Auditing Employee Hiring and Staffing
Each time an organization hires a new employee, it is exposed to several risks. Internal auditors should recognize the importance of ensuring that human resources (HR) departments are in compliance with the regulations that govern hiring and staffing. This handbook explains the risks and expenses involved in human resources so that auditors will be equipped to address problems and guide organizations. Included are appendices with useful information on key legislation, staffing records retention, and staffing-related websites.
Auditing Human Resources
Human resources management covers a broad spectrum of workforce activities. Despite its integral role, HR is often considered a “soft” area and management may not understand the inherent risks involved with this function, including employment law issues, compensation and benefit plan design, recordkeeping, and potential fraud issues. This second edition is an essential tool for internal auditors to examine the technical and practice dimensions of the HR function and to create a comprehensive system that adds value to the organization.
Auditing Compensation and Benefits Programs
Internal auditors are beginning to recognize that there are major organizational risks and costs associated with administering compensation and benefits programs, and are adjusting their efforts accordingly. Inappropriate management of salary and benefits costs, which often make up a large portion of the overall budget, can have a significant financial impact on an organization. This handbook can help those responsible for administering and auditing these programs ensure that their organizations are implementing best practices and addressing all appropriate risks.
