Compliance Tip " H/R Policy Manual

 H/R Compliance is mandated by federal and state laws which do far more than govern human resources policies. These laws protect the rights of employees and define employers™ obligations.

Because of this, we suggest that you maintain a regularly updated H/R Policy manual for your organization.  Since managers have the most significant day to day interaction with your workforce members, make sure they have a good understanding of the policies and procedures in your H/R manual.  Train them so that they understand their responsibilities to uphold the standards and act as role models for other employees.  Your compliance website contains a course that can be used as an H/R Manual in addition to providing annual training on your H/R policies.

H/R Course information:

  • Your online H/R course is an example of an H/R Policy Manual. It is accessible year round by all users on your compliance website and is customizable to fit your H/R compliance needs.
  • The H/R Course contains basic information which is meant to be built upon to reflect your in house policies that support federal and state regulations.
  • Depending on your planned use for this training, you can provide generic or very specific information.
  • Keep in mind that you can hyperlink to existing documents and forms if you™d like your staff to have access to these documents while taking the course.
  • This course (like all courses on the website) is printable so you can maintain a record of your policies for any given time frame.


  • When developing the training, ensure that you™ve included all of your H/R policies and procedures within the course.
  • Review the content of this course at least annually to make certain up to date information is being documented and shared with your staff members.
  • You must provide updates to the manual and provide periodic retraining on important issues. We recommend that you have everyone train on your H/R policies annually using your online H/R Course.
