webinar: Don't Let Finance Run the Factory When: Tuesday Jun 22, 2021 - 01:00 PM Duration: 60 Minutes. Click here to Register Webinar While generally accepted accounting procedures must be used to prepare financial statements and tax returns, traditional cost accounting is indeed totally unsuited to managerial decision making and can drive dysfunctional behavior such as generation of unsaleable inventory to "absorb overhead." Cost accounting treats inventory as an asset, which it might indeed be on paper, but it ties up money, increases cycle times, and gives quality problems a place to hide. This presentation will show how to use relevant metrics for effective decision processes. Areas Covered in the Session: Traditional cost accounting methods are mandatory for tax and financial reporting, but their application to managerial decision processes can make them more destructive to organizational performance than many forms of poor quality. When Cheap is Costly Inventory is Not an Asset (even if must be treated by one by the accounting system). It ties up capital, increases cycle time, and gives defects a place to hide. Variable costs often aren't. Labor is, unless overtime is being paid, a fixed cost regardless of what the cost accounting system calls it. Treatment of labor (and, even worse, overhead costs) as variable costs could easily result in the decision to turn down marginally profitable work—that is, the revenue from each item sold exceeds the cost of making it—because it would generate a loss on paper.
