One of the biggest problems we see is South Carolina entrepreneurs and businesses struggling with compliance. The alphabet soup of laws designed to regulate businesses and agencies whose job it is to enforce those laws is astounding. FLSA, OSHA, FMLA, ADA, EEOC, NLRB: the list goes on and on. We know our clients don’t have time to keep track of all the new and changing laws that apply to them – they are too busy running their businesses. That’s why we at Willcox, Buyck & Williams started a compliance team.
Legal and Regulatory Tracking
Our federal, state, and local governments enact hundreds, sometimes thousands, of pages of new laws and rules each year. It is simply too much for a business without a dedicated compliance team to keep up with. Therefore, many of our clients have outsourced their need to keep up with all the latest regulatory developments to us.
We provide summaries of new developments that are customized to meet the needs of our clients, informing them only about the legal changes that impact their industry so they don’t have to wade through reams of new laws trying to determine what is actually relevant.
One of the services our clients find most helpful is our compliance audit program. We can come into your business and do an audit of many of the practices and procedures you must comply with. We can also arrange for specialists to come in and audit the areas in which we are not experts. For example, we can arrange for someone who is an expert in food safety to inspect your kitchen in the same way a government inspector would. We then provide a report on areas of concern, and a plan for making improvements, so that when the government’s auditors and inspectors do come, you are ready.
Resolving Compliance-Related Citations and Legal Actions
If you are currently facing a citation, fine, or legal action because you were found to be non-compliant, we can help you resolve your dispute with the regulators and get back to business. We regularly negotiate and settle compliance-related issues on behalf of our clients. We have also represented many clients who wanted to challenge the government’s findings of non-compliance in court.
If you are a South Carolina business or entrepreneur, we want to be your go-to compliance team. Working with us is like having an in-house compliance team, but with the efficiencies that come with sharing the cost of keeping up with all of the new rules and regulations with our other clients.
