The employer-employee relationship strains both sides in uncertain times, and businesses need CPAs, controllers, and other advisors to provide understanding of the complex legal, tax, and health care issues associated with all aspects of employment, especially now. This course provides in-depth coverage of this critical area. Updated and supplemented throughout the year for breaking developments.

  • Employment issues in the economy – Telecommuters and other special situations
  • Legal liability issues – Recognition of age discrimination, sex discrimination, FLSA issues, minimum wage, overtime, sexual harassment, and more
  • Fringe benefit issues – COBRA, Family and Medical Leave Act, and what is new in health care
  • Medical plans: who is a full-time employee?
