Employment Compliance Stress Test

Mitigate employment-related risk

People can make or break a business – that’s a fact. One bad hire can wreak havoc on even the largest of companies. But what if your employment policies and procedures are making your business just as vulnerable as hiring the wrong people? Can your business withstand the impact of a fine or lawsuit?

We have the solution

Osler’s Employment Compliance Stress Test is our tool for helping in-house counsel and HR professionals rest easy. Designed to quickly identify key areas of vulnerability within your organization’s employment function, the stress test involves a targeted review of your key personnel policies and practices, focusing on troublesome “stress points” that repeatedly present challenges to businesses.

We help you overcome the stress of compliance, and underlying threat of invasive investigations or costly litigation, by providing you with the information to proactively address potential issues before they become problems.

When to take the Stress Test

  • Whenever a business is worried about compliance
  • When preparing to report to the Board of Directors
  • When preparing for a strategic transition
  • When acquiring a new business

We use our internally developed compliance framework to evaluate your employment practices and give you what you need, quickly and cost-effectively.
