Advanced Certified Payroll Symposium Itinerary

Public Works Compliance Advisors Presents:

Crush It Advanced Certified Payroll Symposiums

Announcing the first ever ADVANCED certified payroll and contract compliance symposium. This symposium is far more comprehensive than a mere compliance workshop or seminar for beginners. Instead, it is contract compliance to the fullest extent—including prevailing wage and DIR compliance. Here, you will be given a compliance-heavy contract from which you are to identify crucial provisions that could result in liquidated damages, the withholding of payments, or DIR fines and penalties. You will learn the five tenants of contract law, as well as how to interpret construction contract compliance at an executive level. Following contract review, you will be required to complete a mock certified payroll cycle, a fringe benefit statement, and a training fund contribution report for journeymen and apprentices. This symposium is recommended for those who have attended the CRUSH IT Prevailing Wage Seminar or have 3 years or more of certified payroll experience.

CRUSH IT is not a slogan, but a method of intense, hands-on experience of deciphering construction contracts.
