Your 2019 Employment Law Compliance Checklist


Today is the start of the first full week of 2019. Which means it's a perfect time to take a step back and review your efforts at HR and employment-law compliance for the coming year.

This list is not mean to be complete or exhaustive, but should provide a high level look at the top 20 issues that you should be reviewing this year, and every year for your business.

☑️ How many employees do you have (15 / 20 / 50)?

☑️ When is the last time your handbook has been reviewed and updated?

☑️ When was your last harassment / respectful workplace training?

☑️ Do you require restrictive covenants for key employees?

☑️ Do you have employees that work in states in which marijuana is legal?

☑️ Do you have federal contracts?

☑️ Are your employment law posters up to date?

☑️ Has your state or local minimum wage increased?

☑️ How are you calculating and paying overtime to non-exempt employees?

☑️ When did you last analyze your exempt employees?

☑️ Do you have independent contractors?

☑️ Is all of your workplace OSHA compliant?
