Important employment and workplace considerations to accomplish for the month of April.
Re-bid your benefits contracts
Employers should make it a habit to regularly evaluate the benefits market and their current benefits offering. Simply renewing your contract each year could result in overspending and benefits that don’t align with your current workforce. Before your next open enrollment, get feedback from your team and compare your current plan to other options out on the market.
Review pay equity compliance
With the EEOC’s continued focus on equal pay, we recommend taking the time to review your current compensation plan to see how well you are aligned with pay equity laws. Assess your current salary data and make adjustments where needed to stay compliant and competitive.
Take your daughters and sons to work day

H-1B filing season begins April 1st
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting H-1B work status petitions for the next fiscal year. USCIS usually accepts these applications for five business days. If you are an employer who plans on hiring people who need H-1B visas you should already be beginning this process.
