Many companies have challenges keep track and keeping up with all the workplace laws and regulations that impact companies with more than 20 employees when they are in one state. Think of the challenges when the company has locations in multiple states and even across International locations. Companies are at risk for several workplace laws that can impact many parts of an organization. From staffing, hiring, compensation, background screening, employee leave management, performance, social media, public sector, termination and discrimination are just some of the areas that will impact the risk management in companies and companies should take this seriously.

Fines and penalties lead the list of compliance concerns in multi-state laws. What works in one state will not work in another. A company without a knowledgable HR professional or compliance resource can get drowned in all the ways that the multi-state differences can be confusing, time consuming, multifaceted and complicated to ensure that an organization complies. Here are other factors that can impact the risk for multi-state organizations:

  • Employee applications

Why should you attend?

As you can see, the list above is not exhaustive. In fact, it does not include all the workplace regulations that are indicated in some of the states. Although the list is daunting, there is light at the end of the tunnel. 

As a compliance officer for organizations, I was able to provide resources for the organizations that helped them navigate the numerous workplace compliance challenges. The goal is not to train you to be an expert in each of these areas, but to be aware enough to mitigate compliance concerns and make you a champion in your organization. 

This seminar will help you identify the many workplace regulations that impact not only state specific organizations but, it will help identify the numerous regulations for multi-state organizations.
