Your company’s ability to effectively comply with federal and state employment laws and regulations depends on a number of factors such as employee training; current, clear and comprehensive employment policies and procedures; and your decision-makers’ understanding of, and ability to navigate within, the applicable legal and regulatory landscape. Falling short on any one of these factors can expose your company to significant legal liability. One of the best ways to ensure ongoing HR compliance is to periodically conduct an HR audit.

Please join Melissa Fleischer, attorney at law, as she shows you step-by-step how to conduct an HR audit that will not only leave you with a better understanding of the applicable laws and regulations, but also provide a practical plan for ensuring the various federal and state legal requirements are addressed in your HR policies, forms and other documentation, and followed by management on a day-to-day basis.


Just a sampling of the many practical HR audit tips you’ll take away:

  • How to develop a comprehensive HR audit blueprint that identifies those areas that will likely require special attention, including HR administration, wage and hour issues, process for handling claims of discrimination, etc.
  • How to identify “red flags” which can be early warning signs that your current practices and procedures are putting you at risk.
  • How to evaluate a variety of factors that can impact the scope of your audit, including the size of your company, number of locations, your industry, etc.
  • How to develop a list of corrective actions based on your audit results, and learn how to prioritize your actions.
