Creating a Compliance Program That Will Protect Your Bottom Line https://americanstaffing.net/webinars/compliance-program-that-will-protect-your-bottom-line/ Thu, 22 Aug 2019 18:13:26 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?post_type=webinar&p=133098 Who Should Attend

Highlights

In 2017, the top 10 employment-related class action settlements totaled $2.7 billion, up from roughly $1 billion in 2016. At the same time, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of new employment laws passed at the state and local level.

In addition to local minimum wages, sick leave, and background check rules, there are entirely new frameworks for employee scheduling, pay equity, and paid leave. These laws create administrative challenges and new risks for your business, as the patchwork of legislation is hard to track and is often inconsistent or contradictory.

Clients expect staffing professionals to be experts in the law and reduce their employment risk. During this webinar, learn how to implement a practical, proactive compliance program that will help your firm reduce the frequency and severity of sexual harassment, discrimination, wage and hour, and background check claims.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • The elements of an effective compliance program
  • The roles of operations, HR, and subject matter experts in ensuring compliance
  • How to reduce the risk of sexual harassment, discrimination, wage and hour, and background check claims
