Employers and Regulatory Compliance


Making sure your business complies with federal and state acts can protect your company from legal problems. Even the most careful employer can fail to fulfill their legally required obligations to care for their employees simply because they do not understand the complex federal and state regulations.

Making sure your company meets the employment laws and regulations can protect your company from a possible lawsuit and ensure your employees receive the protections granted by law. For instance, COBRA and HIPPA require employers to follow certain guidelines when offering employees health insurance. Under the Employment Polygraph Protection Act, an employer cannot require an employee to submit to a lie detector test, even if the employee volunteers.

Complying with federal and state law is important. At Rowley Chapman & Barney, we can assist employers with implementing the proper policies to ensure regulatory compliance.
