Seminar on Using Statistics in Compensation By David Wudyka
8/28/2014 9:00 AM - 8/29/2014 6:00 PM
Hilton Grand Vacations Suites at the Flamingo Las Vegas, Nevada United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview:

Compensation professionals use "descriptive statistics" to convey the characteristics of data used in the development and management of pay programs. In this webinar, David J. Wudyka will describe a series of statistical concepts used by Compensation practitioners. The concepts to be covered include ideas such as pay structure development; "control points" in pay ranges, including minimums, midpoints and maximums; weighted and unweighted averages; means, medians and modes; weighted and unweighted averages; regression and correlation analysis; standard deviations, variance and data ranges; compa-ratios, and independent and dependent variables; and more.

All of these concepts will be explained in the context of their application in pay programs, including building a pay structure (i.e. sets of pay ranges), analyzing pay survey data, predicting

Executive base pay rates and total compensation from one or more independent variables, making associations in pay data between independent and dependent variables, and using comp ratios in merit pay programs and their budgeting.

Summary:

Overview:

The federal FMLA requires employers to grant eligible employees at least 12 weeks of unpaid medical leave in the event of an employee's serious illness or the serious illness of immediate family members. As much as 26 weeks of leave is available to families caring for certain military service personnel, in addition to leave to care for seriously ill or injured military personnel the FMLA. Military families may also get up to 12 weeks of leave for a "qualified exigency," which includes such circumstances as preparing for immediate deployment. FMLA leave can be taken in one continuous period of time or taken from time to time as needed.

The issues that arise for employers include knowing, among others, when an employee has a "serious health condition" as defined by law and not by the employer's doctor, when an employer can seek verification from a physician that the employee still cannot return to work, and what notices employers must provide and when.

This program is designed to provide an overview of the FMLA and the relevant regulations, to discuss amendments or modifications from the last few years, to discuss integrating FMLA with your other leave programs and to provide suggestions as to how to minimize employee abuse of this valuable benefit.

Why should you attend:

New developments include the application of the statute to same-sex couples (in at least16 states), expanded benefits for military families and clearer guidelines in the regulations.

Virtually every HR Director in a company of 50 or more employees will have to administer FMLA leave. One of the most common complaints among employers, however, is that some employees will seek to abuse FMLA leave. Such abuse can impose significant cost upon employers in terms of time and money.
