5 Key Steps to Reduce Employment Liability
One of the most proactive strategies employers can implement to minimize employment liability risk is to centralize key areas of the HR function to provide consistency in the organization’s actions across departmental lines. We recommend that uniform processes be established to coordinate hiring, manage performance, address employees issues / disciplinary actions, handle leaves of absence, and to inform separation decisions.
These factors are important for employers to implement regardless of size or industry. All too often, our business becomes involved with serious issues that are a result of inconsistent practices and failure of managers to perceive the dangers in these key areas.
In view of this universal applicability, we decided to share these key steps to our readers as this month’s Bulletin attachment.
We recommend reviewing the dividing line between those employment actions, which must be centralized, and those to be implemented directly by managers.
