Prevention is better than cure. What organisation wouldn’t want to be confident, when the need arises, that its contracts, policies and HR practices are both legally compliant and state of the art?
Our HR Risk and Compliance Audit, which we offer for a fixed fee, examines the three key stages of the employment relationship:
- recruitment: Hiring procedures, offer letters and employment contracts, immigration requirements, restrictive covenants and contract forms (agency workers, temps and consultants)
- employment: Working time, employee benefits, discrimination and diversity, family friendly policies, holiday and sickness absence
- termination: Capability and performance management, disciplinary and grievance, redundancy procedures, and settlement agreements
We work closely with you to gather relevant information on your existing documents and practices, and then produce a practical, easy-to-follow Risk and Compliance Report which includes recommendations on improvements you might make either to comply with the law or to bring your organisation into line with best practice. Where desired, we can also work with you on implementation.
The HR Audit may be run alongside some of our other more in-depth Audit services such as Immigration and Sickness Absence as detailed below. The Audit can be run either on an annual basis or as a one-off health check.
