Policy and compliance services have become a critical focus in the HR world today.
Not only does this protect employers and businesses, but it provides a safe and successful working environment for employees. Continue reading below to learn how our Policy and Compliance services can help you safeguard your business and your employees.
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission:
- Most employers with 15 or more employees are required to be compliant with EEOC laws.
- EEOC laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.
- The EEOC has the authority to investigate charges of discrimination against employers who are covered by the law.
By trusting Blue Arbor to handle your staffing, we can help ensure that your business is in compliance so you can avoid running afoul of the EEOC laws.

EEOC law forbids discrimination in every aspect of employment, including hiring and firing.
By using Blue Arbor for staffing, we will ensure that all EEOC guidance is followed in hiring employees, and if there arises a need to let someone go, that will also be handled according to EEOC guidelines.
Blue Arbor will ensure that employee benefits including sick and vacation leave, insurance, access to overtime as well as overtime pay, and retirement programs, are all handled according to EEOC policies.
The EEOC lists many actions that might cause an employer to run afoul of protections against sexual harassment.
Blue Arbor can ensure that you know the rules, as well as help you avoid hiring or firing decisions that might make you vulnerable to sexual harassment claims by employees.
The EEOC has specific guidelines regarding job applicants and the situations in which an employer is allowed to consider their unemployment status before hiring.
