PRIORITIZE THESE TOP FOUR HR AUDIT LIST ITEMS
We are deviating from the usual hypothetical situation here, in recognition of spring cleaning season, to focus on four of my top HR audit list items, and why I would encourage every employer to make them a priority:
1. Review Your Employee Handbook
Many of the local and state laws creating new leaves of absence and protected classifications also require employers to notify employees of their legally protected rights. Employee handbook policies may satisfy these notice obligations and, even where that is not the case, the policies may need to be updated for consistency with current legal requirements.
