Question Title

* 7. ATTENTION NAHCC MEMBERS: The Tennessee Lawful Employment Act (TLEA) took effect January 1, 2012, and requires employers to obtain lawful resident/employment verification information. The amendment is Public Chapter No. 436 and can be viewed at http://www.tn.gov/sos/acts/107/pub/pc0436.pdf

Signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam on June 7, 2011, the TLEA requires all employers in Tennessee to demonstrate that they are hiring and maintaining a legal workforce either by:

Enrolling and verifying the employment eligibility of all newly hired employees through the E-Verify program, or Requesting all newly hired employees and “non-employees” to provide one from a list of identity and employment authorization documents.

Are you familiar with TLEA and E-Verify? To better serve your needs as a members business the NAHCC would like your input to offer a FREE overview session on TLEA and E-Verify including the newly expanded Spanish-Language Version of E-Verify Self Check launched by the USCIS.

Question Title

* 8. ATTENTION NAHCC MEMBERS: Recent incidents involving a leading national retailer and a local school Pension Plan have demonstrated the devastating consequences of a breach in customer’s or employee’s private data. It is one of the most exposed areas for virtually all businesses in today’s internet and electronic-data-storage driven world.

Some key observations/concerns:

· Small businesses are just as exposed as larger firms since most exposures originate outside of their controlled areas (payment processing companies, HR and IT service providers, etc.).
· In TN, the party collecting the info at the 1st point of contact is primarily liable for notification and reparation, even if the breach occurred with the 3rd party.
· What can paralyze or devastate a businesses is:
1. the costs associated with a breach (legally mandated notification of all affected customers, fines, credit monitoring for affected 3rd parties, loss of revenue for the business).
2. the time consuming steps that must be taken by law.

Are you familiar with Cyber and Privacy Data protection, and the minimum standards imposed by the law?

To better serve your needs as a members business the NAHCC would like your input to offer a FREE overview session on this topic.
