Why should you attend this webinar?

Employers must arm themselves with the workplace regulations that will impact their organisation 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.
