We hope that each of you enjoyed your Labor Day holiday.  Now that school is back in full swing and the summer has come to an end, it is time to focus on the short period between now and year end.  Most employers have a busy HR schedule as we move towards the end of the year.  Now is a good time to step back and consider any of your employment practices goals before that busy rush to year end begins.  Take this opportunity to look over your HR policies and practices and ensure your handbooks are up to date.  If you haven’t trained your employees on your anti-harassment policies in sometime, now is a good time to get that on the calendar and completed.  If you dig a little deeper, it probably wouldn’t hurt to do some I-9 auditing and employee classification reviews.  As they say, the work of the HR professional is never done.
