Juneteenth in Florida

Be the first person to recommend this.
Good morning everyone.  I am looking for help from our Florida groups.  Since the State has yet to officially recognize Juneteenth as a paid holiday, I am trying to ascertain the rulings or directions the various Counties/Cities/Towns in Florida are taking.  Thanks for your assistance!!

Cloud-Paperless Systems

Be the first person to recommend this.
Our Accounting Department is looking for an electronic system to replace paper employee files. The system would need to allow us to upload, organize (by category and subcategory), store, update, export, and retrieve documents quickly and safely.  It would have to have access/permission setting to categories and subcategories that are controlled by individual or group permissions. Does anyone have a similar product they are using to recommend?

Does anyone have a good (or any) policy regarding the use of personal portable electronic devices (cell phones, iPad's, handheld game units, etc.) in a secure facility? This would be such as a secure residential treatment facility or corrections facility. I'm pretty sure jails are very restrictive, I'm looking for something more in line with a residential treatment facility. Thanks in Advance!

There is little more daunting to an HR professional than navigating the world of state and federal compliance. It can be intimidating, to say the least, and the decisions your team/leadership makes affect not just you but the business as a whole. Employees are directly impacted by required training (their "favorite" work past-time). Your role is affected as you're likely in charge of rolling out reports, training courses, and more. Even finance and overall business ROI is affected as a result of required compliance initiatives. Companies that aren't compliant with required regulations run the risk of fines, court cases, and high employee turnover. It's ...

Hi, If you work for a local government employer, can you tell me if you use pre-employment cognitive aptitude testing?  If you do, what positions do you use it for, do you like it and what company do you use?  Thank you.  Melanie

In our public sector community, we provide offer letters or welcoming letters to potential employees cautiously so that do not appear as or are viewed as an employment contract.  Within my agency there are many discussions around: 1. the proper title for such letters; 2. whether to move away from snail mail letters to electronic mail only; and 3. content or required verbiage that should be included in the communication.  Currently, we use the term offer letter.  This letter goes to the candidate via mail and/or email only after they have verbally accepted the offer.  This letter acknowledges their acceptance and provides guidance and direction on when new employee ...
