HR Audits in California: What to Watch for & How to Fix Problems Before They Spark Lawsuits & Costly Legal Liability under State & 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 under California and federal law.



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 Marc Jacuzzi of Simpson, Garrity, Innes & Jacuzzi PC will walk through the ins and outs of proactively conducting an HR audit in California so you can better navigate the state’s complex and ever-changing labor law system and stay out ahead of potential problems before a labor investigation or employee lawsuit triggers an inquiry.

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 – and how that’s different in California than in any other state
  • 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
  • Reviewing your employee handbooks – what to look for, and what to update
  • How to approach the functional part of your audit – wage and hour classifications, updating safety policies, and more
  • How to break down your audit into bite-sized chunks
  • A checklist of red flags you should be seeking so you can spot compliance trouble spots under California and federal law and correct errors before they turn into costly fines and penalties
  • How to work with your HR team to conduct a successful audit
  • When to engage inside or outside counsel and why
  • Not just paper – 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 
  • And much more!
