Why is HR Compliance Important?

Want to know more about HR compliance? You’ve scrolled to the right place!

HR compliance is the understanding that all businesses must comply with employment law, rules and regulations wherever they are based. To achieve this, HR needs to take a proactive approach to ensure that the business meets all of its legal obligations. 

Day to day this means being responsible for meeting health and safety requirements and ensuring that staff receive their contractual and statutory workplace entitlements. This can include the following recruitment policies, preventing and tackling workplace discrimination and ensuring staff are paid what they are owed.

Additionally, HR compliance requires staying on top of any employment law changes, including gender pay reporting and rules for employing foreign workers. Deciding how their business will meet these new compliance responsibilities is an ongoing task for HR.

HR compliance is important because failing to meet your legal obligations is unlawful and can lead to industrial disputes or tribunal claims. In some circumstances, such as allowing an employee to work during the first week after they have given birth, such failures can also become a criminal law matter.

There are heaps of compliance issues that can occur for small businesses, which is why we built Employment Hero. Our platform has regularly updated policies, templates and documents to make sure your business feels confident in HR compliance. 

Running a business is hard and it often feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that you want to, or should do to be right by your business. By the time you pay your bills, invoice customers, return calls, put the final touches on that big proposal and get the stock order out, the day is over. You haven’t even had time to look at policies and regulations.

If you think you may be at risk of making common HR mistakes, download our Essential Guide to HR Compliance and gain some peace of mind. It will help you cut through and get straight to the essentials so you don’t waste your precious time.
