Employers of all sizes and industries, operating anywhere in the U.S., need to conduct HR Audits regularly. In 2021 and beyond, it is critical to carefully evaluate all aspects of how to properly and lawfully administer and manage personnel issues. Workplace laws, rules and regulations are constantly changing – what was lawful yesterday may be unlawful tomorrow. Annual HR Audits conducted by those with intimate knowledge and understanding of the latest legal developments, including enforcement, must be part of any employer’s regular processes.

SmithAmundsen LLC’s Labor & Employment Law Practice Group, comprised of attorneys concentrating in Employment, Traditional Labor, Immigration, Benefits/ERISA, OSHA, Workers Compensation and other key areas of focus, encourages HR Managers, Executives, Business Owners, CFO’s, In-House Counsel, and any other manager involved in personnel matters to review and give thought to our latest HR Audit Checklist.

Conducting an HR Audit for 2019

When was the last time you conducted an HR audit for your organization?

We’re all busy and get distracted easily. Often times HR considers a thorough review of the Employee Handbook is enough to ensure all is well from a legal compliance perspective as to personnel policies and practices. Not quite. A closer examination of an employer’s forms, contracts, procedures, practices and actual day-to-day management is essential. In other words, a deeper dive into an organization’s HR-universe is necessary these days. In a world of increased workplace regulation and litigation risks, a more thorough review and audit is required.
