Original program date: November 2017 (this program is no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

No matter what size your business, managing workforce compliance is a complex and high-stakes undertaking. You need to wade through an alphabet soup of acronyms — FLSA. FMLA, ACA, and more — to figure out which labor laws apply to your workforce. Then you need to enforce those regulations accurately and consistently across the organization to minimize compliance risk. But in today’s constantly shifting regulatory environment, keeping up with compliance can seem like an overwhelming challenge.

The good news is that automated HR, timekeeping, leave, and payroll solutions empower your teams to manage compliance with federal, state, and local labor laws and other government and industry regulations through rule-driven enforcement and legislative updates. The more you automate and integrate key workforce and HR functions, the better visibility you’ll have for proactively managing compliance across your workforce — regardless of how often regulations change.

In this program, Laurie McCabe, co-founder of SMB Group, and Toni Coon, CPP, payroll and compliance expert at Kronos, provide valuable insights into:

  • High-impact workforce regulations: Learn which federal, state, and local labor laws you need to watch, how they affect your workforce, and the risks associated with noncompliance.
  • Critical compliance challenges: Find out which factors — from time, budget, and resource constraints to lack of processes and technology — could be impacting your ability to manage compliance effectively.
  • Benefits of automated workforce solutions: Understand how technology provides the integrated framework and automated tools needed to align employment practices with labor laws and regulations.
  • Key criteria for selecting the right technology: Discover the top ten things to look for when evaluating automated workforce solutions for your business.
