Human Resource Audits

A human resource audit is a review of an employer’s systems and processes to determine if they meet current and projected HR needs and whether they provide sufficient protection from legal liability. The HR audit includes a review of the employer’s documents, policies, procedures and daily practices.

An individualized HR audit will help companies identify potential problem areas, improve performance, and ensure that the organization is in compliance with state and federal employment regulations.  A properly conducted HR audit will answer such questions as:

• What are the current formal and informal employment policies? Are they clearly written?
• Are the policies applied consistently?
• Is the employer in compliance with employment documentation required by law?

Employers are recognizing the liabilities and obligations resulting from the enormous growth and expansion of employment litigation. Failure to recognize potential causes of action for wrongful discharge, employment discrimination or failure to comply with the increasing number of federal and state employment regulations can produce disastrous results.

A comprehensive HR audit is designed to aid employers in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of their personnel policies and procedures and help identify and eliminate problem areas. The audit also helps employers make necessary changes in current practices and procedures to comply with applicable employment laws.
