Course Description

Don’t laugh. Companies across America are finding themselves on the wrong end of lawsuits and audits for payroll regulations violations. And the size of your company doesn’t exempt you from paying the price for your mistakes. Case in point: Recently, a nursing home operator paid $1.1 million in fines and back pay over wage and hour violations.

Payroll law has become so complex and ever-changing that it’s easy to make mistakes. That’s why we developed Payroll Law 2006, a one-day workshop that will show you exactly where you are vulnerable and more importantly, how you can fix the problem.

What You'll Learn:

Learn Critical FLSA Regs That You Cannot Afford To Not Know
After your training, you’ll know exactly where you’re vulnerable in complying with complex FLSA mandates … identify common mistakes that get most companies hauled into court … and ensure 100 percent accuracy and compliance. You’ll also cover special payroll situations like garnishments and levies, involuntary deductions, and other benefit-administration challenges.

When you return to the office, you’ll be armed with the knowledge you need to self-audit your processes, clean up your records, and ensure that every employee, contractor, intern, or other “special case” is classified, paid, and reported correctly – saving you from hassles, headaches – and potential lawsuits down the road.

You'll Also Learn About:

  • FLSA
  • FMLA
  • FSA
  • FUTA
  • Comp Time
  • Section 530
  • Garnishments
  • Levies
  • And more!

Discover What’s Happening in Payroll Law Today, and What’s on the Horizon
We’ll close out your session with a frank discussion about the future of payroll law and how it will affect you and your company. Our expert staff has kept tabs on what’s happening on Capitol Hill, talked with payroll experts, and filtered out all the unnecessary information you don’t need. In short, we’ve done the work for you, so you can spend your time doing your job instead of reading countless journals, articles, and legal briefs.
