HR Compliance & Risk Management
Policies are important as they are an extension of the terms and conditions of employment that the employer has with an employee. Power HR can work with your organization to review or create an HR policy manual that is compliant with labour standards for your jurisdiction.
HR Policy Manual
When an employer fails to comply with labour standards, human rights legislation, or other employment regulations, this can result in financial penalties and the erosion of your brand in the market. Better to get your ducks in a row to ensure your HR policies are up-to-date with evolving employment legislation.
Clearly documented job descriptions lower risk as they communicate to employees what their role and responsibilities involve. This increases productivity and is a foundational element for performance management.
Employees need a process to have regular check-ins with their managers to discuss progress made towards their individual and organizational goals. This is a key lever of engagement, and having performance documentation when a termination results because of poor performance is essential.
When a termination meeting is led without any human resources involvement, this can be a huge exposure for an organization. The wrong things may be said or not done, and it can result in costly legal settlements. Better to plan out a respectful termination and have human resources lead the process.
Employee Training is fundamental to meeting your basic compliance requirements as a employer. In addition to health and safety training, all employers should conduct basic training in the below areas.
Harassment Prevention Training
Conducting regular training on what is considered harassment and discrimination in the workplace lowers an employer’s risk as they have performed their due diligence of what the Human Rights Act considers as prohibited grounds. In the event of a human rights complaint, it is better to have performed this training. Some provinces like New Brunswick require harassment prevention training be performed as a legislative requirement. We can design and deliver this training for you.
Diversity & Inclusion Training
Top employers take action to ensure that all minority groups are included and welcomed in the workplace. A best practice is to roll out diversity and inclusion training to all employees. Top talent want to work for an employer that encourages a diversity of ideas and people in the workplace. We can design and deliver training on how to create a more diverse, inclusive work environment.
