HR Compliance Audit

NERA Inspection - Are you Ready?

Due to the establishment of the National Employment Rights Agency (NERA), the need for companies to be compliant with all employment legislation is far greater than before. The number of NERA inspectors has tripled and employment legislation has become ever more complex.

You may have an upcoming NERA inspection or want to complete a HR audit now to establish how compliant you are with employment legislation.

HR Compliance

Our HR Compliance service includes:

  • Updating or implementing new contracts of employment for all your employees

  • Updating or creating a new employee handbook of HR policies and procedures

  • Ensuring all employees files contain information required for employment law compliance and to pass a NERA inspection

  • Ensuring payroll records are accurate and compliant with employment legislation, employment regulation orders (ERO's) and Registered Employment Agreements (REA's)

  • Ensuring your operations comply with all aspects of the Organisation of Working Time Act

HR Audit

Our HR Audit service consists of:

  • A mock NERA inspection - similar to a real NERA inspetion

  • A review of the Contract of Employment

  • A detailed review of HR administration (e.g. the recording and monitoring of working time, breaks, annual leave, new starters, leavers, employment / work permits, etc)

  • A detailed review of personnel files

  • A detailed review of the hiring and new starter process

  • An analysis of the Human Resources processes and operating procedures

  • An analysis of the company’s discipline and grievance processes

  • An analysis of the company's HR and employment related policies and procedures

  • An analysis of the company's processes related to equality and fair treatment

Upon completion of this audit, you will be furnished with a comprehensive report on your NERA compliance, employment law compliance and HR best-practice. This report will contain an audit compliance scoring spreadsheet and recommendations on what areas the company needs to target to improve your compliance.

HR Audit - Post Audit

After the HR Audit, we will assist by:

  • Updating personnel files and ensuring file completion

  • Completing contracts of employment / terms and conditions for all employees

  • Updating / developing policies and procedures as required by law

  • Ensuring legislation such as the Organisation of Working Time Act is fully complied with and records are properly maintained

  • Putting in place measures and systems to ensure your company is fully compliant with all employment legislation

Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) protect employees in the event of their work transferring elsewhere

However, there is nothing in the Protection of Employees on Transfer of Undertaking Regulations that prohibits dismissals if the employer can show justification for such dismissals for economic, technical or organisational reasons involving changes in the work-force.


Best-practice absence management policies, procedures and practices drive down absenteeism
