HR Training Series
Foulston offers webinars and in-person seminars for HR professionals, managers, and business owners in all industries across the region. Each session will address HR issues that are important and relevant to employers.
- OSHA Compliance (Webinar)
August 24, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Is your organization ready for an OSHA visit? Join us as we explore basic OSHA concepts and discuss how to respond to an OSHA inspection. We will also cover a variety of OSHA regulations and explore topics related to respiratory protection, COVID-19, and other recent changes at OSHA.
- Performance Management (Webinar)
September 1, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
In this session, we’ll discuss the different aspects of performance management, including evaluations, performance improvement plans, discipline, and the difficult discussions that often go into each one. We’ll provide guidance for how to (and not to) handle these issues and provide time for interactive discussions about what has worked (and what hasn’t).
- LOA Toolkit: Managing Complex Leave Scenarios (Webinar)
September 14, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
We’re bringing back this popular topic, where we dive into and dissect various leave of absence scenarios to learn how employers can avoid compliance headaches under the FMLA, ADA, and workers’ compensation. Our goal is to establish a set of tools that HR professionals can use to manage these complex situations, both with regard to helping management understand the legal requirements associated with leave issues, and to help determine when an employee’s LOA goes from reasonable to unreasonable.
- Benefits Roundup (Webinar)
October 5, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
It’s been a super busy year for employee benefits with all the COVID relief, stimulus legislation, and regulatory guidance to go along with it. Let’s take a moment to catch our breath, take stock of where everything stands, and get ready for the new year. In this session, we’ll review the latest legislative and regulatory developments for both health and retirement benefits and highlight what’s new and hot for 2022. As a bonus, we’ll reserve 10-15 minutes for an open Q&A. Bring your weirdest and most pressing benefits questions and see if you can stump the presenter – no extra charge!
- HR 101: Understanding the Basics (*In-person workshop)
October 27, 2021 | 1:00 - 4:30 PM
Are you a newcomer to the HR world? Have you spent a significant amount of time in a narrow HR niche area? If so, this session is for you. This entry-level, comprehensive review of employment law is designed to help you recognize potential legal issues in your workplace. We will touch on a wide variety of employment law topics to help you spot issues or concerns before they become larger problems.
*This session is available to attend in-person at our office in Wichita and in-person via videoconference at our offices in Kansas City and Topeka.
- Undoing the Regulatory Rollback: The Biden Regulatory Agenda (Webinar)
November 16, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Who’s the turkey? Hopefully not you. Join us for a virtual pre-holiday feast as we work through the federal agency buffet line. The various agencies have been working hard in 2021 to undo the changes put in place by the Trump administration. We will check in on that progress and discuss the changes in place and those soon to come. We will also address any legislative changes or significant court cases that impact the workplace.
- Put a Bow on It: Wrapping Up All Those 2021 Gifts (Webinar)
December 14, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
During this session we will take a look back at 2021’s developments and help make sure you have gotten any key items off your to-do list as you head into 2022. We will also look ahead to 2022 and help you get a head start on the 2022 to-do list.
