FRAMINGHAM, MA …
Administrative Business Resources (ABR), a company that specializes helping human resource departments automate their services, recently hosted its first live Webinar with special guest, Frank Aubuchon, owner of Aubuchon Associates, an independent HR consulting firm.
The 30-minute Webinar, hosted by ABR President Sheldon Prenovitz, addressed “Common HR Mistakes” as part of Aubuchon’s presentation.
“These are challenging times for everyone, but particularly small businesses. This Webinar was kind of an HR 101 for the small business owner who due to size and budget constraints handles HR issues without the benefit of an HR staff,” said Prenovitz.
Held on March 18, here’s a snapshot of some of the “Common Mistakes” covered by Aubuchon during the presentation:
● Failure to establish an effective sexual harassment policy
● Failing to pay overtime to nonexempt employees
● Failing to quickly discharge poor performing employees
● Classifying employees as independent contractors
● Being proactive in keeping your workforce union free
● Not completing I-9 forms for new employees
“Having somebody of Frank’s caliber discuss these issues gave attendees a lot of information in a very short amount of time,” said Prenovitz. “He’s the level of guest we’re hoping to have for future Webinars.”
Prior to starting Aubuchon & Associates, Aubuchon was a regional director of human resources for a Fortune 1000 company. In addition, he’s also a former assistant vice president of Human Resources at Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts and has taught numerous courses on HR-related topics.
