HR Support and Training: NAE’s Human Resource Consultants | Elko, NV

Well-run businesses have an HR staff with expertise in employment law. However, the changing legal landscape means that staff members must continually develop their skills to serve their company. With the assistance of Nevada Association of Employers and its human resource consultants, Elko businesses can keep their staff trained and well-versed in HR requirements.

Statutory compliance is a key area in which businesses seek guidance from NAE’s human resource consultants. Elko companies often have questions about wage and hour; Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Below, we cover the concerns that businesses have and how NAE helps to resolve them.

Wage and Hour

Federal wage and hour laws define requirements for minimum wage, overtime, and child labor, among other issues. Human resource professionals need to know these laws to help companies set employee salaries and schedule employee work.

However, federal and state laws do not always match. Nevada, for example, has a unique set of daily overtime regulations as well as two separate minimum wage standards. The overlap with federal law can be very confusing.

NAE’s human resource consultants can clarify these issues for companies in Elko. We offer training classes that HR staff can attend near their workplace. During these sessions, we explain the state’s wage and hour requirements so that businesses can remain in compliance.

As an alternative, members of NAE can call our HR hotline. The hotline is available on-demand, and our experts can answer questions about specific employer situations. It’s another way that businesses can get the information they need when they need it.

Family and Medical Leave Act

FMLA entitles eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave for certain family and medical reasons. Companies need to be prepared for FMLA so that they can run their business while the employee is out.

Human resource consultants at NAE can advise Elko businesses about FMLA. Our staff helps companies determine whether employees are eligible and how to ensure business continuance in their absence. Member businesses can attend training through our events, and they can connect with consultants via the HR hotline.

Americans with Disabilities Act

The ADA is a federal law prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities in employment and in other areas of public life. It also sets requirements for accommodating these individuals in their work.

Often, HR staff members have questions about whether a disability is covered by the law and whether a worker’s circumstances qualify as a disability. With membership in NAE, they can turn to our professional team for guidance. We can also train supervisors how to comply with ADA and how to provide accommodations for workers.
