Business growth, changes in HR management or a desire to improve the HR processes may drive our clients to request a HR Practice assessment. We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of our client’s policies, practices and procedures. We approach the HR Practice Assessment from a regulatory compliance perspective, as well as a practical employee relations viewpoint. We candidly review the strengths and weaknesses of the employee relations program and provide constructive recommendations to make improvements. The specific topics to be covered are defined in discussion between the client and the consultant, accordingly to the organization needs. A standard HR Practice Assessment will, however, typically include a review of the following issues:

  • HR Policies and Handbooks
  • Compliance with notice posting and record keeping requirements
  • Recruitment and selection procedures
  • Equal Employment Opportunity compliance
  • Americans with Disabilities (ADA) compliance
  • New Hire Orientation/On-Boarding requirements
  • Immigration I-9 verification compliance
  • Benefits communication and administration process
  • Classification of Employment compliance
  • Pay practices, overtime, and time reporting compliance
  • Compensation policies and practices
  • Family Medical Leave and/or Parenting Leave compliance
  • Military Leave compliance
  • Performance management systems
  • Dispute resolution process
  • Two-way communication systems
  • Employee health, safety and security policies
  • Employee separation process
  • HR Process Improvement

Optimum HR Systems produces comprehensive written reports detailing each analyzed practice. Reports include specific improvement recommendations ranked by priority.
