Event: EmployerLINC 2013: ‘Government Gone Wild’

Venue: National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Doing business in an increasingly regulated environment means more rules to follow, costlier penalties and lawsuits to avoid, and increased vigilance on the part of employers in the workplace. So if you feel the government is going wild, you’re not alone. At EmployerLINC 2013, McAfee & Taft’s annual labor, employment and employee benefits seminar, presentations include timely updates on state and federal laws and agency activities as well as practical guidance for maintaining legal compliance.

This presentation by Paul Ross and Kathy Neal provides timely updates on audits by the Department of Labor, including targets of FSLA audits, elimination of DOL-supervised voluntary self-audits, best practices for avoiding audits, what to expect if you’re audited and how to handle being audited. They also discuss accelerated enforcement of federal contractors’ equal employment opportunity and affirmative action obligations by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.
