The Five Biggest HR/Payroll Issues Facing the Construction Industry

April 29, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

If your construction company has been managing its human capital the same way for years, you may be falling behind. Human resources and payroll matters change regularly, especially for a labor-intensive industry like construction.
We will review these five categories, the regulatory concerns and best practices.
Employee Handbook:
  • Is your handbook updated for new sick and family leave requirements?
  • Have you updated the new provisions outlined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)?
  • Are your workplace attire policies gender neutral?
  • Do you have a vaccine policy and is it compliant with the EEOC and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
Recruitment, Applicant Tracking and New Hires:
  •  Do you review job descriptions annually to ensure they match the role and work performed?
  •  Are the interviewers trained on proper and compliant interview techniques?
  •  Are new hires engaged and provided with the tools they need to be successful on their first day?
  •  Are you using the most recent Form W-4, I-9 and state and Local required documents? Are you ensuring accurate and timely completion by new hires?
Workforce Management:
  •  Are you confident you would pass an I-9 audit and e-Verify procedure review?
  •  How seamless and transparent is your harassment complaint and investigation process?
  •  Is your disciplinary process effective, clear, documented, transparent and administered consistently?
  •  Are you protecting employee information?
Workplace Safety:
  •  In the last year, have you reviewed and tested your disaster recovery and business continuity plan to ensure its effectiveness? Is it compliant with your insurance company requirements?
  •  Does your Safety Committee meet regularly and actively engage in injury prevention and investigation? Are you taking advantage of the workers compensation discounts available? Is your drug testing policy and response consistent, holistic and transparent?
  •  Do you have a training program that outlines emergency response (active shooters, shelter in place, response to medical emergencies such as injuries, heart attacks and overdoses, etc.)?
Wage and Hour:
  •  Are employees and managers signing off on timesheets?
  •  Are you compliant with the calculation of bonuses (on-call, attendance, etc.) in the overtime pay calculation?
  •  Are you including all payments to employees in their wage history?
  •  Are the deductions from employee pay compliant with federal, state and local limitations and requirements?
