Finding out that someone with your title and job description makes more money than you can rattle your nerves. Here’s how to handle it:
Issue: Half of all HR professionals say they've approved FMLA requests that they believed weren't legitimate. Risk: Employees who "work" the system to earn ...

Raleigh, N.C.-based Morganite Industries has reaped a 178% return on the investment it made to put its benefits enrollment, communication and data exchange online. It took only seven months for the 2,500-employee organization—which provides tax, benefits, health, safety and financial services for its parent company, Morgan Crucible—to recoup its initial investment.

Administrative pros looking for a way to stretch their skills often turn toward certification. But do the Certified Professional Secretary (CPS) and Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) ratings help you advance your career? Or command a higher salary? Are they worth the work and cost?

As they see colleagues laid off and their employers cutting back, employees are more concerned than ever about their own job security. It makes sense for employers to address stress issues in their workforces, since increased stress affects not only employees, but employers’ bottom lines.

Q. One of our employees has a sick parent who lives in another country. She wants FMLA leave to care for the parent. Is FMLA available under the circumstances? And how would I verify the authenticity of a foreign medical certification?

While there is no “correct” HR-to-staff ratio, one HR professional per 100 employees is a generally accepted starting point. But HR-to-staff ratios have become less precise—and harder to interpret—due to the economic downturn, layoffs and the continued growth of outsourcing. Still worth measuring?
