Doing public work for federal, state and local agencies has become riskier and more challenging each year. Small mistakes made while working to meet complex requirements can have enormous consequences. Only contractors working for federal agencies are required by law to implement an ethics and compliance program, but all government contractors are at risk of costly suspension or debarment if violations occur, and all contractors have a reputation to protect.
Associated General Contractors of America's (AGC) eight-part Compliance Webinar Series will provide a practical way to help contractors educate key personnel on the ever-growing risk of liability and help demonstrate your organization’s commitment to following the rules of the road. The eight-part series will cover the False Claims Act, the Davis Bacon Act, illegal gratuities and more.
Attend the first webinar in this series free of charge - Legal Compliance Programs: Why You Should Have One, and What it Needs to Include – on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. EST.
Contractors can register for the full 8-part webinar series or sign up for individual webinars.
All webinars in the series will take place from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. ET. AGC will provide a certificate documenting the attendance of each individual who registers for a webinar.
All series registrants will receive an electronic copy of each webinar. Contractors can sign up for the bundle and watch any sessions missed or for review on-demand at any time.
