You probably know a lot about the business you're in, but unless that business is employment law compliance, your organization could be at risk.
Have you ever assessed whether your company is in compliance with all of the many federal and state employment laws? Are you certain that your company is in compliance with the:
Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)?
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)?
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)?
Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA)?
COBRA and HIPAA?
Federal and state Civil Rights Acts?
On average, jury awards for discrimination claims against employers are $500,000 – $1,000,000, while help with compliance costs a mere fraction of that.
"You can always avoid paying for a service, but you can't avoid the performance of that service. And if you're not going to pay for the service, you'll have to do it yourself. The question to ask yourself is this:
Which course of action will get you the best result?"
