Critics complain that HR professionals spend too much time on administrative tasks to the detriment of furthering business goals. Indeed, long-term survey research by the University of Southern California’s Center for Effective Organizations shows that HR professionals in low-performance organizations spend almost one-third of their time maintaining records, auditing or controlling. Even in high-performance organizations, HR professionals spend almost one-quarter of their time on these tasks. It’s no wonder: The scope of employment laws, regulations and guidelines with which employers must comply is ever expanding, with mandates from all levels of government. This cover package surveys the status and potential future of global, federal and state regulatory compliance, and includes a look at technology solutions available for one common challenge—wage and hour rules.
