How can you ensure Statutory Compliance for your Organisation?

1. Document all policies & procedures

Mention all the compliances in the employee handbook (digitally/ Manually). This will ensure proof of all the rules and policies of the company for the benefit of both you as an organisation and your employees.

2. Stay updated on changing Acts and Policies

Compliance does not end at formulating policies and putting an Act in print/digital. Ensure that the Acts your company abides by are updated as per the norms of the Government to avoid being overwhelmed later. Since staying updated with changing regulations can be tricky l that automatically gets updated if any law changes. A major benefit of using software is never being non-compliant, and the entire responsibility of compliance lies with the vendor, taking your headaches away.

3. Conduct compliance audits

Audits and reports can help you understand the compliance trends and practices in the organisation and find out just how compliant employees in your organisation are and how compliant the organisation is towards treating its employees.
