Plan/Prevent/Protect: What Employers Must Know — and Do
Brace yourself: Sweeping new federal regulations are in the works that will affect nearly every U.S. business. This new initiative, launched by the U.S. Department of Labor, is known as “Plan/Prevent/Protect” (also known informally as “P-Cubed” or “P3”). P3 will require every entity covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) to make written plans (“Plan”), create processes (“Prevent”), and test the processes with designated compliance employees (“Protect”). It’s a heck of a lot for employers to take on, to say the least.
Labor and employment lawyer Charlie Plumb tackles this complex topic in an in-depth session at the 18th Annual Advanced Employment Issues Symposium, America’s leading employment law conference. Covered topics include:
- What P3 means for you as an employer
- The new responsibilities you may be required to undertake – and when
- When the DOL could presume you’re in “willful” violation of the overtime employee classification rules
- The proposed requirement for testing the effectiveness of safety procedures – and how your workers come into play with the monitoring duties
- How your business is subject to DOL inspections and investigations – and how to reduce your risks
- What you need to do now to ensure compliance and avoid violations
The Advanced Employment Issues Symposium features three days of crucial employment law guidance and lively interaction with the nation’s leading authorities on the best management practices. The event is sponsored by BLR – Business & Legal Resources, the leading information provider helping organizations meet federal and state legal rules and requirements related to employment, safety, and environmental compliance.
