Employer’s Guardian identifies exposures to proactively minimize employer risk.
Small HR departments can be overwhelmed by the challenge of addressing employee-related liability. Legal newsletters can explain new regulatory requirements, but many small HR departments struggle to formulate strategies for effective implementation and long-term management. Poorly designed solutions can burden business operations unnecessarily and result in employer liability levels incrementally increasing year over year. Effective HR requires more than a half-dozen topic experts backed by systems being managed by professionals.
At Employer’s Guardian, we work as HR architects for our clients. We start by fully understanding your business processes and compliance risks, and design solutions to meet the needs of the entire organization, not just HR. Compliance solutions must be proactive and minimize the impact on daily operations. We create solutions that are both immediate and long term: we integrate reoccurring compliance audits to ensure that evolving business practices and compliance processes remain in alignment, and partner with your legal counsel on priorities and plans for improvement. HR departments lacking relevant expertise while utilizing systems not designed to proactively manage risk are bound to fail—you need an HR expert in your corner who can identify issues and provide comprehensive solutions.
Optimize day-to-day processes to increase efficiency and limit administrative errors.
Employers document their level of compliance through daily transactions. These historical records grow day after day, and are what an attorney will use to defend or attack an employer. More than half of employer liability is controlled by the decisions and documentation of managers. When employers task managers to follow time-consuming and substandard HR processes, adoptions and support experience increasing liability levels in most cases.
When HR processes have become an obstacle to daily operations and the historical document trail of compliance is troubling, it is time to consider other options. We have developed solutions that automate HR management processes and create efficiencies for the managers we support, which are supported by experts that make decision making and documenting compliance easy.
Minimize allegations of manager misconduct.
Managers are at the heart of most employer litigation. They give directions, critique performance, make scheduling decisions, and take other actions that can be interpreted as discriminatory or acts of retaliation, or which impact wage and hour compliance. HR departments that lack effective manager training and development programs put their employer at risk. When managers are not educated on how to effectively manage in a world filled with employee protections, risks of litigation can develop.
Employer’s Guardian meets manager training needs by customizing training courses to meet the needs of the employer. Training is managed through a cloud-based Learning Management System and includes group, one-on-one, and on-demand training content. Ensuring managers are educated helps them make better decisions and request support from our HR team before taking action. This approach is more efficient and profitable in the long run.
Get a team of HR professionals with diverse expertise working for you.
Small HR departments rarely have the depth of knowledge and experience required to manage the amazing diversity of regulatory requirements demanded of employers. It is common for employees working in these departments to work long hours trying to do what they believe is right. These reactionary environments, void of true expertise in managing complex legal requirements, are the root cause of substantial employment litigation.
Employer’s Guardian has experts in an array of HR disciplines that work for our clients. These experts take technically demanding work off your plate. We actively manage dozens of protected leaves of absence for our clients, collaborate on ADA accommodation cases, and prefer to draft all employee performance warnings and termination documents for our clients. We work closely with managers to help them successfully address business needs in a compliant manner.
