Employment Law Alphabet Soup

By Merideth Akers, CPA, PHR, Comptroller for Bradford W. Caraway (Birmingham, AL)

I have taught Compensation and Benefits to candidates preparing to take the Professional in Human Resources certification exam. These two topics include a great amount of employment law. So, I know just enough about employment law to be scared… or maybe cautious is a better term. I am not a lawyer, and this article is in no way to be construed as giving legal advice.

I like to call employment law alphabet soup… FLSA… EEOC… ADEA… USERRA… FMLA… OWBPA… FFCRA… GINA… ADA… MSPA… ACA… OSHA… FCRA . . .
