TQCSI HR Compliance Code:2019
What is the HR Compliance Code? TQCSI’s Human Resources (HR) Compliance Code is a standard to which companies can develop a HR compliance management system and, with certification, demonstrate their compliance to fundamental HR requirements.
Complimenting a number of international standards, it embraces best practice requirements of all organisations for human resources and it is equally applicable to small companies and large organisations.
HR compliance is a fundamental legal requirement for all organisations.
HR Compliance System Requirements – a HR Compliance Management System requires organisations to:
- understand their HR related external & internal issues, and interested parties
- have a HR Policy describing senior management’s commitment
- understand their legislative requirements
- have policies and procedures to meet their legislative requirements
- assess potential HR compliance related risks
- develop and monitor HR objectives and targets
- ensure staff are competent and understand their HR requirements
- manage contractors’ and subcontractors’ HR obligations
- identify and resolve HR problems
- take corrective action for significant or repetitive HR problems
- conduct internal audits of the HR management system
