Hey Doc … Our church isn’t of a size to yet need an HR person on staff. Yet, I need help on HR policy and best practices. Our state has lots of laws and I don’t want to run afoul of them.

DRF—Contact your church insurance company. Many have ample resources to help you stay clear of personnel problems. I’m amazed at how much information a good agent can give you at no cost. At some point, do an HR audit. Hire a professional to audit your policy and practices. This may cost anywhere from $1,00-3,000 but it would be money well spend. The audit will produce a task list to bring your church up to state and federal requirements. Then the “fun” of implementation begins! If you need help on an HR audit, contact me.
