Employers must arm themselves with the workplace regulations that will impact their organization and their employees or else pay hefty fines and penalties for non-compliance. It is a proven fact that regulatory agencies are targeting small, medium and large companies in many industries and states to confirm compliance with the regulations above.
Audits of Employers are usually initiated by disgruntled employees or employees currently on your payroll. However, regulatory agencies like the Department of Labor (DOL), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have increased enforcement efforts to target willful violators, increase their budget via fines and penalties and make examples of Employers who violate their regulations.

Why Should Attend
Employers must get prepared for all the employment regulations scheduled to be effective January 1, 2019, and throughout the 2019 year. The Department of Labor (DOL) has increased its efforts to audit companies who have not updated their policies & workplace regulations. Not only are the many new workplace laws that will impact Employers, but also those laws that were effective in 2017-2018 but Employers were not aware.
Employers with multi-state locations are more than ever at risk for non-compliance of regulations unless they develop a process to coordinate workplace required posters, new hire communication required, wage increases, transgender restroom obligations, paid leave regulations per state, regulations, and requirements for terminated employees and regulations for federal contractors.
Managing these laws will determine how Employers will survive strict fines and penalties as well as create a robust risk management strategy for their workplace.
