Chicago Business Lawyers Handle Employee Relations Audits
Making sure that your small business is in compliance with all applicable
laws is a crucial foundation for success. Failing to do so can lead to
very serious implications for you and your company. Even then, you may
find that your business is not running as well as you would like. You
may observe that your employees do not appear to be completely content,
but it may be difficult to pinpoint why.
Even if you actively encourage employee suggestions and promote an open-door
policy, employees may still be reluctant to share their honest opinions
about the workplace with you. If you find your small business in this
situation, you may want to consider conducting a company culture audit.
As part of the audit, an experienced Chicago business attorney may include
the flexibility of:
- Workplace schedules
- Contentment with employee benefits
- Understanding of company policies
- Perceptions of specific members of management
- Any other areas of concern
Encouraging Honesty from Employees
When responses are kept anonymous, employees are generally willing to be
more transparent about their thoughts and feelings about the workplace.
They will not have to be afraid of any type of retaliation, especially
if you explain the purpose of the interviews.
After the interviews are completed, one of our skilled and friendly attorneys
would then draft a comprehensive report based on observations and conduct
a follow-up meeting. During the meeting, the attorney could help pinpoint
ways to more effectively respond to company concerns. To the extent that
the audit determines that major changes are advisable, our legal team
can help you implement those changes.
