Neenah, WI - Prospera®, J. J. Keller's unique management tool that advises on the core areas of human resource compliance, has been enhanced to provide subscribers with robust employee recordkeeping functionality that includes complete and thorough electronic files for employee and medical files. This enhancement accommodates the growing number of companies that are attempting to go paperless with their records and provides them with an affordable solution for electronic recordkeeping.
Katherine Loehrke, human resources subject matter expert at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., said, "Many companies are now attempting to go paperless. In most cases, electronic recordkeeping isn't any more or less demanding than keeping records on paper. Many of the same rules that apply to records kept on paper will apply to records kept electronically. Whatever form of recordkeeping you choose must ensure that records are accessible, secure, authentic, and reliable. You should be able to locate and retrieve records promptly, and you should be able to reproduce records in hard copy."
The enhanced employee recordkeeping in Prospera provides subscribers with two distinct electronic files - a general personnel file and a medical file. The separate files comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which states that all medical information regarding an employee should be kept in a confidential medical file separate from the workers' general personnel file. The employee file centralizes all non-medical employee information including things such as discipline, performance, training, demographics, and more. The medical file centralizes all medical employee data including safety incidents, ADA accommodations, FMLA, and more. Over 15 new reports were added to the service to allow subscribers to manipulate the data they are maintaining within all of Prospera's interactive tools - including the Affirmative Action Plan (AAP), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), OSHA Form 300, and VETS-100 tools.
Rustin Keller, Director of Business Services at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., said, "Prospera is the perfect solution for companies that are in need of a cost effective solution for maintaining compliant employee records. Most companies are not prepared to make the huge capital investment required for an enterprise solution. Prospera provides a solution to produce EEO reports, AAP plans, OSHA Form 300, and related records and reporting required by regulations from the DOL and OSHA."
Prospera's complete selection of recordkeeping tools are partnered with valuable information and resources that make compliance easy and understandable - including over 400 topics, a comprehensive forms library, and access to J. J. Keller's Personal Assistant. Interested human resource professionals can visit www.prospera.com to sign up for a 30-day free, no obligation trial of Prospera®.
