YDOP engaged the services of Craig Porterfield to help our fast growing company address the growing list of needs and concerns related to human resource management. Craig was a big help to my upcoming leaders. As with all companies, there comes a time when difficult conversations are necessary between managing staff and employees. Craig was not only a master at having these conversations, but also in coaching my leadership team on how to have them. His approach brings both compassion and toughness, based on his years of dealing with real situations in the workforce. His knowledge of employment law and his experience in human resource management makes him a valuable resource for companies who can’t afford a full-time HR position, but need these important issues addressed.

Be Prepared With an Internal HR Audit

When you hear of a government audit, you typically think of the IRS reviewing your finances. Did you know, though, that the government also audits companies like yours for human resource compliance?

Government HR audits can include reviewing your compliance regarding:

  • Exempt vs. nonexempt classification of your employees
  • Independent contractors
  • Wage and hour law
  • Selection and hiring processes
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Employment law postings
  • I-9s and employee files

All it takes is one phone call from one employee who feels that they have been treated unfairly, and a government investigator could be paying your company a visit. Just as with a financial audit, if that investigator discovers your organization is out of compliance (with a labor law or regulation), you could be subject to stiff fines and penalties.

Paraclete Partners offers a comprehensive audit of your employee files and human resource practices as a way to reduce your exposure should you be subject to an audit. For more information, call us at 717-916-2844 or email us.
