O&MM Fabricator - March/April 2017 - 35

"Be aware, too, that effective August 1,
2016, the OSHA posting fines have
increased from $7,000 to $12,471, and the
combined potential penalties for federal
posting violations now exceed $32,000."
* Safety Violations Carry Huge Liability
"Lax workplace safety can result in a
slew of negative consequences, including
expensive workers' compensation claims and
insurance, even orders stopping work at your
job sites," says Wulffson. "Review your policies periodically to ensure compliance with
evolving standards, train all supervisors and
employees, and strictly enforce workplace
safety rules - before an accident occurs.
Consider having a consultant do a periodic
assessment of your policies and job sites.
Being proactive and consistent can go a long
way toward reducing claims and fines."
* Essential Recordkeeping
"Another critical component of workplace compliance is employee recordkeeping," Kaplan says. "Employers should keep
three specific files for each employee: a
general file, a payroll file and a medical file.
"The general file covers documentation
regarding the employee's tenure and performance, such as resumes, hiring paperwork,
reviews and training verification.
"A payroll file includes records related
to wages and other monetary benefits. This
includes accurate time records for all hourly/
non-exempt employees, records that are especially critical given the new FLSA overtime
rules that went into effect December 1, 2016.

"Last - and perhaps most critical  -
employers need to maintain a separate medical file with documentation related to medical
conditions (such as FMLA paperwork, health
insurance forms and doctor's notes). These
records may be subject to HIPAA regulations
and the Americans with Disabilities Act, so
they must be kept strictly confidential and
apart from other personnel records."
"Retention timeframes matter, too."
Kaplan says. "For example, personnel
records related to wages must be stored
for two years, per FLSA requirements,

and FMLA paperwork must be saved for
at least three years. Also, OSHA requires
employers to keep records on employees
who become injured or ill due to the job for
at least five years."
There are, of course, many other elements in a complete program of skilled
employment practices. Many of these
are best learned from your own experience and work environment. Most of
these will come naturally if you keep in
mind the importance of building your own
unique program.
