HR Audit: How to Conduct an HR Audit for HR Professionals
28 September 2021 |10:00 am - 1:00 pm BST159
Are you confident that your employment, benefits, leaves, and I-9 files are in full compliance with state and federal compliance requirements? If you are pausing to answer this question or if it elicits feelings of dread, join us for an information-packed session that will reduce your risk for being assessed costly fines and being cited for potential violations. In this session, you will learn an organized way to assess your company’s needs for auditing HR files and staying ahead of ever-changing regulations. Special topics include organizing your HR recordkeeping system, auditing FMLA documents and procedures, and auditing I-9 forms and procedures.
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.
