Regulatory Compliance for HR
Ensuring that your company complies with the myriad of federal, state and local laws
How Can We Help You?
HR Regulatory Compliance
Whether you have an in-house human resources department or have reached out to third party entities such as ours, we are all required to follow the law. Understanding and above all conducting ourselves in a manner that complies with all employment, health, and safety legislation is crucial. There are a myriad of federal, state, and local laws that cover the numerous areas of HR, such as recruitment, labor relations, benefits, and termination. When your company operates with the full knowledge of these laws, it ensures that you will be in compliance and avoid potentially damaging fines.
From the moment you pick up a candidate’s resume to the moment an employee is terminated, a number of federal laws are in place covered by human resources regulatory compliance. These regulations affect both employees and employers and are administered by the United States Department of Labor.
- Hours Worked
- Health and Safety
- Workers’ Compensation
- Employee Rights
- Record Keeping
State and Local Regulations
In addition to complying with federal regulations, there are also a number of state laws that govern many facets of working individuals. Some of them are the same as the federal requirements, such as safety and worker’s compensation. However, when you get down to the local level, smaller municipalities may have their own regulations related to employment and benefits. It is important to be knowledgeable of these regulations and take appropriate actions.
Globalization and HR Regulations
We are now in a global economy. Large and small businesses are frequently doing business with foreign countries or operating within their borders. When working with international compliance, many challenges can arise due to the differences in business practices and overall management of employees. Additionally, when U.S. employees travel overseas for international business, certain visas may need to be attained, for example.
