The human resources department is an indispensable part of any business. But underachieving HR can inflate costs, limit your growth potential, and may also jeopardize company stability. Employers regularly make major compromises with their HR Departments by hiring multiple topic experts incurring substantially higher costs per employee than competitors or accepting risks that come with a “Jack of All Trades” approach to HR. Both are compromises and unnecessary.

How Do We Support Your Business Through Our Partnership?
It is all too common for HR to address compliance needs without addressing business operational priorities. When business needs are not a priority in the problem resolution design, solutions are commonly less effective and support by operations can be marginalized. This compromise increases risks, increases costs, and can give competition an operational advantage. As your company grows, HR responsibilities grow. You need an HR partner that can accommodate the growth that you know your company can achieve, and protect you against legal liability and other risk exposures. You can achieve a better, more comprehensive HR solution with Employer’s Guardian.
There are countless employment lawyers who are all-too-ready to encourage disgruntled employees and rejected hirees to file suit at the faintest whiff of discriminatory hiring and employment practices. These lawyers recognize that hitting you with a demand letter threatening to file suit will likely result in you settling, rather than taking the risk of going to court.
We recognize that employers try to adhere to hiring and employment laws. But even minor mistakes in judgment can open them up to legal liability. Having access to the comprehensive HR support of Employer’s Guardian is a key means of enabling your company to button up previously unrecognized gaps in hiring, employment, and termination policy, practice, and documentation. Employer’s Guardian helps clients create a historical record of compliance that clients use to reduce the frequency and severity of employment litigation.
Every business has someone that is expected to control the Company’s employment risks. Many times HR policies and practices have not kept up with evolving compliance demands exposing the Company to the equivalent of “litigation landmines” that can detonate with little notice. Litigation can take a year or more to resolve, consume massive amounts of operating capital, and negatively impact careers.

But we don’t stop there—we can work with you to fix any issues and develop a long-term compliance plan so that your HR team continues to meet the demands of your growing company.
