Not keeping up with the latest laws and regulations impacting worker relations or updating your employee policies and documents.

However, what you may find of lesser importance now may come back to haunt you if you’re not prepared. We have seen too many unfortunate instances where negligence of human resource compliance instantly becomes a nightmare situation for businesses, its owner(s), and others who are involved.

While many businesses hold some form of contract(s) and/or policies in place – many don’t understand exactly what they contracted or are unaware that certain things are downright illegal to include. 

In addition, several businesses don’t understand why workplace policies are needed at all and have failed to have their HR documents reviewed or updated because of this.

Clearly written policies and contracts are necessary to remedy workplace conflict, as well as set straightforward expectations for employee behavior.

For a small business, a state of litigation can really throw off day-to-day operations and is extremely stressful – gathering requested documents, formulating responses, carrying out the directions in any compliance order can take time and resources.

Getting compliance right means a small business hopefully never has to deal with Fair Work – or if a claim against the business is ever made – the company can have confidence that it will be able to successfully defend the action.

What is an HR Compliance Audit?

An HR audit conducted is a key component to help companies like yours avoid legal and regulatory liability. Our HR audits at MCDA CCG not only consist of identifying areas of legal risk, but we also help you quickly resolve the findings.
