Simplify Health Care Questions

Whether or not you provide health care insurance for your employees, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is the law of the land. Everyone is required to carry health insurance, so your employees need answers—and since you’re the boss, they’re likely to look to you as the expert. Make it easier on them, and yourself, by taking a few minutes to prepare with tools that keep it simple.
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) offers a series of videos that you can show, download or embed (with permission). Straightforward illustrations explain complex health care and insurance basics in both English and Spanish. The videos include:
  • Health Reform Hits Main Street
  • The YouToons Get Ready for Obamacare

The KFF site also offers: 
  • Quizzes about health care topics.
  • Frequently asked questions about small business taxes.

Health care laws across the United States are laws in transition. Having simple tools and knowledge on hand can save time and tension, and help you and your employees navigate changes.

3 Sexual Harassment Policy Tips

Owning your own company comes with a lot of perks. You might get your name on the door, your own parking space and a little more flexibility than others, but there’s also great responsibility when it comes to employees—especially if treading the murky waters of sexual harassment.

Business owners are legally required to investigate claims of any unwanted verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, including offensive remarks about a person’s gender, inappropriate jokes or retaliation against the accuser. Sexual harassment is not always overt, so if you receive a complaint, take it seriously. The moment it’s made, the employee is protected. It’s in your best interest to investigate quickly and thoroughly.
Institute a zero-tolerance policy and provide training for employees; prevention is the best antidote for sexual harassment. However, should a situation arise, make sure to:
  • Immediately investigate and document everything.
  • Listen with care and remain impartial.
  • Separate the accuser and the accused.
Remember, even an offhand comment can quickly become an out-of-control situation. If a harassment case is proven, a small business owner could potentially be held accountable, and the cost can be substantial.
