News Bites: No Company

By Philip Zimmerman

The American Arbitration Association reports that there are now more than 500 in-house employment resolution systems in companies employing over 5 million people. No company is too small to reap the benefits of having a system to help reduce the litigation frequently arising from workplace disputes. CPAs know that a company with as few as two employees can have an internal control system. These companies should also have a written policy statement covering discrimination and sexual harassment and communicate it to all employees. The policy should also include a statement that disputes over payroll should be directed to the payroll clerk and all other employment disputes to another person in the company. Depending on the size of the company, more features can be added, as described by the accompanying article.
