According to a recent Brandon Hall Group survey, less than one-third of responding organizations indicated they’re ready for new or updated wage and hour law regulations. It’s clear many need to better prepare for the changes to come as well as have a stronger strategy for managing compliance once changes take effect. There’s no room for error when adhering to compliance rules —especially those associated with the Fair Labor Standards Act, paid sick leave, and joint employer regulations.

By investing in fully automated workforce management processes rather than having a hodgepodge of manual and partially automated solutions, organizations can better predict risk, provide solutions to mitigate existing risk, and create effective communication to employees of pending or existent changes to wage and hour law — enabling them to minimize risk, improve productivity, and enhance employee engagement.

Brandon Hall's Cliff Stevenson, principal analyst, and Claude Werder, vice president of research operations will be joined by Kronos compliance product strategist Lynne Levy to outline how your organization can build a stronger compliance strategy. You’ll get valuable information on:

  • How your organization compares to your peers’ level of readiness
  • Minimizing risk with technology and automation
  • Finding your organization on the compliance climate matrix and learning real-world next steps
