UPCOMING MVHRA MEETINGS AND EVENTS

 

 

September 10, 2019

 

Luncheon: Clearing out Ambiguity in our Company Culture

Speaker: Steve Browne

Location: Sinclair Community College

Time: 11:15 AM - 11:30 AM: Registration & Networking

11:30 AM - 12:00 PM: Announcements & Lunch

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM: Speaker

  • Owning HR - HR is at a crossroads where we need to own who we are and what we bring to organizations. We are not a support function. We are a leadership/development arm of the company.
  • The Human Factor - HR has the ability to personalize and practice HR at the individual level. Done well this leads to building the whole into an organization filled with people who truly perform in their roles. This is much more than putting the "H" in HR. It's allowing people to bring their best to their role every day.
  • The Power of Context - Giving employees context around why we have parameters and processes is a shift from the traditional organization. HR can affect the company from a behavioral perspective which is sustainable on a long-term basis.
  • Development not Measurement - HR must develop employees from the C-Suite to Management to Front-line Supervision. This takes a complete break from how companies currently approach employees. There is an intentional method that breaks through and leverages the strengths of our people.
  • Approach is Key - HR has the responsibility to model the behavior it wants to see in others. It's not good enough to design programs, performance must be visible and consistent. HR sets the standard and direction of culture strategically across the organization.

Workshop: The Latest Updates in Labor & Employment Law / Litigating an Employment Claim from Start to Finish

Speaker: Matthew Bakota, Auman Mahan + Furry

Location: Sinclair Community College

Time: 7:45 AM - 8:00 AM: Registration & Continental Breakfast

8:00 AM - 11:15 AM: Professional Development Workshop

 

In this two-part workshop, Matthew Bakota of Auman Mahan + Furry will cover (1) some of the most recent updates in labor & employment law and (2) litigating from start to finish an employment claim that has made its way to court.

 In part 1, Matthew will cover some of the latest updates in the following areas: workplace safety; overtime rules / wage-hour; discrimination; employee handbooks; political speech in the workplace; Ohio supervisor liability; and others.

 In part 2, Matthew will present a new topic for MVHRA. Matthew will take attendees through the phases of litigating an employment claim in court, to help HR professionals better understand the pros, cons, potential time commitment, cost, and distraction that a lawsuit can become. Goals include equipping HR professionals with knowledge (a) that they can use to help their organizations decide how to handle employment claims before they get to litigation, (b) that they can use to help their organizations through the phases of litigation when it is unavoidable, and (c) that they can use to help improve their organizations’ approach to personnel files, record-keeping, electronic devices, and other common evidence in employment litigation. This should allow HR professionals and other attendees to become even more valued partners in the organization when it comes to mitigating risks associated with employment claims and developing solid processes and strategies prior to and during court litigation.

Doug Jenks and Abbie White of Auman Mahan + Furry will present an informative and very interactive program that will let attendees determine which path to choose in a variety of hypothetical situations involving workers’ compensation claims.  Once a path is chosen, Doug and Abbie will discuss the pros and cons and perils and pitfalls that likely would be encountered along the way.  A main goal is to put HR professionals and other attendees in the best position to anticipate potential wrong turns and successfully navigate through real world workers’ comp claims facing their organizations.  Topics will include the workers’ comp claims process in Ohio; analyzing and evaluating the merits of workers’ comp claims; best practice defense strategies and tactics; and many others.
