Why Should You Attend:

If the idea of conducting audits of HR files seems daunting, then you won’t want to miss this session. In this practical webinar, you will learn about recordkeeping obligations imposed on employers by federal and state employment laws, glean best practices for conducting compliance audits, and consider strategies and tactics that will help your organization to stay ahead of compliance pitfalls.

With this information, you will gain confidence in your ability to plan and conduct internal audits of HR policies, procedures, and processes. As well, you will be armed with information that is actionable and that can keep your company from being cited, fined, or even shutdown due to non-compliance.

Any HR professional knows that a major part of their responsibility is keeping the company’s employment files organized – for many legal reasons – but also because it helps to keep your operations go smoothly. An externally-driven audit by a government agency could result in dire consequences including fines, citations, and shutdowns. Without a system or organizing files followed up by regular internal audits of policies, procedures, and documentation, any well-intentioned HR department is at risk for driving a wedge into ongoing operations of an entire company.

This course will give you a framework for auditing various areas of your HR department. Foundational topics include recordkeeping and employee-related retention systems; creating a practical and sensible plan for staying organized; and planning and conducting HR audits. We have added in special topics important for most employers: auditing Form I-9s and FMLA procedures and documents.

  • Assess and refine your records management policy and strategy
  • Describe and specify basic HR files and how to organize them
  • How to develop a plan for conducting regularly-scheduled audits of various HR files

Topic Background:

Just listen or skim the news on any platform and you’ll become familiar with the fallout that can come from discrimination in the workplace. More concerning, however, is that even if incidents happen outside the workplace, discrimination can affect an employer’s reputation and financial results.

When an employee makes a discrimination complaint involving specific allegations, an investigation may be required. Protecting your company includes not only conducting sound discrimination investigations, but conducting them well. Conducting discrimination investigations default mostly to HR professionals, and for good reason. With their specialized job training as well as their superior interpersonal skills, it’s a logical choice.

However, it may be surprising to learn that HR professionals often conduct workplace investigations without a specific methodology or without specific training. With that in mind, this course is designed to provide HR practitioners of all levels with a step-by-step process for conducting discrimination investigations in the work environment that is sound and thorough.

The course also includes specific topics that frequently come up as part of an investigation such as requests to not investigate, complaints against higher-level employees, the value of hearsay, and common errors in responding to employee complaints.
