Human Resources

The Human Resources department, managed by Kerry Chan, provides top-level human resource services to architecture and engineering firms. Most people engaged in business, architects and engineers included, sadly are often not aware of the ever-changing employment laws, benefits, and new hire procedures. A small negligence can lead to fines and costly lawsuits. AEB provides expert human resource services to allow a business to grow and thrive knowing that the company is in full compliance with Federal and State labor laws including OSHA, EEOC, FEHA, FMLA, CFRA, and FLSA.

Our Human Resources Department is affiliated with the Society in Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Professional in Human Resource Association (PIHRA). Our Director of HR, Kerry Chan, is certified in HR management, and has fourteen years of related experience, thirteen years in the management capacity. Our human resource services will allow you to run your business in compliance with all the current employment laws and regulations.


Compliance – Our team will limit your liability as an employer by making sure you are compliant with federal and state laws. Laws are constantly being changed, and we will manage your HR services to be up-to-date with all the rules. We will make sure you and your employees undergo anti-harassment trainings as mandated by the state and federal government. Furthermore, we will complete all the required paperwork for reporting and leave you with a paper trail.

Benefits Administration – Our staff will make sure the benefits a company offers its employees are current and compliant. With the current changes due to the health care reform, our HR professionals will make sure that a company has access to the best health care options at the most affordable prices.

Employee Relations – Our HR department will make your search for qualified new employees a smoother process with recruitment assistance, logging of resumes, pre-screening of job applicants and new hire orientations. If you need to bring in employees from out of the country, we will assist with H1-B and other employment visa petitions. Furthermore, HR will handle the processing of leaves of absence, separations, as well as conduct exit interviews. In addition, HR handles employee verifications, keeps all personnel records and responds to inquiries on the company’s behalf.

Worker’s Compensation – Worker’s compensation procedures are regulated and often complicated. Our certified HR professionals will make sure your firm abides by worker’s comp regulations and will manage claims if the need arises.

401K plan Administration – Our team will ensure compliance with IRS rules and regulations and handle dissemination of any pertinent 401K related information.  We will also handle 401K account changes by participants and serve as a liaison for 401K plan providers.
