Beat Auditors at Their Own Game: Find & Fix Compliance Deficiencies Yourself


Payroll audits are unpleasant at best and extremely costly at worst. You can’t always avoid them, but you can most certainly prepare for one. A proactive internal audit is the best way to discover any compliance deficiencies—before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Department of Labor (DOL) does it for you. Whether it be for wage and hour law or tax law compliance, suffering through an external audit unprepared can be detrimental. 

Learn from payroll expert Vicki Lambert how to use an internal audit to ferret out hidden compliance issues and fraud risks—so you can fix mistakes and plug holes. Lambert will also update you on new auditing compliance guidelines coming down the pike.

After attending this audio event, you’ll understand how to correct payroll compliance deficiencies on your own—before the IRS or DOL hit you with penalties. You’ll have the tools and the knowledge to organize and conduct an internal audit efficiently, even in the midst of your other work duties. Plus, you’ll know what to do if any noncompliance issues do surface. You’ll also learn strategies to convince management why an internal audit is so important.
