Employment regulations change in January and July of each year consistent with changes in legislation. Many employment law firms indicate that January is when federal, state, and local regulations are implemented. However, research lately has shown that July is also now the new January for providing changes and new laws.
Training is the best method to keep track of workplace changes and how to create an effective risk management strategy. At this time over 35 states have workplace changes. It is critical to be informed since ignorance is no excuse for violations.
In this webinar, our speaker Margie Faulk will discuss a risk management strategic plan to reduce compliance violations.

WHY SHOULD ATTEND
Many regulatory agencies may provide a time period before they start auditing the changes in new regulations but Employers should not count on any extensions since they are not mandatory and can provide a false sense of security. Employers should make changes immediately when the regulations are in effect to avoid needless violations.
More changes in regulations were passed in July 2020 and more expected in 2021in different states and Employers must ensure they are ready to accommodate the regulations that have changed in those states.
