Reducing Regulatory Burdens

unemployment

the additional $600 per weeks stipend added to the employees benefits is hurting our business. Why should someone come to work when they are making almost double what they make at work. In Washington, the min wage is $13.50. the worker can get in the range of $1000 per week on unemployment. I suggest that this be changed to a supplement given to the states to augment the benefits up to 90% of their indexed wages. That... more »

Take Care of All Americans and Businesses, Rich or Poor!

Too much like right is having 329 million people in a country like the United States of America but we can't get our politicians count us accurately, and count us in on when they trying to steal our tax money. They make two $2 trillion-dollar stimulus packages and somehow still fail to take care of 329 million people but if we were to receive $1000000 a piece that still wouldn't be over $329 million dollars so how do... more »

Privacy and liability concerns

As businesses reopen, there are concerns about legal issues arising out of exposure in the workplace, either by customers or employees. Although we have created policies that align with the CDC guidelines and the PA Department of Health guidelines, there is concern about employee medical data and communication to/from customers regarding exposure. What are the legal ramifications of 1) taking employee temperatures, and... more »

Unemployment Platform Development

Presently, the unemployment system is outdated. Once this pandemic event has subsided, the infrastructure, technology and overall process has to be evaluated at a state and national level. The bottlenecks, long hold periods and current staffing alignment have to be addressed. To hear that these systems are over 30 years old is troubling in this age of technology. We must give unemployment recipients and works a better... more »

Manager

Specific to a government DOE contractor - The work environment doesn't encourage flexibility relative to working at home, flexible hours, etc. (Good time to implement due to COVID-19.) DOE requires "red tape" that seems like a waste of taxpayer money and at the same time, contractors aren't expected to comply in an efficient manner. This is a good time for DOE to evaluate their requirements and reduce the amount of red... more »

Regulatory Sustainability

Regulations dictated by vested interest seeking n monetary gain from requiring a specific product, based on conjecture and speculation not grounded in geophysical, physical or organic science, should be properly vetted and eliminated before crippling micro and small businesses and "burdening" large businesses.

Lack of regulation, and anarchy are burdens to life as we know it and our future.

Regulations based on solid... more »

improve employment service instead of giving unemployment insurance.

State government can improve employment service to move layoff individuals under the risk category who want to work to less contagious probability industries like manufacturing to reduce public burden and keep labor market

Director of HR

During this pandemic (and maybe beyond) there should be a partnership with state Unemployment Agencies and employers. Employers that wish to should have the option to assist with the payment of claims in exchange for a reduced UI experience rating. Employers that opt in to manage payments could easily make direct payments to unemployed individuals deemed "eligible" by the state agency through our payrolls. Give us access... more »

Clarify ACA reporting during a pandemic

Guidance should be issued specifying that pandemic related leaves/furloughs should be treated like FMLA leaves and other special leave and not count against ACA tracking of FT status and affordability. Even better, there would be some temporary relief for ACA reporting for employers and mandates for 2020 due to Covid19-- like a special safe harbor recognizing that this year is an outlier in terms of hours worked/wages... more »

Fast-Tracking Certification

To speed employers' ability to hire workers and to enable locals to support their communities and families in this time of need, apprenticeships and other institutions that provide certification to students should have a separate track for gifted students who absorb the information rapidly and can demonstrate this through rigorous testing. The timetable to graduate from the apprenticeship would be reduced by a half or... more »
