A medical office needs to be compliant with employment laws; this will ensure they do not have lawsuits that could patiently put a company out of business. This also helps the offices run smoothly and free from errors. There are several employment laws a few of them are the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The American with Disabilities (ADA) is when an employer is to provide reasonable accommodation to an employee with a known mental or physical limitation, or a qualified individual with a
AB266 was presented by Assemblywoman Neal. The purpose of this bill is to allow employers to deduct Family Medical Leave wages paid by the employer to an employee who has taken leave under certain circumstances. The amount of the deduction is equal to the Family Medical Leave wages paid during that period and allows that deduction against the amounts reported for the calculation of certain taxes. The Department of Taxation submitted a fiscal note of $86,147 in FY 18 and $61,477 in FY 19 based on the original bill. Assemblywoman Neal noted that the amount of the deduction is limited to $500 per employee per week with a maximum length of 12 weeks.

 If a doctor or health care provider says their patient is sick and unable to work during their pregnancy, they may be able to get up to 12 weeks off without pay under this law.
The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) was established to help protect employees who missed work for medical reasons. "The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides employees job protection in case of family or medical emergency. FMLA permits eligible employees to take up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period." (Martocchio, 2003) The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is responsible for administrating and enforcing most of the labor laws, including FMLA.
The Family and Medical Aid Act (FLMA), of 1993, provides for 12 weeks of unpaid, job protected leave for certain specified events (8). Whilst one could refer to this as maternity or paternity leave if taken because of a pregnancy, this would not be strictly true. Where maternity and paternity leave are offered around the
When an employee has a baby they could be eligible for maternity leave and maternity pay. You have the right to maternity leave regardless of how long you've been in your job, how many hours you work, or how much you're paid. This is also the case for antenatal appointments. You are legally entitled to reasonable paid time off to attend antenatal appointments. Employees must take a minimum of 2 weeks off work (or 4 weeks if they are a factory worker).
Paternity leave should be a right for all male workers for two weeks. Paternity leave is a period of absence from work granted to a father after or shortly before the birth of his child. Usually, pregnant women who are nearly due for delivery are able to take parental leave from their employment, what about men? Shouldn’t they have the ability to go on leave for the birth of their children? Paternity leave should be granted for male workers for many reasons. This essay will consider some of those reasons, such as if the partner is not well after the birth of the child, needs care and supervision or if she is going through tough pregnancy and needs her male partner to assist her delivering their child. It is also important for an infant-father bonding as much as an infant-mother bonding after the child is born. Also if a horrible circumstance occurs like mother passing away during her delivery, that would leave the father as the first and only carer.
Ryan and Herod (2006, p.494) indicates that the WorkChoices act contributed to the decline of union membership in Australia. Prior to the commencement of the act, the rights of employers and employees were regulated by industrial tribunals, unions and employment associations. It is detailed that the primary intentions of the WorkChoices act was to limit the power and influence of unions and support individual bargaining in contractual agreements. It is also argued that regulations could only be altered or changed by these counterparts, with the input of lawyers (Bray and Waring 2006, p.46), which proved to be time consuming (Howe 2013, p.138).
After the abolition of slavery, the resentment which former slaves felt at their exploitation and the low wages plantation managers were prepared to pay, (which were below what a family could live on), turned the former plantation workers against work in agriculture. This refusal to continue to work on the plantations became, in an industrial relations context, the first "withdrawal of labour" or strike action. Eaton (2002) purports that the industrial relations response by the state, which was coeval with the mercantile class, co-operated in defeating the workers' protest action by
Most women employees are entitled to take time off work to have a baby. This time off is called maternity leave. It is your right to take maternity leave no matter how long you have worked for your employer.
Since my last journal entry much has happened during my internship. Picking up from where I left off on the last journal entry, I have transitioned from getting familiar with the various tax software, to filing individual tax returns daily. I have been working on form 1040 NR, which is the tax return for non-resident aliens of the United States. The highlight of my work experience since the last journal entry is learning more information on filing tax returns. Not only am I getting faster at completing my work, but I am also learning how to do more complex returns. Some people’s tax returns are very easy/basic and only require entering the taxpayer’s personal information and wages from the W-2. Others however, required analysis of different receipts, invoices, and paystubs so that you can use as many allowed deductions and exclusions as possible resulting in getting the client the highest refund as possible. Although this may not sound like a very exciting “highlight”, it is very useful for me to learn as much tax related information as possible because it will help me prepare for
