Installment 4 - Protecting Your Business through Compliance with Employment Laws
Thank you for your continued readership throughout this series! We sincerely hope that you have learned about protecting your business when it comes to employment law. For this final installment, we will discuss laws that affect business with 100 or more employees.
Don't be fooled, even though this installment is a short read, all of the laws we have discussed in our previous installments still apply. If you are new to the blog, we suggest reading the last three posts in the series. Check it out here.
Workers Adjustment Retraining Notification Act (WARN) – Governed by the U.S. Department of Labor
WARN provides that, with certain exceptions, employers of 100 or more workers must give at least 60 days' advance notice of a plant closing or mass layoff to affected workers or their representatives, to the State dislocated worker unit, and to the appropriate local government.
Private employers with 100 or more employees must file an annual EEO-1 report, which includes the number of employees by gender and race, according to EEO job categories. Federal Contractors with more than 50 employees must submit an EEO report. The preferred method for completing the reports is through a web based filing system.
It is worth mentioning that these last few posts have focused almost entirely on federal employment law. There are additional Colorado-specific employment laws that we would love to discuss with you personally! We understand how overwhelming it may seem to comply with all these laws.
We would love the opportunity to consult with you one-on-one. Protecting your business is as easy as scheduling a discovery meeting with us today!
