Sklover Working Wisdom

One was established in 2000, and the other established in 2008. Frankly, we expected that Kathy, as a Human Resources professional, would have – or should have – known about the basic mechanisms of her long-term incentive compensation. Nor are the problems derived from Benefits and Compensation failing to provide our clients with all necessary calculations. Let’s take a few minutes to make sure you understand the basic concepts of long-term incentive compensation: 1.

Compensation : These are the people who figure out how much you should be paid. You'll also find people labeled HR Analyst, or Compensation Analyst in this group. First I must say how much I’ve enjoyed your blog – it helped me a lot when I applied for a new job last year. Now (for only the second time in my career) I work for a company that is large enough to actually have an HR department!

How Sending My Child to School Taught Me About Why People Hate HR

Leave Policy Missing In Action

Evil HR Lady

Well, maybe compensation.) A long-time employee went out on sick leave a couple of months ago, and has recently expressed the intention of remaining on leave for the next six months. The person is genuinely unable to work and has indicated informally that a return to the workforce is unlikely even though the health condition involved does not reduce life-span. I have received mixed messages from HR about what options are available to this employee and/or to me as the supervisor.

Following my own career advice about job skills

Career Key

Encountering subjects ranging from family law to unemployment compensation, I was reintroduced to reasons why I enjoyed having my own practice - but now without the tedious business side. Some of my recent posts focused on improving career options by gaining new job skills and keeping job skills fresh through volunteerism or internships. As proof that I follow my own advice, last week I started volunteering as an attorney with my neighborhood legal clinic on occasional Tuesday nights.

Unpaid, Uncompensated Overtime

Evil HR Lady

We anticipated this at point of hire, and vague promises were forwarded to compensate with additional paid time off (PTO). I have a title, more than two employees, satisfy the salary requirement, and have weight given to my decisions to hire , fire, task assignment, etc. So I'm exempt right? I am salaried for 40 hr. a week, about half of the work year I repeatedly put in 70 hrs. a week performing predictable,rotational, maintenance labor identical to that of my employees.

We can train you how to look at compensation data. Set up some informational interviews to learn about what a compensation analyst really does.

Excessive Sick Time

Evil HR Lady

I think it's fair to get compensated for the work you do for Bob's clients. I have worked for a company in Northern California for over 5 years. We have a small inside sales force that is extremely busy and we are all exempt employees. We are paid on commission (after our salary is covered). The company policy does not have a sick time policy for exempt employees and everyone is good about it but one of our top sales people.

You Just Don't Understand

Evil HR Lady

But, even so, your manager needs to realize that granting one employee flexibility should not mean dumping work on another employee without adequately compensating that employee. My job involves ten and a half months of working 9-5 and six weeks of working 8-8 and occasional weekends due to government department deadlines Apart from my co-worker, J, who works 9-5 throughout, because she has kids.

Taking Advantage of an Exempt Employee

Evil HR Lady

I know I could ask for monetary compensation and I would probably be granted it. However I don’t really want monetary compensation, I want to work less hours so I can spend more time with my family. I’m a medical administrator of a nonprofit organization. I am married and have young children. When I was hired, my job description indicated that my work was split between 50% patient care and 50% administrative and I was told it was a 37.5 hour work week.

Exiting an Employee

Of course, the answer is usually something involving poor compensation structures, but I digress.) I am a head-hunter. I like to think I am a good head-hunter (we are all deluded in some way, I suppose) and I try and help my clients and my candidates get the job (I do get a fee when I do that properly).

Government Help

Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable. I am a manager of a very small, service oriented company(20 employees). I was promoted 3 years ago to my current position from the bookkeeper's position. I came with no previous HR experience, training or college degree. I have learned what I do know, right or wrong, by researching.
