Dear HR Practitioners,
Is it HR's scope of work to issue cheques to vendors for payments &/or to employees for expense reimbursement?
1. Sounds more like a role belonging to Accounting Dept. However, nowadays it is very common for SMEs to combine functions into one position.
2. Small company where the role of admin, accounts and HR all rolled into one, the person will likely be tasked to issue vendor payments and staff reimbursements. Generally, it is a financial scope of work and so accounts dept is responsible. HR scope in this aspect, will be verifying these payments or reimbursements are made according to company or HR policy.
