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. 
 
  • All company policies and procedures must comply with federal and state labor laws related to employee leave, equal employment opportunity, sexual harassment, and worker safety.
     
  • Every employee should be provided with a handbook that explains the practices's policies and procedures related to standards of conduct, nondiscrimination, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment. (Be sure the employee signs a receipt acknowledging that he or she has reviewed the handbook.)
     
  • Labor law posters are required to be displayed under federal and state law are posted where employees can easily see them.
     
  • Make sure procedures are in place for maintaining employee records and files as required by law.
     
  • Employees should receive the necessary skills and regulatory training, including safety and sexual harassment.
     
  • Human resources policies and procedures apply equally to all employees, and should be applied fairly and consistently throughout the practice.
