Risk and Compliance

Trust the Makai HR Experts to Help You Stay Compliant

Human Resources Risk and Compliance Expertise

Hawaii is a great place to live, but one of the toughest states to own a business in. With over 100 different labor laws employers need to worry about, it’s not easy staying compliant.

Between 80,000 and 100,000 cases are filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) every year*. Average settlement and judgement amounts can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars — and that doesn’t even factor in your time, stress and sleepless nights.

​At Makai HR, we’d like to think of ourselves as a true HR partner.
