On-line elaws’ advise businesses

DENVER — There is a new interactive Internet program called Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses.

With the click of a mouse, workers and small businesses can get expert advice on their rights and responsibilities under nine employment laws enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor.

The “elaws” have been designed to be particularly helpful to smaller businesses that do not have professional staff dedicated to following and understanding the latest regulatory developments of the Labor Department.

Care and coverage together for your employees

At Kaiser Permanente, we offer a unique care model. Not only do we provide care and coverage together (i.e. health plans and health care), but we also pioneered value-based care.

Each elaws system is a computer program that mimics the interaction an individual might have with a human expert. The elaws advisers, most of which will run interactively directly from the Internet, give advice and provide information on a specific law or regulation based on a worker’s or employer’s particular situation.

There are nine advisers available on its World Wide Web site. www.dol.gov/elaws:

1. Family and Medical Leave Act advisor;

2. Compliance guide for federal contractors and subcontractors;

3. Advisor on working safely with asbestos;

4. Fire safety adviser;

5. Adviser on working safely in confined spaces;

6. Adviser for complying with the cadmium standard;

7. Mine Safety and Health Administration’s Form 7000-2 adviser;

8. Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act adviser;

9. Veteran’s preference adviser.
