What's going on with everyone regarding the vaccine mandate? How is it effecting companies and how does HR plan to deal with this disaster?!
Just arrived to Sydney from Chicago with my wife and 2 sons both under 2. Escorted to hotel quarantine and spending these 2 weeks trying to figure out if I would/could/should make the move to Sydney permanent. Wife and kids are Australian citizens. Made a list of pros and cons- cons column is empty - the only concern is work. How are you folks doing with COVID economy? Are there significant downsizing? How’s the projected technology consulting pipelines down here?
How to handle the dual employment in BGV? I have a friend who have a overlap of 30-40 days from his last organization which is not disclosed in CV and with current organization. I feel UAN check will spoil it but his overlap is cuz he wasn't able to return assets back during COVID. Any suggestions?
Good news for those who are in recruitment phase in PERM process and were paused due to offices closed. DOL no longer requires physical job notice in offices if they are closed due to covid...now job notice can be posted electronically and recruitment can wrap up.
Husband tested positive for COVID while on a business trip this week. He’s coming home tomorrow and I’m terrified of catching it (am 31 weeks pregnant.) I am vaccinated and boosted.
We have a relatively large house so I’ve prepared a guest bedroom where he’s going to continue to quarantine but any other tips on staying safe that worked for you if someone tested positive in your house when someone test positive?
How have y’all been able to recover from relationships that ended in a mature way where neither party was objectively wrong/both still care for each other? Covid times caused life events that exacerbated my partner’s depression which triggered my anxiety. After a heart to heart, we decided that it’d be better for both of us to separate. My past relationships ended due to cheating/toxicity, so I’m having trouble on how to navigate this.
Help please! College daughter signed lease at her sorority house. School went remote so she’s never moved in. Sorority is threatening to give her an eviction notice which I assume would end up on her credit record... Any ideas how to fight this? The only reason she didn’t move in was due to Covid and school closing dorms... We got an abatement from the dorms last semester. Any ideas?
Hyd folks - Heard first hand horror stories of friends struggling to get care at hospitals for family members with COVID. Even with all the money and influence. Stay safe!
If you recently had a baby, would you tell friends/family they needed to be vaccinated to be around them?
So i have a question for any physicians out there. Out of all of these COVID-19 cases that develop PNA, how many have you seen end up septic? And do these septic covid patients respond well to the 3-6 hour sepsis bundles? Has there been alteration in the treatment for sepsis secondary to covid-19? Asking out of curiosity...
Who else is worried about flu season with covid? One it may compound it and make it worse, and two the symptoms are so similar everyone will be freaking out
I am heading into IVF and the clinic made us sign a document saying if one of us is tested positive for COVID, the whole procedure will be canceled. The testing must be performed at their site. My husband’s mom has been organizing a big family trip for two months. I already excused myself from that trip. But I am very worried my husband my get covid from this trip. His mom has a lot of friends who don’t believe in Covid, and she volunteers at a 2nd hand store. What would you do if you were me
Seeking advice. Has anyone negotiated severance pay during covid? I was just laid off after being with the company for 3yrs, working countless hours of overtime that I was never compensated for as an exempt employee and they only offered me two weeks pay as severance. Would appreciate feedback. #severance #covid #layoff
We would have 0 cases if we never tested! Genius!
Curious if anyone has a take on the following. My sis’s wedding is in 3 weeks in Dubai. My fam all lives in NYC and has tix to fly out Jan 7 (one week before wedding). My sis and I have covid now, future BIL had it last week, Mom and Dad tested negative y’day (but they were exposed to us couple days ago so they’re testing again tmrw). Dubai is about three weeks behind US Omicron wise. We all need to clear PCR to fly out. Question is do we fly out Jan 7 as planned or one week early? (cont)
I keep getting surprised each month by our firm financial reports indicating we are relatively on track with our pre-Covid budget, while also watching our overall billable hour numbers for the year continue to go down. So, it is really 2021, when our 2020 backlog AR won’t be rolling in, that I should really be planning to hunker down for?? Seems a bit like the disconnected stock market to economy.
Does HCL provide work from home?
What was the situation pre covid? I live in Gurgaon and HCL doesn’t have an office here, would there be an expectation to travel to Noida everyday?
I graduated during Covid with a double major in business administration and business management with a minor in marketing and magically ended up in sales because I needed a job. I’m about to take a data analytics course to make an attempt to break into that field. I’m currently looking for a mentor to help guide me during this time. Also, if anyone is willing to look over my resume and give me tips on how to make it more presentable for recruiters in DA that would be very helpful. Thanks

Cleared my first round in HCL on 24th Feb, Second round on 4th March, HR discussion on 8th March, another HR discussion (CTC negotiation) on 24th March. Everytime I am getting a response that CTC is awaiting delivery approval. Now HR is not responding to my calls/mails. I have requested many times to provide status even if it's rejected, but no response at all.

Any opinions on what the salary for a Benefits Manager with 16 years of benefits experience 6 of which are in the benefits manager role should be? Currently making $80k and have both my PHR and SHRM-CP certifications.
I've been in PeopleOps (mostly focused on TA Ops) for over 9 years now. I've somehow gotten by without a degree in HR or a certification, but would like to get some more education to continue to advance my career. What are your thoughts on PHR vs SPHR vs SHRM for someone with my years of experience and current role as a manager?

Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

College hr specialist salary?
Hello everyone. I never thought about making a career out of hr but its definitely something that I want to do now. Eventually, my goal is to become an HRIS analyst. At ADP i worked as a technical support analyst and helped clients with anything from troubleshooting system issues to reporting to processing payroll and much more. I've applied to over 100 positions and havent even advanced to a single interview. It has been rejection after rejection. Any suggestions on which positions to focus on?
From what I hear, it'll take months (at a minimum) for the fed govt to finalize this requirement. It will take some time for them to actually write the details (which they haven't yet), and then there is expected to be legal challenges, etc. So for now, I wouldn't take any action but definitely worth learning how others plan to do it so you know too when it comes time
We are preparing and looking at all our options around testing and tracking.
This is an interesting policy gesture, but in practice, I can’t imagine how it will realistically work on a broad scale. I think it’s going to cause a lot of chaos, and finally, many companies will throw up their hands and tell the government it’s just not viable.
It's already been proven not viable.
I'd like to posit that vaccine mandates are already in place for most employees. The only difference is that instead of asking for proof of vaccination (against things like smallpox, measles, etc.), they ask for your degree. Employers don't have to ask for proof of those vaccinations because it is understood that you've already fulfilled those requirements through higher education. So when people say this vaccine mandate is "unprecedented" and "unenforceable", I would like you to pause for a moment and ask why this is any different from any of the other times you were mandated to participate in a system that is simply trying to save your life.
I don’t need “a system” run by my employer to save my life. Today marks month 7 of post-infection for me. Doing just fine and don’t need Big Daddy Employer to “keep me safe.” I do that by working remotely and staying metabolically healthy.
And what if an employee already had Covid so they don't need the vaccine?
Just stopping by to let Accenture 1 know that I had covid twice, around 12 months apart. Reinfection DOES happen.
We will be continuing what we are doing now and recommending it and if they do not want to get it they have to test … also having covid does not mean you can’t get it again and you still should be vaccinated. I have an employee that has has it 3 times so far…
We are requesting that all employees on vaccinated by the 17th. Or at least have one shot by the 17th monitoring the employees after the fact is also something that we’ve kept in mind ive collected all vaccination cards￼.
We are also taking copies of cards and tracking them in a spreadsheet
Since we have a couple sites in California we already mandated weekly testing back using a 3rd party vendor (Color) in December. Starting in June those who were vaccinated can opt out. Weekly testing has actually been very helpful once they got used to the process
Not sure how they can enforce mandates for empmoyees of companies that have and will continue to be remote.
Interesting how, now that the OSHA rule is out, remote workers are specifically excluded!
Looks like the OSHA "emergency temporary standard" (not an OSHA "rule") is on a fast track. Get ready for both compliance--as well as lawsuits from a bunch of states' attorneys general, and I suspect, immediate injunctions against the "not really a rule." From Bloomberg:
The U.S. Labor Department advanced an emergency regulation for final White House review that will force many private-sector companies to require employee vaccinations or virus testing.
DOL’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration sent the rule to the White House’s regulatory office Tuesday, the agency announced. Although the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs can sometimes take months to conclude its analysis, President Joe Biden called for an expedited process, which could mean the office will give its OK in as little as a day.
OSHA would then be able to publish the emergency temporary standard, and it would take effect immediately. Historically, the agency has provided businesses with a short period before they’d be required to comply.
Interestingly, OSHA has only issued NINE of these "not a rule" standards over time--and of the six that were challenge in court, only ONE was allowed to go into effect.
