HR Compliance vs. HR Best Practices
Compliance with Employment Law is required: HR best practices are not. Employment and labor laws include both federal and state laws. Federal laws are overseen by the U.S. Department of Labor and apply to all organizations whereas each state has their own set of laws that companies are required to abide by. Best practices, although not required, are helpful methods and techniques that bring quality results to the workplace.
Avoid Promotion Discrimination
Promotion discrimination against any protected category in the workplace is against the law; eliminate liability by using HR best practices. Protected categories include race, religion, color, sexual orientation, medical conditions, etc. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against qualified employees when a promotion or hiring opportunity is available.
Keep Employees Safe from Summer Heat
California’s heat illness standards require employers to take precise steps to protect outdoor workers from heat illness. As summertime rolls in and temperatures increase, California’s outdoor employees place themselves at a greater risk for heat illnesses.
