Get Up to Speed FAST on HIPAA Compliance and Key Legislative Issues That Impact HR

Two Cutting-Edge Workshops on Essential HR Topics:
Attend One or BOTH for an Incredible Day of Training!

Program Description

As an HR professional, there’s not a job on the planet harder hit by the impact of legislative and regulatory changes than yours.

Whether it’s HIPAA, FMLA, FLSA, ADA or the rest of the regulatory alphabet soup, the laws and rules affecting your HR function seem to change almost daily. It’s your job to know the ins and outs of these laws to keep your company out of legal hot water — a huge responsibility, to say the least.
But the daunting task of staying up to the minute on dozens of ever-changing compliance issues is about to get a whole lot easier, thanks to two brand new, cutting-edge workshops. HIPAA Compliance & the HR Department and Emerging Issues in HR: A Regulatory Update are information-packed half-day workshops designed to deliver — in plain English — the “most important of the most important” on these two essential HR topics.

HIPAA Compliance & the HR Department spells out key requirements of HIPAA compliance, including “best practices” for handling the new privacy rule and upcoming security requirements. You’ll also find out how to avoid HIPAA’s trouble spots that often trip up HR pros, as well as what to do when HIPAA overlaps with other governmental regulations like COBRA. Most important, you’ll get all your questions expertly answered by your trainer — an authority on HIPAA compliance issues.

Emerging Issues in HR: A Regulatory Update will get you up to speed fast on crucial legal issues that impact HR, including FMLA, ADA, FLSA, Workers’ Compensation and more. This workshop is so current, in fact, that we can’t fully describe the agenda in this brochure; it will be revised between now and the date you attend so we can fill you in on the status of the very latest legislation pending before Congress and regulatory agencies.

Our workshops have been set up in concise half-day sessions, with HIPAA in the morning and the regulatory update in the afternoon. While you have the option to attend just one session, we firmly believe you’ll want to stay for both fact-filled programs. Just getting your questions on these complex HR topics answered by an expert is alone worth the price of the enrollment fees!
There’s no faster or better way to get the “must-know” information you need than to attend these cutting-edge workshops designed for busy HR professionals like you!

Bottom-line: Make even one mistake concerning compliance with HIPAA, FLSA, FMLA, ADA and all the rest, and you can get your company fined, sued or both. Isn’t it worth spending one energizing day away from the office to upgrade your knowledge on these crucial issues? You’ll leave with a ton of new information — and the confidence that comes with knowing you’ve got your organization’s bases covered!
