According to a recent study by Bloomberg, people of Generation Z or Gen Z, will outnumber members of the millennial generation by 2019. Millennials are the current dominant age demographic across the world. Members of Generation Z were born after 2001 whereas millennials were born between 1980 and 2000. Just as Baby Boomers and Gen Xers were getting accustomed to the challenges of employing millennials, they must soon prepare for the challenges of employing Gen Zers.

How does one white envelope strike such fear in an employer’s mind?
When unemployment notices come in the mail, we start to feel a sense of dread.

When you receive those white envelopes and you don’t know how to respond, who do you call? At NAE we handle the unemployment process for over 20 employers and we are available for advice for other members. We advocate for every employer while relieving the stress of doing it in-house.

In February of this year, Thoran Towler, our CEO at Nevada Association of Employers, wrote an article for the Reno Gazette Journal that explored recreational cannabis use in relation to Nevada’s waning labor supply. In the article, Towler implicitly raises the question, “Should Nevada employers consider revising their drug policies to accommodate the hiring of legal cannabis users?” There are several factors to consider.

A recent HR Hotline call brought up an issue we see quite frequently: termination of an employee where poor performance has not been documented. By the time we get the call, the company has decided that enough is enough. However, there is no documentation of any past performance issues and there is usually another factor that makes terminating the employee more complicated.

Thank you to everyone who came to Breakfast & Business, presented by Northern Nevada Business View, this morning. Thoran Towler, our CEO, participated as a panelist to discuss the impact of recreational marijuana on Nevada (particularly Nevada business) one year after it was legalized.

Were you at the event? Let us know your thoughts.

I once worked with a manager who could never remember his HR-related acronyms. When it came to FMLA, he called it “LOL WTH.” While this seems humorous at the outset, it isn’t funny when it comes to actually working within the parameters of the FMLA rules.

As you may recall, an Obama era change to the federal overtime rule would have doubled the salary threshold for exempt employees from $23,660 to $47,476. This would mean that, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employee making less than $913 per week would be entitled to overtime for any hours worked beyond 40 in a week. Much to the relief of employers, a federal judge blocked the rule from taking effect 10 days shy of its effective date. The judge ultimately held that the rule was invalid.

Nevertheless, the discussion regarding an increase to the threshold has not gone away.
