“Our HR Department has been very impressed with your webinars. They are very informative of the latest changes taking place in Illinois; with that, many of the changes in our HR management operating system have been a result of the education you’re providing. It also helps that your presenters are energetic and knowledgeable. Today’s post-exam webinar (8/21/13 – Post-Employment Offer Exams – Reduce Workers’ Comp Risks) was very informative and Eugene (Keefe, Campbell, Biery & Associates) was an awesome presenter.” Joe Wickenhauser, Olin Brass Mill Products Safety Coordinator
“Congratulations on the best webinar (5/30/12 – General Healthcare Do’s That Won’t Change Regardless of the Supreme Court) I have participated in. The presenters (Rebecca Dobbs, SmithAmundsen, and Noreen Blair, Wine Sergi) were excellent and engaging.” Tom Atkins, Illinois Road Contractors, Inc.
“Thank you for giving your time in service and support of our Chamber! You bring a lot of value to the Chamber and our membership. I appreciate your advice and as always, your webinar yesterday (8/2/12 – Top 10 Employee Handbook Mistakes) was very informative! I have attended several Illinois Chamber seminars and webinars and I must say, your presentations and content are always the best and you have the unique ability to keep it interesting.” Tanett Thomason, Brennan Equipment & Mfg., Inc.
“Thank you! The webinar (8/7/12 – HSAs, HRAs, FSAs: What Employers Need to Know) was extremely informative (I wish I could listen to it again, there was that much information provided!)” Wendy Tarmon, Midwest Technical Inspections, Inc.
Consider the following:
• Do your employees understand the law and your company policies? Communicate “what not to do” before there is a problem.
• Do you have Illinois-compliant HR policies? Don’t wait for the boss to ask – get your answers now.
• Want to stay in compliance, reduce risk, and save money? Educate yourself and your managers.
• Are you doing everything you can to protect your company from an employment claim? Get the information you need now to make legally sound decisions.
It may not be easy to promote a safe work environment, comply with laws governing paid and unpaid leaves of absence, identify, investigate, and resolve harassment behavior and complaints, but IT IS THE LAW! We can help you stay in compliance and hopefully avoid lawsuits, fines and much more.
