Written by Foulston's Tim O'Sullivan, an attorney in our estate planning department, this book includes an objective discussion of most factors involved in the estate planning process. Unlike most estate planning books designed for the general public, it specifically addresses the impact of Kansas laws on estate planning issues and techniques. The author believes this book is one of the most comprehensive and informative overviews available to assist Kansas residents in either implementing an estate plan or reviewing an existing estate plan.
In response to significant demand from healthcare providers throughout Kansas, Foulston attorneys have developed a comprehensive HIPAA Handbook for Healthcare Providers. The Handbook includes reference tools, sample forms, and sample policies and procedures you can utilize in developing your HIPAA implementation program. Unlike products marketed nationwide, these materials have been developed over a two-year period to address unique aspects of Kansas law. Included with the Handbook is a CD-ROM containing all of the documents in Word format. If you prefer, our lawyers can assist in customizing these documents for an additional charge.
Complying with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can be costly and confusing for employers. Foulston Siefkin’s FMLA Compliance Manual & Forms can help you deal with the legal and practical complexities of the FMLA.
This manual, newly revised for 2013, contains everything you need to bring your policies and forms up to date. The manual is a complete reference guide to the FMLA and regulations to help you understand how these requirements apply to your organization. Model policies, notices, letters, certifications, and other forms you need to process and manage leave requests are included in both print and electronic format to help you save time, money, and headaches.
OSHA's amendments to the Hazard Communication ("HAZCOM") standard required employers to provide training to their employees on the new label elements and new safety data sheet by December 1, 2013. While that deadline has passed, covered employers can (and should) still become compliant by providing the training. If OSHA conducts an audit, employers who have provided the training before OSHA arrives (even if it was a little late) will be in a much better position to avoid potential monetary fines than those who haven't yet provided the training. The scope of the HAZCOM standard is broad and applies to any employers with employees who may have access to any hazardous chemical in the course of their work duties. The standard is not limited to only manufacturing companies or chemical producers.
In order to assist employers with this requirement, attorneys at Foulston Siefkin have prepared a presentation-ready PowerPoint that meets OSHA’s requirements for the mandatory training. This presentation provides detailed explanations of the new label elements and safety data sheet changes, and offers an easy to navigate, do-it-yourself format.
The presentation includes:
- PowerPoint Slides
- Speaking Notes to assist the presenter
- A sample Chemical Label compliant with the new requirements
- Side by Side comparison of the old and new Hazard Communication Standards
- Detailed Explanations of the new label elements and safety data sheet
