ObamaCare, Minimum-Wage Hike To Spike Calif. Low-End Labor Costs 50%

Compensation for California’s lowest-paid workers will rise as much as 50% or more per hour by 2016 due to the state’s minimum-wage hike and ObamaCare’s employer penalties.

But total wages earned by a full-time worker today making close to the minimum wage may not rise at all and may well decrease.

This one-two punch is likely to miss its mark as employers bob and weave to avoid ObamaCare fines. Instead, it may hit California’s low-wage workers with fewer hours or fewer new jobs. Read More…

When was the last time you updated your employee handbook? Recent guidance from the EEOC on social media and applicant criminal backgrounds are but two reasons you may want to review the policies in your employee handbook. Making sure your policies reflect current practices is also important. For example, have you changed your holidays, benefits, paydays, or other practices since your handbook was last reviewed? Employee handbooks can be valuable for employers and employees alike. Handbooks should be welcoming, written in easily understood language instead of legalese, and clearly define employee rights and responsibilities. Done poorly, however, employee handbooks can create liability and confusion. Read More…

Obamacare Drives a Bull Market In Staffing Agencies

A “red hot bull market” is currently being driven by the pending implementation of Obamacare next year, Jim Cramer said Thursday.

Although President Barack Obama signed the health care reform bill into law on March 23, 2010, many of the changes to the health care system won’t take effect until 2014. Per the reforms, companies that employ more than 50 full-time workers will either need to provide their employees with costly health care coverage or pay penalties of up to $3,000. Read More…
