Assignment 1: LASA 2 – Compliance Policies

You are going to develop a compliance policy covering the FMLA, ERISA and employee’s right to privacy for the Beta Technology compliance policy manual. Use the Argosy University online library resources and US government Web sites to research the FMLA, ERISA and employee privacy and locate the text of the applicable provisions.

Write the compliance manual sections, including the following:

  1. FMLA
  • Summarize the main legal requirements related to the FMLA in no more than one page.
  • Provide guidelines for employees to follow for requesting leave, including notice requirements, certification, benefits, and returning to work.

ERISA

  • Summarize the main points of ERISA in no more than a page.
  • Explain the important amendments, including the following, in a paragraph each:
    • Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)
    • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
    • Newborns’ and Mothers’ Health Protection Act
    • The Mental Health Parity Act
    • The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act
  • Explain consequences of violations.
  • Discuss the implications of the law for employee privacy.

Note:  The discussion of privacy under ERISA is separate from other privacy issues covered in Part 3.

  1. Employee Privacy
  • Explain Beta’s policy for privacy related to employee records,  work areas and equipment, electronic monitoring and off-work activities.
  • Use statutes, regulations, case law, and examples to explain the legal provisions.
