Avoid the Money Pit

Financial Planning Association – Business Solutions Conference

How Human Resources Can Increase Your Profits, Gain The Respect of Your Employees and Raise the Viability of Your Business

In the movie, The Money Pit, decisions and lack of information led to a series of surprising, agonizing and very expensive outcomes.   Just as “let the buyer beware”, the employer should beware of these costly human resource “pitfalls”.

These pitfalls can cost several hundred thousand dollars or more. Once a complaint is filed, an audit begun, — you’re “on the radar”   – more audits, investigations and lawsuits can arise. The burden of proof and documentation rests on the employer.

This session will help you begin work on some of the top Human Resource issues so that you and your firm can concentrate on running your business profitably and having productive employees.
