Working in the realm of human resources involves staying up-to-date on a lot of topics, and language access is one of them. Whether it’s a Workers’ Compensation claim or a sexual harassment issue, it is important for all employees to know what their rights and responsibilities are. It is also important for HR personnel to make sure that they educate their employees regarding company policies in the employees’ native language. That way the employee understands what they can and can’t do. This will make everything easier on HR, as well, making handling misconduct easier, because the employee will understand what they did wrong. Employee manuals and safety warnings should be in a language your employees can understand, whether that language is English, Spanish, or any of the other thousands of languages spoken worldwide.
