For more than 30 years, Sage has been a leader in the development of Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) software. Thousands of midsized businesses nationwide have implemented our popular Sage HRMS solutions. From those experiences, we’ve learned that compliance is one of the top challenges facing any human resources department. It can be difficult to stay on top of all of the state and federal workforce laws, regulations, and reporting requirements.
It’s up to HR to ensure that hiring, discipline, and termination practices are compliant with the law. Otherwise, you could put your company at risk of incurring fines, penalties, and employee lawsuits. And mistakes can be costly. More than one-third of private companies surveyed by Chubb Insurance had experienced an employment-law event (EEOC charge filed or employee lawsuit), at an average cost of $74,400 per incident.
Sage created this guide to help you stay informed about the latest workforce compliance laws and regulations that may affect your organization. Staying abreast of current mandates enables you to communicate with and train management and employees so that the company is not at risk of expensive employee lawsuits. As with all issues with legal circumstances, the use of this material is not a substitute for the advice of a lawyer and when in doubt or for advice with respect to any specific human resources mandate please contact your lawyer. Additionally, this material is provided for informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice.
