Understanding and remaining compliant with the many laws and regulations related to legal workplace practices can help you avoid unnecessary risks and expensive, time consuming litigation. But if you don’t have a full-time employment law expert on staff, staying on top of constantly changing local, state, and federal laws can be a tall order. The HR compliance experts at G&A can provide valuable employment law assistance—helping you to determine which HR regulations your company needs to follow.
Successfully Navigate Terminations & Unemployment Benefits
Letting an employee go is difﬁcult for all parties involved. It can be difficult on a personal level, and it requires tedious paperwork and the painstaking processes associated with unemployment insurance (UI) claims. We can’t help you avoid the emotions that accompany a termination, but we can help you navigate the process and potential risks associated with unemployment claims.
With continuous oversight and a rigorous attention to detail, the experts at G&A can manage and administer State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) beneﬁts. In addition, we can reconcile unemployment payroll taxes and process claims to help ensure your company doesn’t incur any unnecessary charges.
Develop Proactive Anti-Discrimination/Anti-Harassment Measures
Protecting your employees from discrimination and harassment and your company from related claims, starts with putting precautionary measures in place before an incident arises.
G&A can help you navigate the complexities of employment-related compliance and protect you and your employees by:
- Reviewing HR policies and procedures to uncover any problematic situations and practices.
- Crafting a clear anti-retaliation policy with speciﬁc examples of what management can and cannot do when disciplining or terminating employees.
- Providing training to management and employees on anti-retaliation and other discrimination policies.
- Implementing a user-friendly internal complaint procedure for employees.
Stay Compliant and Up-to-Date with Federal & Local Laws
Let's look at one federal agency for perspective. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) enforces more than 180 federal laws, which impact more than 10 million employers and 125 million workers. ADA, COBRA, EEO, FLSA, FMLA, HIPAA, OSHA, ACA – understanding it all, and how each affect your organization, can be incredibly confusing.
If the alphabet soup of federal, state and local statutes is overwhelming, our HR compliance professionals have a deep understanding of the nuances of applicable laws and regulations. We can help you decode it all, and keep you compliant, today and in the future.
