HR Consulting: How smaller clients benefit

Typically, smaller employers do not have the resources to have a professional human resources person on staff, such as an HR Director or an HR Manager. When smaller companies get into trouble, they will then call upon an employment attorney to “fix” whatever the issue is… and this can be quite costly. Retaining an HR Consultant to make sure they are in compliance initially will help smaller companies save dollars.
ECG helps even the smallest company comply with the myriad of employment laws. Getting helpful advice from an HR consultant can do wonders for your company. By learning and staying up-to-date with employment laws, obtaining comprehensive employee handbooks, and exercising best practices in the workplace, an HR consultant can make sure things are in order within your Company. The minute you have just one employee on your staff, there are laws that you are required to comply with. Despite the size of your company, by law, you should have a “harassment policy”, comply with wage and hour laws, Crime Victim’s Leave, employee safety, and IRCA (Immigration Reform and Control Act), just to name a few.
HR California provides a document, “Which Law Applies To You,” outlining which laws apply to your company based on the number of employees you have. Certain employment laws only apply to employers’ who have a particular set number of employees. For smaller employers, each time you increase your staff by one, there may be additional laws that affect you. Knowing which laws your company needs to abide by can help you stay compliant and free from litigation.
