A Human Resources audit is one of the most significant risk management tools your company can implement. There are hidden employment law traps for virtually every employer. Senior management often assumes that employment law practices are handled appropriately throughout the company – “because that’s what the handbook says” or “that’s industry standard” -- only to find out during an audit with its management team that those practices aren’t handled that way in a particular department, building, or business unit, or “industry standard” isn’t legal after all.
A single five-minute meal break violation in each pay period can turn into damages and penalties of as much as $14,000-$18,000 for each employee, past and present, going back for up to four years. Auditing break and pay practices is only one of the many critical aspects of the Human Resources audit. Documentation of offer letters, confidentiality agreements, arbitration agreements, policies, meal break waivers, policies and forms for handling leaves of absence and training are just some of the other issues.
In this talk, employment law attorney Jonathan Fraser Light will provide an overview of how on-site audits can be an eye opener for your management team and keep companies out of expensive and time-consuming litigation.
