Avoiding Wage And Hour Audits
|Date / Time:
Wage and hour violations continue to occupy a large portion of the enforcement agenda of the United States Department of Labor. In 2015 alone, investigations have resulted in the issuance of findings that employers have failed to comply with federal wage and hour laws to the tune of $74 million in back wages for more than 102,000 workers.
Because such high costs of noncompliance can also include significant interest and penalty/fine assessments, employers must be vigilant in their compliance efforts to avoid federal and state wage and hour compliance audits.
This webinar will provide strategies on effective compliance with wage and hour requirements, discuss how employers can stay on top of compliance issues with occasional self-audits of their operations, and provide other practical suggestions on how best to ensure that your payroll practices continue to meet all wage and hour requirements at both the federal and state levels.

|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.
