Walking the Tight Rope of Compensation: "What is Your Safety Net"


Compensation is a top priority and focal point of the Dept. of Labor including EEOC, OFCCP, plaintiff’s attorneys and numerous states who are initiating their own compensation related laws.

This presentation will set the stage for the workplace environment, trends, and strategies you should implement now so you don’t fall off the tight rope.
