Don't Mess With The U.S. DOL: Payroll Compliance Strategies For 2016

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Categorizing and compensating workers in accordance with applicable law (and in a manner that will satisfy the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor) has always been a tricky proposition.

Further, employers must be on top of expanding state and local laws regarding paid sick time, wage deductions, and direct deposit in order to structure policies and procedures properly.

This webinar will help persons responsible for payroll obligations to understand the expanding regulations regarding compensation of employees, as well as best practices for implementing company policies in line with such regulations.

We will also explore different types of leaves of absence, and how they affect an employer's payroll obligations. The information will put employers in a better position to ensure their compensation and leave policies meet current legal requirements, as well as best practices.

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.

The live 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.
