Business-Oriented Human Resources Audits Are Both Preventive And Proactive

John Fischer, Labor & Employment Law, Developing Labor Law Text Book

The most successful companies foresee, plan for, and take advantage of business opportunities before their competition. They also identify and make sure that they are well-prepared to avoid, or manage successfully, potential future problems, including legal problems, which could sabotage their taking full advantage of current or future business opportunities.

Strauss Troy’s approach to conducting a human resources/workplace compliance audit is designed to meet the individual needs of such forward-looking companies. We audit according to two related objectives:

  1. Preventive
    With the seemingly ever-growing, and changing, list of labor and employment laws and rules, a preventive audit determines a company’s level of compliance. If necessary, the Strauss Troy legal team will work with your company to fix any areas of noncompliance in a way that does not interfere with your company’s lawful business objectives. At Strauss Troy, we have a responsibility to help you avoid expensive, and distracting, employment claims and lawsuits. And, our auditing approach is designed to meet this responsibility, while accommodating your company’s particular circumstances. We strive always to account for your company’s overall business needs, recognizing that each company’s operational, financial, and employment challenges are often different.
  2. Proactive
    The second objective is to be proactive with audits. We audit to identify and implement the personnel policies and practices that will equip your company with the legal and human resources tools needed to avoid, or manage successfully, future employment matters. Our team also looks for and recommends eliminating any unnecessary personnel policies or practices that may impede the company’s operations now or in the future.

Before starting the audit process, you may simply need help setting priorities, and developing a schedule, to complete the audit over time. Strauss Troy can help you prioritize your action items.
