Human Resources play a key role in safeguarding a company’s compliance structure. Compliance of complex government requirements is confusing to those not familiar with these continuously changing laws and not following the rules could lead to legal troubles. It’s imperative that an organization understand and follow the proper documentation process to abide by acts and laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), OSHA, Sexual Harassment, discrimination laws, retaliation, age, workers’ compensation, and disability just to name a few.
Onboarding a new hire to your company is a critical part of compliance and is a crucial step for collecting all relevant accreditations from the employee. This imperative process ensures all HR information, such as an I-9, benefits, payroll, W-4, 1099, E-Verify, confidentiality agreements, background checks and drug tests are complete and correct.
Most important, Flex HR provides companies with a custom-built employee portal where each worker can find all their onboarding paperwork in one place; therefore, new hires immediately become engaged with company information at their fingertips. Additionally, they complete the proper paperwork pertaining to them, and even review the employee handbook, find the holiday schedule and get answers to questions that a new employee has a hard time asking.
Every new staff member wants that warm welcome their first day on the job, but it’s additionally important that the right job responsibilities and expectations be outlined from the start. Once these guidelines are recognized, the employee begins to get acclimated with the company culture and feel settled into their new position.
