HR Audit Checklist - The Hiring Process

HR Audit Checklist - The Hiring Process

7/20/2017 6:23:08 AM   |   Comments: 0   |   Views: 144
You can begin your audit with a deep look into your practice's hiring process. After all, this is the first interaction that employees will have with your practice, and when it runs smoothly, it sets the foundation for the rest of their time there. You also need to make sure that you are not using any potentially discriminatory practices in the hiring process.

Begin by gathering the documents that your company uses in the hiring process and make sure the documents comply with state and federal law:

  • Sample job descriptions for positions within the practice
  • The job application that your practice uses
     
  • Any reference/drug testing/background check policy your practice uses
     
  • The internal job posting policy
     
  • A sample rejection letter and new hire on-boarding file

You can use these sample questions to understand what, if any, weak spots exist in your current policies and ensure that you are exercising the best possible practices going forward:

 
  • Are your job descriptions clear and concise, with essential and nonessential duties outlined?
     
  • Are rejected applicants notified in a timely manner?
     
  • Do all drug and background checks comply with state and federal law?
     
  • Is tax documentation consistent with federal and state regulations?
