New Rules for Overtime Wages

New U.S. Department of Labor rules on overtime wages are effective as of December 1, 2016. The Charter Center hosted a webinar that examines these changes, notably that the threshold salary for an employee that meets one of the exemption categories has risen to $47,476 annually. We recommend that all schools familiarize themselves with the new rules and understand what changes, if any, need to be made at their school.

Staff Handbook

Clear expectations promote strong performances. A comprehensive staff handbook is the best way to ensure all employees understand the professional standards and culture of the school.

Several extensive handbooks are attached, each with particular strengths. SBuffalo’s CS Handbook has thorough sections on social media and computer use and mentions confidentiality of student records. Hebrew CS Center includes well-developed sections on media relations, social media and conflicts of interest, while Excelsior CS is thorough on employment rules and expectations.

Employee File Checklist Template

The employee file, or personnel file, contains a detailed record of every employment action and protocol. Employment files require precise measures and upkeep to ensure the files are accurate, complete and up-to-date. An Employee File Checklist is a simple tool to aid your HR team in the maintenance and inclusion of all relevant materials.
