FLSA Compliance Update

One simple mistake with FLSA classification of employees could put your company in jeopardy of getting hit with expensive fines and penalties. Ensure 100% compliance and eliminate the risk by attending

Program Description:

There Are 14.5 Million Reasons You’ll Want to Attend This Seminar!

Did you know that one New England company was slapped with $14.5 million dollars in fines and penalties solely because of the “employer’s misapplication of the basic principles of the FLSA”? And, even though the company had simply made an honest mistake in its interpretation of the laws, that didn’t make writing a $14.5 million dollar check any easier for the company owners.

It’s rulings like these, and the thousands of others that are made against companies just like yours every day, that make FLSA Compliance Update 2006 potentially the most important training you’ll attend all year!

Join us for this quick-hitting, one-day update and ensure your company’s compliance with one of the most complex and far-reaching sets of rules and regulations on the books today!

Gain the Expert Insight of a Real FLSA Professional
When you attend this training, rest assured that your trainer is a seasoned professional with an extensive background in dealing with the complexities of FLSA. A true pro in every sense of the word.

You'll learn foolproof shortcuts and strategies to ensure every one of your employees is classified correctly under FLSA guidelines (the #1 mistake all companies make across the country) … whether exempt employees are allowed to perform nonexempt work and still stay exempt … and how to interpret those maddening gray areas in the law that trip up even the most well-meaning businesses!

Avoid Costly Fines, Penalties, and Embarrassment From FLSA Noncompliance
You’ll also learn how to keep your records updated, accurate, and complete, which may be your best defense if you ever find yourself in a court of law! You’ll discover firsthand what information the courts are demanding to see from companies like yours – and most importantly, how to get that information immediately if it’s not in your records right now!

Sure, you may not ever get hit with a multimillion dollar fine like that unfortunate company we’ve already mentioned. But, do you want to stand up in front of your senior management group and explain why an employee – or a group of employees – brought a lawsuit against your company for FLSA violations that occurred under your watch? Probably not.

Don’t wait! Enroll today and gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re doing everything right in complying with complicated and confusing FLSA standards! Don’t make a million dollar – or a $14.5 million dollar – mistake! Register right now!
