Non-compliance with legal obligations exposes an employer to risk of both civil and statutory liability as well as harm to its corporate reputation.

Learning Objectives:

<  Understanding an employer’s legal compliance obligations

<  Identifying the subject matter appropriate for an internal HR audit

<  Identifying post-audit reporting and action items

Who should attend:

Human resource professionals of all levels.
