One of my employees is causing problems with all the other employees! What do I do?!
I have trouble finding the right people when hiring.
I know I should let this employee go, but I am afraid of repercussions…
Any of these sound like you? Having employees is critical to your business growth—as the owner, you can’t, and shouldn’t, be doing it all yourself! As anyone knows who has employees, it is a whole new set of issues—compliance, laws, regulations, and culture. Who do you call to get those questions answered? Most small to medium sized businesses don’t need a full time HR manager—and the budget for it. But when those issues arise, do you have to call a labor law attorney and pay those hourly fees? There is a better answer—you can outsource your HR duties!
This service can be DIY with guidance, help in certain areas, like employee handbooks and Policies & Procedures, all the way to hiring and managing those employees. By outsourcing your HR, you dictate what you need and when, only paying for those services you need. Some might be on a project basis, like the employee handbook updated (or created!) while other services like onboarding and hiring may be ongoing. The important thing is having competent, qualified advisors available when you need them. Many a compliance error can be mitigated before it’s even a problem with the correct protocol in place.
Everything needs to be in writing! Do you have an employee sick pay, vacation, or PTO policy? You need to communicate that with each employee. Lack of communication is one of the biggest areas of liability with employee issues. There are regulations and laws that change frequently, and all your Policies and Procedures need to be updated with those changes.
