Conducting periodic reviews of your human resources compliance is the cornerstone of your company’s “good faith” defense in the event of future litigation. It’s also a fraction of what a lawsuit could cost you.
Our consultants will conduct a thorough assessment of your company’s HR policies and procedures to identify compliance gaps, then recommend meaningful action and best practices. This will also prepare you for an actual government audit and protect you in the event of litigation.
Our most popular HR audits & assessments include:
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Compliance Assessment
Managing Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) requirements can be confusing and complex for even the most seasoned professionals. We’ll help ensure your FMLA compliance while minimizing the law’s burden to your organization. We’ll create or review your FMLA policy, as well as review open and recent FMLA cases for compliance and assess your overall case management process. We’ll also train your HR staff, supervisors, and employees on their rights and responsibilities.
I-9 Compliance Assessment
Most employers average at least five errors per I-9 form. Our experts will help identify errors, omissions, and discrepancies in your forms, and suggest corrective actions. We’ll also help you implement industry best practices and create an I-9 policy or addendum to your hiring policy that ensures you have a documented and effective compliance process.
Wage & Hour Compliance Assessment
Each year, employers pay hundreds of millions of dollars in back wages for Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations. We’ll conduct an in-depth assessment of your wage and hour compliance by interviewing key stakeholders, reviewing job descriptions and employee classifications, auditing payroll and time-keeping records, and reviewing your existing policy or helping you develop a new one.
Staffing Agency Compliance Audit
The courts have ruled that your company is liable for employment law noncompliance on the part of your staffing agency. We’ll help you make sure your staffing agency is compliant, giving you valuable peace of mind. Our audit will take a close look at your staffing agency’s compliance with the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and contractual obligations to minimize your company’s liability.
