President's Message

 

 

Welcome to April, to Spring and to the beginning of Q2. This time of year brings the start of longer days, more sunshine, hopefully the cessation of snow, and the celebration of life. How fitting that the 'March For Our Lives' occurred this past weekend, focusing on powerful messages from articulate passionate youth coming together as a community with one voice and one mission regardless of their geography, nationality and background. This march represented a unique example of building community as I defined in my January President's message:

  • Dialogue and connection
  • Collaboration, being curious and courageous
  • Innovating and co-creating solutions
  • Transparent open and honest communication

What can we learn from these empowering young people? As HR Professionals we are uniquely poised for and called to "be bold and aim for monumental impact not mere incremental change" as SHRM President and Chief Executive Officer Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. said. We must move forward together, "we are being asked to step in, step up and stand out" said Johnny C. Taylor.

With that in mind you voiced your opinions and we listened. In response to the CHRA member survey results we:

  1. Held our membership dues steady for the 21st year resulting in a record high renewal rate in the first quarter of 2018
  2. Will start offering educational opportunities via webinar in June to allow for our members to receive information and CEUs while joining at the convenience of your desk
  3. Will build connections with our business community during the Spring Conference by interacting directly with a panel of local experts discussing best practices of engaging with our community and supporting our community by promoting a food drive for the Maryland Food Bank both during the conference and online
  4. Are offering an opportunity to network and socialize with your fellow HR colleagues during a night at Oriole Park on 7-13-18 and ticket purchase details can be found in this newsletter and on the CHRA website under events
  5. Incorporated your feedback regarding the topics you want to hear into the call for speakers for our monthly programs
  6. We will begin having an ambassador at our monthly meetings to connect with new members and officially welcome you to CHRA
  7. Will define volunteerism in CHRA and describe ways you can get involved

I encourage us to find our voice and to look for opportunities to, be bold, brave and brilliant!
 

Your President,


Lori Raggio, PHR, SHRM-CP

Maryland Healthy Working Families Act: The DLLR Updates FAQs, Poster and Issues Model Policies

 Submitted by CHRA Legislative Liaison, Donna Glover, Esq.

 

 

According to the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation’s (“DLLR”) website, the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance has received more than 2,000 emails from employers and employees with questions about complying with the Healthy Working Families Act (“HWFA”).


In light of all those questions, the DLLR has issued an updated poster for employers to use, and it has updated its FAQs. Notably, the FAQs clarify that the HWFA does not apply to employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement (“CBA”) that was entered into before June 1, 2017 for the duration of the contract term, excluding any extensions, options to extend, or renewals of the term of the original agreement. But, the HWFA covers employees under CBAs entered into on or after June 1, 2017, unless the CBA contains terms which clearly and expressly waive the requirements of the HWFA. (See FAQs 9 and 10). The DLLR also addresses questions regarding the interface of the HWFA and Maryland Prevailing Wage Projects. (See FAQs 15 and 16).


Although the FAQs do not specifically address the question of whether an employer may pay a 100% commission employee the prevailing minimum wage rate when they use sick and safe time, the answer is “no.” The HWFA provides that if an employee’s pay is not reduced for use of sick and safe time, then the employer would be compliance, or an employer may impute an average hourly wage for an employee based on commissions earned for a fixed period and pay the employee at that rate for absences due to sick and safe leave. Thus, using the prevailing minimum wage would not be permissible.


Finally, the DLLR has issued three model policies for employers’ use – one for employers that choose to front load sick and safe time; one for employers using the accrual method, and one restaurant employers, which covers the special HWFA provisions governing tipped workers. Those model policies to do not address considerations such as interface with the Family and Medical Leave Act or with the Maryland Parental Leave Act, or with an employer’s own leave policies, including an existing PTO, vacation or sick time policies.

Taming the Taboo- Encouraging Honest Dialog in the Workplace

Submitted by Bettina Straight

“I’m not even sure how to talk to some people these days, it all feels so tense around here.” These were words a colleague of mine shared recently regarding conversations among her colleagues. “I feel like there aren’t a lot of safe topics to discuss, even though they are at the top of mind for most of us.” Lately, the number of calls I receive to assist teams in determining where the line between office chitchat and inappropriate discussion falls has increased. What I’m finding in my exploration of the concerns is that sensitivity is heightened and assumptions abound, making our environments more challenging to navigate.


It’s difficult to avoid the us vs. them mentality swirling around us, but as HR professionals we must use our experience and skills to help others maintain respectful, productive office cultures. Getting back to the basics of civility and professionalism is key, but so is providing people the space to share what might be on their minds and hearts. At a small forum made up of HR team members, I recently asked the group, “How are current events impacting you personally, and how can the rest of us be supportive of you?” Framing the discussion this way allowed people to share and more importantly, to listen to how others’ lives were effected by a variety of social issues. In this setting, colleagues had a chance to open up about serious subjects without the matter being up for debate or argument. Together, we listened with empathy and compassion, rather than snap judgements and stereotypes.


While not all departments will have an opportunity to hold such open forums, when we develop relationships with our colleagues that are grounded in respect, it is easier to connect. When you know someone personally, you are less likely to make assumptions and more likely to care. My strategy for increasing sensitivity and improve a department’s culture always begins by addressing the interpersonal dynamics among members. The goal is to remind people of our basic need to be heard and to build upon the desire we all have to work in a space that values and celebrates our differences.


I look forward to exploring the ways we can foster positive, respectful work environments at the CHRA Diversity meeting on May 16, 2018.

 

 Bettina Straight is currently the Organizational Development Consultant at Mercy Medical Center and has been training on various leadership and diversity topics for over 20 years. Having worked in higher education and healthcare, Bettina has years of first-hand experience watching people struggle to relate to one another in an open, honest way. As a trainer, her goal is to help participants see a subject from a new perspective, to engage them in respectful, honest, and productive conversation, and to leave them with a sense of connectedness and new understanding.

SHRM Member Advocacy


SHRM’s A-Team Program Reaches Exciting Milestone, Showcases Growth and Strength. On March 21, SHRM’s Advocacy Team reached unprecedented strength with its 10,000th new member. Created in 2010, SHRM’s HR advocacy army has grown year after year, adding HR volunteers from all 50 states and every congressional district across the country to SHRM’s advocacy efforts. Special thanks are extended to the HR professionals and SHRM state councils and chapters who value HR advocacy and care enough to step up and take action, individually and as a team! This network of volunteers has moved the needle on critical policy issues and legislation, such as advocating in support of SHRM’s workplace flexibility legislation, employer-provided benefits in the context of the recently completed tax debate. Through SHRM’s HR Policy Action Center, A-Team members have engaged on social media and by meeting in-person with lawmakers throughout the year—most recently during SHRM’s Employment Law & Legislative Conference. To read more about the SHRM A-Team program and efforts—and to join the HR advocacy army—explore our A-Team resources.
