"Must Do" HR Compliance Checklist Series:  Part 3
BENEFITS

It is important to conduct a regular review of your HR (human resources) procedures to ensure compliance with the law and prevent employee lawsuits. The checklist below features key steps for evaluating your management practices.
  • Employee benefit plans must (medical and retirement) comply with all requirements under federal and state law, including new Health Care Reform notices and other requirements for group health plans.
     
  • Review all plan documents, including enrollment forms and employee communications, to ensure they are accurate, consistent, and in compliance with state and federal law. 
     
  • Summary plan descriptions (SPDs) and other benefit plan notices should be distributed to employees as required under federal and state law.
     
  • All reporting and filing requirements related to medical and retirement benefits must be satisfied.
     
  • Ensure that employees are provided required notices regarding continuation of health coverage under COBRA or state "mini-COBRA" laws (if your company is subject to those requirements), and all obligations with respect to continuation coverage.
     
  • Review policies and procedures relating to paid vacation, holiday and sick leave (including compliance with FMLA or similar state laws that may apply to your company) on a regular basis.
     
  • Information regarding benefits should be clearly communicated to employees, and policies and procedures related to benefits must be applied fairly and consistently.
