HR Compliance 101

presented by

Damona Barnes, SHRM-SCP, SPHR

Let’s talk compliance! Join this event especially if you are an emerging HR professional in your first HR role, or an HR Department of One.

We will discuss:
- When you start a new HR position, where do you start to get an idea if the company is in compliance and what types of things you should look out for
- How to assess severity of compliance issues and prioritize what to address first
- Compliance basics such as what needs to be in employee files, I-9s, other legal or state specific documentation
- Detailed documentation in regards to employee performance, behavior, harassment and complaints
- The importance of communication with employees and managers in regards to compliant processes
