Consider the following:
• Do your employees understand the law and your company policies? Communicate “what not to do” before there is a problem.
• Do you have Illinois-compliant HR policies? Don’t wait for the boss to ask – get your answers now.
• Want to stay in compliance, reduce risk, and save money? Educate yourself and your managers.
• Are you doing everything you can to protect your company from an employment claim? Get the information you need now to make legally sound decisions.
It may not be easy to promote a safe work environment, comply with laws governing paid and unpaid leaves of absence, identify, investigate, and resolve harassment behavior and complaints, but IT IS THE LAW! We can help you stay in compliance and hopefully avoid lawsuits, fines and much more.
