We create Amazing Results
HR Audits are not only a vital means of avoiding legal and regulatory liability but also provide a company with information about the competitiveness of its HR strategies by looking at the best practices of other employers in its industry. HR Geckos’ audit program identifies areas that may be out of compliance with federal, state or local employment laws as well as providing insight into HR best practices.
HR AUDIT SERVICES
Our audit services cover the entire gamut of the Human Resources function. We primarily focus on I-9 and personnel file audits, compensation audits, employment practices audits, and employee handbook policy audits.
HR Geckos’ Comprehensive Audit Services can include virtual as well as on-site services.
The audit process may include the following steps:
- Ask questions pertaining to all written documents and review as necessary.
- Evaluate any files, forms and organization charts that are in place.
- Interviews with key management personnel to learn management philosophy and current HR practices.
- Prepare a written analysis of the HR function and identify requirements for meeting compliance, including identification of key action items with a timeline.
Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. An I-9 audit entails reviewing all completed I-9 forms, taking remedial action, and firming up the I-9 practices followed by your organization. On-site or virtual training can be provided to your administrative staff.
An equitable and competitive Compensation Program that can help motivate employees to achieve and maintain high performance and productivity levels is an essential ingredient of a successful organization. A compensation audit will include a review of your pay practices and compensation/classification structures (per FLSA guidelines).
Job postings must be legally compliant and posted salaries must be consistent across all channels. Applicant record-keeping guidelines can be quite tricky. If you are a federal contractor, OFCCP has several affirmative action guidelines that must be followed.
