Preparing for holiday-related employment challenges

‘Tis the season to hire workers for the holiday and winter seasons. It is also time to prepare part-time and full-time workers for challenges unique to the holiday season. From an employment law standpoint, both employers and employees can benefit from understanding how this time of year uniquely impacts the workforce. By being prepared, both employers and employees can avoid legal headaches sure to put a damper on the joy of the season.

The influx of seasonal employees puts stress on HR departments

It can be hectic during the holidays. Most industries -- from retailers, to cell phone providers, to production factories -- will likely see a significant upturn in orders and customer traffic. In the coming months, retailers will be adding numerous employees to help with the increased holiday season consumer traffic. Whether it is a brick-and-mortar retail location, a delivery service or an Internet sales distribution center, it is likely that the organization will need additional workers. Most often, these employees are categorized as "temporary" or "seasonal."
