Chicago, IL, October 4, 2016 – Access, the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States and Latin America, is showcasing its cloud-based application FileBRIDGE for HR at the HR Technology Conference 2016 (Booth #2804). Its goal: to reach human resource (HR) professionals whose mission it is to unify disparate IT and paper systems into a complete, easy-to-use, cloud-based enterprise solution.

“As the volume of content continues to rise, large and small enterprises don’t know what they have until it’s too late,” said Jim Farrell, SVP Products at Access. “FileBRIDGE for HR provides a way to discover the content, recognize its value, and then act on it for better business insight and outcomes.”

With configurable workflows and automated compliance monitoring, FileBRIDGE for HR drives compliance and provides a single view of an employee file in one place by integrating with existing systems. Information Governance is embedded throughout the product, empowering senior HR Executives, HR Generalists and HR Systems’ leaders to stay in compliance and significantly reduce the pain of an audit or a legal discovery while easily providing access to any HR document.

On the heels of several years of increasingly strict employment eligibility verification enforcement, the government has recently increased fines for Form I-9 violations, making it more critical than ever that employers exercise compliant hiring practices.

Penalties for Form I-9 infractions have increased, effective August 1, 2016. There are two types of violations that will be punished more harshly: (1) the employment of individuals who are not authorized to work in the U.S. and (2) Form I-9 paperwork errors. The adjustment, a federal mandate in response to inflation, will result in an increase in fines anywhere between 35 percent and 96 percent, depending on the infraction.

According to Farrell, “If large and small enterprises had HR and IT systems in place to ensure legislative compliance obligations were met, they would spend less time on mundane tasks like employment eligibility verifications, I-9s, HIPAA and PCI compliance, and certification and training requirements.”

He added that more time could be devoted to “Human Capital” mandates such as leadership building, mentoring and talent evaluation.

The HR Technology Conference and Exposition runs October 4 – 7 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
