Using Payroll Audits To Detect Errors And Fraud
|Date / Time:
As a finance professional, safeguarding corporate assets is likely one of your top priorities. Unfortunately, considering our litigious society, overly competitive job market and ever-changing regulatory landscape, labor and payroll departments can be a hotbed of risk for fraud and litigation. Perpetrators may come in all forms, and schemes may arise from countless variables. These issues can suddenly over-extend today's executive, who already has been tasked with doing more with less.
You will learn about what payroll fraud is and how it is committed, detected and deterred. Coverage begins with an explanation of the fraud methodology and the recent penalties, fines and sanctions levied against companies. This will be followed by detailed examination of the most prevalent payroll fraud schemes and litigation risks facing employees, owners, managers and executives.
Heed the warning of the proverbial saying: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" (Franklin). When appropriately applied to your payroll and labor function, this practice could result in substantial savings.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
