Course Description/Agenda


There Are 14.5 Million Reasons
You’ll Want to Attend This Seminar!

Did you know that one New England
company was slapped with $14.5 million dollars in
fines and penalties solely because of the
“employer’s misapplication of the basic principles
of the FLSA”? And, even though the company had
simply made an honest mistake in its interpretation
of the laws, that didn’t make writing a $14.5
million dollar check any easier for the company
owners.


It’s rulings like these, and the
thousands of others that are made against companies
just like yours every day, that make FLSA Compliance
Update 2006 potentially the most important training
you’ll attend all year!


Join us for this quick-hitting,
one-day update and ensure your company’s compliance
with one of the most complex and far-reaching sets
of rules and regulations on the books today!


Gain the Expert Insight of a
Real FLSA Professional


When you attend this training, rest assured that
your trainer is a seasoned professional with an
extensive background in dealing with the
complexities of FLSA. A true pro in every sense of
the word.


You’ll learn foolproof shortcuts
and strategies to ensure every one of your employees
is classified correctly under FLSA guidelines (the
#1 mistake all companies make across the country) …
whether exempt employees are allowed to perform
nonexempt work and still stay exempt … and how to
interpret

those maddening gray areas in the law that trip up
even the most well-meaning businesses!


Avoid Costly Fines, Penalties,
and Embarrassment From FLSA Noncompliance


You’ll also learn how to keep your records updated,
accurate, and complete, which may be your best
defense if you ever find yourself in a court of law!
You’ll discover firsthand what information the
courts are demanding to see from companies like
yours – and most importantly, how to get that
information immediately if it’s not in your records
right now!


Sure, you may not ever get hit
with a multimillion dollar fine like that
unfortunate company we’ve already mentioned. But, do
you want to stand up in front of your senior
management group and explain why an employee – or a
group of employees – brought a lawsuit against your
company for FLSA violations that occurred under your
watch? Probably not.


Don’t wait! Enroll today and gain
the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re
doing everything right in complying with complicated
and confusing FLSA standards! Don’t make a million
dollar – or a $14.5 million dollar – mistake!
