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
  • conduct system review of the HR management system.


Documentation Requirements:
  • HR Policy – typically a one page document declaring commitment to HR compliance
  • Policies for HR related requirements
  • HR Procedures – ideally they are brief instructions for employees to follow (eg grievance process)
  • HR Forms
  • HR Risk Register
  • HR Objectives & Targets Register
  • Training & Compliance Register
  • Problems Register
  • Corrective Action Register.
