Comply with Federal, State and Local Regulations and be Audit ready!

Regulatory agencies, especially those that impact the workplace historically develop strategic plans that focus on how they will create audit plans to mitigate compliance violations. Although the regulatory agencies create strategic plans, there are many other factors that determine audit and compliance efforts. Employers should be aware of the many factors that determine an audit and prepare for mitigation. During this information-packed webinar, expert speaker Margie Faulk will discuss the below factors that determine audits:

  • Regulatory Agencies Strategic Plans (usually developed for 3-5 year increments)
  • Current Presidential Administration Focus-this factor has huge implications because it will determine the direction of the regulatory agencies. Employers should prepare for several reversals of previous regulations and the development of new regulations impacting the workplace
  • Industry Targeting-Many regulatory agencies have awareness of industries that historically perpetuate compliance violations. These industries are on “a list” and therefore are monitored. For example, for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) monitors the agricultural, retail, farming, and food processing industries since they are more likely to hire legal immigrants and illegal immigrants.
  • Complaints and allegations by employees-these could be disgruntled employees, true complaints of discriminatory practices, false allegations, and other employee complaints. In this factor, it doesn’t matter if the allegations are true or not. The Employer has the obligation to dispute any allegations and prove they did not do what was alleged. These types of cases impact Employers' potential litigation exposure, reputation, fines and penalties, and budget.

Margie will also discuss and provide the list of federal regulatory agencies impacting workplace audit initiatives, including but not limited to:

  • Department of Labor (DOL)
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  • Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • American with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Affordable Care Act (ACA)
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
  • National Labor Regulations Board (NLRB)
