About This Course:
As a finance professional, safeguarding corporate assets is likely one of your top priorities. Unfortunately, considering our litigious society, overly competitive job market and ever-changing regulatory landscape, labor and payroll departments can be a hotbed of risk for fraud and litigation. Perpetrators may come in all forms, and schemes may arise from countless variables. These issues can suddenly over-extend today's executive, who already has been tasked with doing more with less.

You will learn about what payroll fraud is and how it is committed, detected and deterred. Coverage begins with an explanation of the fraud methodology and the recent penalties, fines and sanctions levied against companies. This will be followed by detailed examination of the most prevalent payroll fraud schemes and litigation risks facing employees, owners, managers and executives.

Heed the warning of the proverbial saying: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" (Franklin). When appropriately applied to your payroll and labor function, this practice could result in substantial savings.
