HR Boring

Our belief is that HR is 80% gray and 20% black and white. We work with business owners to think through risk scenarios before they have to – making sure that they’re as prepared as they can be for the unexpected. We don’t preach – we educate each business from a position of respect, meeting them where they’re at – and providing them with one-time and ongoing HR support that allows them to focus on their business.

Without the right resources, mistakes are made that may cause financial harm and damage your reputation. Labor laws are many, the risks of violation not obvious and with many companies unknowingly stumbling into problems in these areas:

  • Hiring
  • Termination
  • Discipline
  • Absence Management
  • Promotion
  • Rewards & recognition

All of this is compounded by one or more protected classes and overlapping labor laws. For every labor law you violate, your penalties grow. Here’s a partial list of protected classes in Oregon, for example:

  • Race

  • Color

  • National Origin

  • Sex

  • Pregnancy related conditions

  • Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity

  • Association with a protected class

  • Genetic information

  • Veteran Status

  • Leave to Serve in Military

  • Leave for Spouse, Son, Daughter of Service Member called to Active Duty

  • Protected Leave for Serious Health Condition under Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA)

  • Oregon Sick Leave as it relates to OFLA

  • Injured workers

  • Marital Status

  • Opposition to Health or Safety Conditions

  • Victims of Domestic Violence

  • Use of Tobacco on or off premises

  • Family Relationships

Hire a Vantage Point Adviser and get the human resource management solutions your organization deserves!

Vantage Point listens to what we need in an employee so they fit the company culture. We feel they are an extension to our team and hold everyone’s best interest at heart. They understand how important it is to get the right employee the first time.

They make sure that we have a clear picture of the individual or position we need to fill and also to think outside the box when it comes to the skill sets needed for the job. Is this a position that needs the certification ahead of time or can we train the person to be the type of employee we need to fill the job. Sometimes it is a better fit if we can train so we don’t have to retrain bad habits.

Tom, in particular, has provided a wealth of information and has helped us think through all areas of hiring and HR scenarios. He has become a trusted friend and an invaluable resource.
