In order to remain compliant with labor laws, businesses have to invest some company resources into mitigating risk. One common practice is to keep an attorney on retainer to help with legal matters and counsel. Some businesses go one step further and have legal teams investigate workplace issues. This might provide peace of mind, but can cost hundreds of dollars an hour. In each of these cases, having access to an HR professional who can cut costs, provide best practice advice, and do the leg work for attorneys is a necessary part of remaining compliant.
Company attorneys want HR professionals who know labor laws at an in-depth level. After all, if an HR advisor doesn't understand the complexities of labor laws, then the advisor will be unable to assist legal teams in effectively ensuring compliance for businesses.
