Avoiding Wage And Hour Audits

About This Course:
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.
