Is sending out a “Happy Birthday” message a privacy violation in the workplace because of new data privacy laws? Read more to find out…
When we think of data privacy, we are often concerned with our personal information being sold to third-parties or being used in a less-than scrupulous way that could have a negative impact on our finances, job opportunities and more. That is why comprehensive laws, like GDPR, have been introduced in Europe as well as in other areas of the world, to protect how that data is collected, stored and shared. With new protective laws, however, can come potentially unexpected side effects that organizations should be prepared to manage.
One such affected area is your company Employee Rewards and Recognition Program. These programs inherently tap into an employee’s data because at its core, they are recognizing employees for achievements, milestones, life events and more – all of which can include information that might be deemed private under new mandates.
Don’t guess, and risk potentially hefty fines when it comes to data privacy laws and your employee rewards and recognition program; and enlist the guidance of an industry leader, Madison Performance Group, who has been prepared for and implementing solutions that will keep your program in compliance.
While marijuana is illegal under federal law, many states have followed cultural shifts and recent legislation by legalizing it for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. This has left employer drug tests harder to administer than before in these states. Yet even in some states where it is legal, the law can compel certain types of employers to take action to ensure their workplaces are drug-free.
With employer drug tests have become even harder to administer than in the past, due to virtually full employment. A total of 33 states now have comprehensive medical marijuana programs. 11 states plus the District of Columbia, have legalized the stuff for recreational usage. Employers have every reason to expect more marijuana legislation to pass in the near future.

Morris: With the battle over talent being more critical, EX is a crucial driver of HR value. Onboarding new employees is expensive while keeping existing employees is more cost effective.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with 15,000 employees and less are the engine of the U.S. economy, but in a tight talent market, many are struggling to hire and retain top-performing employees.

Seventy-three percent are challenged by competing with better-known companies for talent, and 75 percent are unsure if candidates will succeed in the role, even after the interview.
