Why should you attend?

The Fair Labor Standards Act is the granddaddy of all payroll laws.  Enacted in 1938, it provides basic protections from abuses like failure to pay a minimum wage and overtime pay. Then there are the child labor laws, the Walsh Healey Act, etc.  More recently we were introduced to the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Family, and Medical Leave Act and the Affordable Care Act.  Next, the Tax Credits and Jobs Act comes along and changes the way we will be computing withholdings. And the laws keep changing.  Is it any wonder that businesses are struggling to comply with this burdensome body of law and regulation?  You can help.  You can become the liaison who knows the law and how to comply with utmost efficiency.

If you are concerned about your company’s ability to comply with the U.S. labor and payroll laws, join us for a quick introduction and help ensure your the company pays your employees fairly and handles tax and other withholdings properly.
