Compliance & Training

Compliance & Training

Do you ever wonder if your business is operating in compliance with state and federal law?You may be operating without fully appreciating the extent to which your policies, procedures, and training tools (or lack thereof) unnecessarily expose your business to administrative actions and liability. I can conduct a compliance audit of your business that will help you identify potential risks and develop best practices for minimizing regulatory exposure.

Or maybe you recently had a violation? Are you confident that you have taken steps to ensure that another violation is not right around the corner? In Oregon and Washington, the OLCC and WSLCB have adopted escalating penalty schedules in which the penalty for each subsequent violation of a similar type in a set period (typically two years) is progressively greater. Subsequent violations may result in more than just the payment of a financial penalty, such as a suspension, an enforceable compliance plan, or even license cancellation. Compliance problems may also have serious consequences for businesses that have lottery, including the loss of lottery.
