HR Compliance 101 – for Non HR Managers



Why is HR compliance an absolute must for organizations? One can think of at least three core perspectives when answering this question:

Business: Seen from a business perspective, managers that are trained in the basics of HR compliance carry a proper understanding of the areas related to HR and business, such as employment law, the ways of writing documentation and of how to use the tools of employee development. When one considers the astronomical amounts that noncompliance with HR laws attracts, training non-HR managers can be the least expensive exercise for an employer to offset any unwarranted employment claims.

Managerial: Being compliant with HR practices and law is extremely important from a manager’s perspective. Why? Because being compliant with HR practices is necessary to ensure that the organization increases productivity, stays legally compliant, ensures employee development and engagement, and also safeguards the manager’s own career.

Human Resources: HR training for managers is also important from an HR perspective itself. It is only through proper and professional HR compliance training that can help managers understand how to protect the organization against many unwarranted employment claims, the cause of most of which is miscommunication, misinformation, and mismanagement.

The cost of lack of training can be very high for organizations

What happens when an organization fails to train managers about HR compliance? It can be disastrous for the experienced and new manager alike, especially when they have assumed charge of a dysfunctional department and/or are promoted to supervise those with whom they once co-worked. Sometimes, a simple exercise such as not following the right procedures while sanctioning leave can invite legal action against the employer. This is just one instance in which HR compliance training is vital. The organization can face innumerable such occasions that could potentially land them in a legal spot of bother

At this session, the expert will cover the following areas:

  • Basics of the Big Four of employment compliance- Title VII, FLSA, FMLA, ADA
