Protect your organization by ensuring HR compliance
Federal, state, and local employment laws are complex, often conflicting, and at times, counter-intuitive.
Violations, unintentional as they may be, lead to fines, lawsuits, bad publicity, loss of talent, employee dissatisfaction, and lost business. Mitigating those risks is a key measure of success for the Human Resources function and is critical to the success of the organization as a whole.

Identifying compliance issues and mitigating risk
An important role of Human Resources is to safeguard the company with policies and procedures that ensure legal compliance in HR with federal, state, and local guidelines. Clients often retain CCI Consulting to help them identify and address a variety of potential HR compliance issues before they result in problems.
Two of the most common HR compliance audit requests we receive are for Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) audits to ensure compliance with the U.S. Department of Labor’s wage and hour requirements and I-9 audits to ensure compliance with federal requirement to verify the identity and legal authorization to work of all paid employees in the United States.
When conducting an HR compliance audit, CCI Consulting reviews documentation and assesses current processes to identify potential gaps of areas of exposure. We then provide guidance to help the client prioritize and implement corrective action. With our support, clients demonstrate their commitment to legal compliance in HR and proactively reduce the potential risk and exposure from compliance related issues.
Third Party HR Investigations
At times, employers are faced with an internal employee complaint, an accusation, a serious rumor requiring attention, or alleged employee misconduct. These situations require an investigation to gather facts, interview parties, review documents, sort out the details, and then summarize findings to assist the employer. Organizations often utilize an independent third party to conduct the investigation because it shows they are concerned with providing fair and objective treatment for all employees.
CCI Consulting has the skills and experience to conduct sensitive internal investigations. We have been engaged by law firms on behalf of their clients as well as by clients directly to investigate issues of sexual harassment, retaliation, bullying, discrimination, and ethical violations.
Although we facilitate the investigation through a structured and consistent process, we recognize each investigation is unique. After completing the investigation, CCI Consulting will deliver a comprehensive report that summarizes the incident, establishes a conclusion based on the facts gathered during the investigation, and provides specific recommendations for resolution (where applicable) and to help protect the organization from future incidents of potential misconduct.
Compliance can be challenging, but non-compliance can be devastating.
