Next, suggest two (2) actions that HR should take in order to ensure an organization’s compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley. Explain the manner in which HR policies and practices are instrumental in implementing, and ensuring compliance, with legal mandates.
The two actions that I think that Hr should take in order to ensure an organization to compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley will be control deficiency and fraud exposure. HR suppose to know who is hired and getting paid by the company. It all time Hr should know what is going on within there company. HR should look at the company’s mainframe and gather what is unseen and hidden. They should check checks and balances to make sure everyone is getting paid and that there’s money to pay for other things. Check for fraud and other misuse internal wrongdoings that employee do while at work. HR suppose to be the source of the company’s control, nothing gets through unless HR admits that it does. Controlling deficiency can lead to many problems such as hiring, firing, promoting and embezzlement. When dealing with major audits HR should be cover all bases and ensuring that there’s no improperly misuses which may lead to pointe risk liability on the company. For example: When internal employees misuse company’s networks it can very so lead to fraud or identity theft. People that work for major company’s can use clients/employees personal information and misuse it for other things. At my current job, if you leave your computer screen open and another coworker comes in runs someone name that is not on supervision through your screen you will be accountable for the improperly misuse can be fine, lost of job and go to prison; because it was your computer, even if you didn’t do it.

Morals are another individual characteristic that can affect an individual’s ethics. Morals are the rules people develop as a result of cultural norms and values and are, traditionally, what employees learn from their childhood, culture, education, religion, etc. They are usually described as good or bad behavior(Study, n.d.).
