You first met Helga and her wild employee problems at the SHRM Annual Conference in 2013 and she returned in 2014 with more unique HR situations. Well, she's baaaaaaack and her issues just keep getting more complex and critical to her organization! While we don't yet know for certain what Helga will confront in 2015, she seems focused on new problems created by the FLSA and wage and hour laws, required policy updates due to changes in the legal landscape, dealing with a complicated EEO investigation, and more! This session will focus on uncommon HR issues and examine practical, business-focused solutions that you can use immediately to solve those problems.
