HR Audits: What to Watch for and How to Fix Problems Before They Spark Lawsuits and Costly Legal Liability under State and Federal Law - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to conduct a thorough HR audit of your employment policies and practices so you can make adjustments as necessary to minimize the risk of costly fines and lawsuits.



There’s an old saying in sports: “The best defense is a good offense.” The same holds true when it comes to policing your organization’s HR practices. The more you can be aware of any potential landmines lurking in your own practices, the faster you can fix potential infractions and avoid catching the attention of the Department of Labor (DOL), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, or another federal—or state-agency.

And, the best way to stay ahead of potential problems is to get a lay of the organizational land by conducting an HR audit proactively, before an investigation or employee lawsuit triggers an inquiry. But, how exactly do you do that? Where do you begin? What are you looking for? And what happens if you do indeed discover problems?

Use this on-demand webinar when Attorney Todd Ewan of Fisher Phillips LLP will walk you through how to conduct an HR audit to uncover and correct errors that could leave your organization vulnerable to costly fines or lawsuits.

You’ll learn:  

  • How to structure your HR audit, and tips on how to break it down into manageable chunks
  • Why conducting an HR self-audit is always a smart maintenance move 
  • What your audit should cover—from recordkeeping and training to leave procedures and more
  • What documents you should be looking for—and what to do if you don’t find them
  • The differences between what federal and state regulators will look for, and how to adjust your audit appropriately to make sure you’re covering all your necessary bases
  • What to look for in the employee handbook and what to update
  • How to approach the functional part of your audit, including wage and hour classifications, safety policy updates, and more
  • A checklist of red flags to watch out for 
  • How to make sure your electronic filing practices are up to date
  • Why training employees in HR compliance is essential—and pointers on how to ensure that managers know the proper steps when it comes to HR procedures
  • How to ensure that your HR forms and recordkeeping practices are up-to-date and compliant
