In the dynamic landscape of modern business, efficiency is not just a luxury; it's a necessity. Enter the workplace compliance toolkits. These easy-to-use documents act as guardian angels, keeping organizations abreast of ever-changing employment laws and regulations. By automating compliance checks and providing timely updates, they can also mitigate the risk of costly penalties and legal entanglements.

At fpSOLUTIONS, we know how to turn compliance challenges into solutions. Let's explore how our secret weapons (toolkits) can revolutionize the way organizations manage their most valuable asset—their human capital. Subscribers receive the comprehensive toolkit and on-going updates. Our most popular toolkits include:

  1. All-Inclusive Investigative Toolkit It is common for employers to receive complaints about harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or other workplace misconduct. Companies should take employee complaints seriously, and the role of the investigator is critical in this process. Investigators need to conduct a thorough and fair investigation and create a record which shows how the investigation was conducted, who was interviewed, what the investigator learned, and what next steps the investigator recommends. This toolkit provides templates, documents, workflow recommendations, and tips to help investigators plan and carry out investigations. The Toolkit includes guidance on conducting investigations, taking action following the investigation, and post-investigation considerations; an investigation checklist; acknowledgments; sample witness interview outlines and templates; investigation report template; and investigation conclusion documents.

  2. Reasonable Accommodation Toolkit (Federal) provides employers with a clear and consistent framework for the implementation of their reasonable accommodation policy. Its workflow process includes critical, step-by-step guidance, resources and the support needed to ensure a seamless process of accommodating requests without disrupting business operations. Also included in this toolkit are guidance on the interactive process and reasonable accommodation, tips and tricks for managing accommodation in the workplace, an accommodation flowchart and forms and communication templates of memos that help harness an efficient and comprehensive communication process. fpSOLUTIONS can help employers avoid costly mistakes to help set their company apart.

  3. Prevailing Wage Toolkit includes guidance on requirements and best practices, compliance checklists for IRA and Davis-Bacon, as well as apprenticeship requirements and more. When conducting wage and compensation assessments, companies are required to meet the prevailing wage rates, and this Wage Determination is a set of wages, fringe benefits, and work rules that the U.S. Department of Labor has ruled to be prevailing for a given labor category in a given locality .In this two-part toolkit, fpSOLUTIONS has covered employment situations that are nuanced and specific, and will apply to the following cases:

    • Determining the correct prevailing wage rates and compliance.
    • Complying with the Fringe Benefit obligations.
    • Complying with Apprenticeship requirements.
    • Determining whether the Davis-Bacon Act applies.
    • Determining whether the Service Contract Act applies.

  4. This toolkit(and its very nuanced and tailored checklists) has been designed to provide step-by-step guidance for mitigating any risk of not meeting those wage requirements in situations where the Davis-Bacon Act or the Service Contract Act may apply. fpSOLUTIONS’ Prevailing Wage Toolkit assists with determining whether the employment would fall under these provisions and what subsequent actions must be taken to comply with the obligations.

  5. Complete Tip Credit Toolkit (Federal) provides you with the documents needed to ensure (and demonstrate) compliance with the FLSA. The toolkit is suitable for any employer of tipped employees, regardless of workforce size. The Toolkit is right for you if you have tipped employees in any state where the FLSA controls the rules and requirements for paying tipped employees, and includes the following offerings:

    • An FLSA Tip Credit Notice
    • A “Side Work” Policy Acknowledgment
    • Tip Pooling Policies (one for a service charge workplace) (one for tipped employees)
    • A Training Presentation for managers on the 80/20 Rule
