As a business owner or human resource professional, how many of these employment related acronyms do you know? They are either an employment related law in either Wisconsin, Minnesota, or the United States, or an agency responsible for enforcing an employment related law in the same jurisdictions.
FFCRA, FLSA, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, EAP, GINA, NLRA, STD, LTD, WARN, WC, MN DEED, DOL, MMC, MDHR, IRS, EEOC, NLRB, OSHA, MN DLI, MN OSHA, WI DWD, WI LIRC, WFEA, MHRA, CRA, FCRA, USSERA.
If you guessed 28, all but ONE, you are correct. MMC Is the Metropolitan Mosquito Control! Other than MMC, all of the above are either employment related laws or the bodies that enforce those laws. This list is not exhaustive.
Employers and Human Resources professionals have a HARD job when it comes to knowing all of these laws and complying with their requirements. Even when employers read the laws, the laws do not say everything because you need to look at administrative and case law interpretation for further guidance on what the laws actually mean.
