A Message from Our President

As summer ends and school begins, additional preparation may be required due to the status of COVID-19 and it’s impact on our working environments.

We may have had a “taste” of what it’s like since most schools closed physically and virtual learning was instituted for many back in March.  How is the new school year going to affect working parents that may be different than before?

Since many have instituted the “stay at home” working conditions, what will it be like for those who do return to their physical work location while their children are learning from home?  How can Employers assist during these times?

Some employers have allowed a more lenient “work/life” balance, accommodating those parents who have young kids that are of school age requiring supervision, or even younger kids who no longer have adequate day-care. 

Yes, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) has been in place since April 1, 2020, providing financial relief by some Employers to its’ employees with qualifying reasons such as child care.  However, for many this has been exhausted.  Now what?  These are issues that need to be considered carefully as we enter this 4th quarter of 2020.

Programs, like the ones SAHRMA and it’s affiliate SHRM provides, offer thought-provoking insights to dilemmas like these.  Now’s the time to become more educated as Employers and Employees on how to navigate through these times.

The upcoming Employment Law Conference SAHRMA holds yearly will address topics like this to include how to confront continued needs for leave, minimizing legal claims, and even a fun way of addressing hot topics.  For more information, or to register for this event on 8/19/2020, please click on this link:  https://sahrma.org/event-3770965/Registration

It is our hope programs such as the ones SAHRMA offers bring rich resources and suggestions you can use today.  SAHRMA has sought ways to increase our value to you by bringing these resources to the forefront.  Check out what’s new on our website:  www.sahrma.org.  Take advantage of your membership renewals with the $20 in ‘20 discount:  https://sahrma.org/Renew-A-Membership
