Boards have a duty to see that hospitals and health systems comply with all state and federal laws and regulations, but they generally delegate responsibility for establishing, managing, and monitoring compliance programs to management.

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily.
Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents.
For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.

On March 24, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ (OFCCP's) final rule requiring affirmative action requirements for individuals with disabilities under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and for protected veterans under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) takes effect. The long anticipated final regulations will substantially impact federal contractors and their affirmative action plans for individuals with disabilities and protected veterans.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Leave administration is one of the most challenging aspects of workforce management and an area that continues to become more complicated as leave regulations—and lawsuits—increase. For employers, having to understand and comply with complex federal regulations, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), in addition to myriad local laws, union rules and company policies can be overwhelming. The task of complying with these many regulations often consumes a great deal of time for HR teams, especially those operating across multiple geographies.

all federal, state and local income and employment tax laws and regulations. But like a football team attempting a

Background and History of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
The FLSA regulates minimum wage, overtime, equal pay, recordkeeping,
and child labor. The law is published in Section 29 of the U.S. Code (Section 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)).
The FLSA is enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The FLSA applies in all states, but states are permitted to develop their own laws and regulations to provide even greater protection for their workers than is provided under federal
law. Where the two laws conflict, the law most beneficial to the employee prevails.
Federal safety regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and The
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) make the importance of safety equipment in potentially dangerous
working environments clear. The stringent guidelines for emergency showers and eyewashes, however, don’t
extend to the inclusion of mandatory alarm and electronic monitoring systems on this equipment.
Implementing best practices with the addition of both alarm and wireless monitoring systems is the best way for
workplaces to exceed normal expectations by creating superior emergency response procedures. From initiating an emergency response as soon as safety equipment is engaged to maintaining detailed records of when stations are used, tested, and maintained, these wireless systems can
create safer, more responsive working environments. Not only will this help ensure employee safety, it can make it easier for facilities to stay in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.
