Human resource (HR) management covers a broad spectrum of workforce activities. Despite its integral role, HR is often considered a “soft” area and management may not understand the inherent risks involved with this function, including employment law issues, compensation and benefit plan design, recordkeeping, and potential fraud issues.

In today’s environment, some new issues have moved to the forefront in HR, including executive management ethics, health-care costs and reform, and HR outsourcing. Organizations should audit the HR function to perform routine checkups (uncover any unfavorable conditions and set up a treatment plan), determine how to best align HR operations with organizational goals, and ensure compliance with federal and state employment regulations.

In this 2nd Edition, author Kelli Vito includes:

  • Updated content based on HR best practices and news.
  • NEW revised and expanded Risk Checklist.
  • NEW Risk Impact and Control Matrix.
  • Employment law updates.
  • Updated HR websites.
  • Updated HR records retention schedules.
  • Expanded graphics.


This handbook is an essential tool for internal auditors to examine the technical and practical dimensions of the HR function and to create a comprehensive system that adds value to the organization.
