The Service Contract Act: Compliance Challenges & Liabilities When Moving Government Freight


Webinar Description:

Compliance with the Service Contract Act (SCA) is extremely challenging for the trucking industry because carriers need to track the time each employee spends assisting in the movement of the freight.  This fact makes specialized employee compensation, along with accounting records, your only defense when audited. If you haul federal freight, you don’t want to miss this webinar.

Join us on January 30th at 2pm to learn:

-       What triggers the SCA compliance;

-       how to comply; and

-       the severe penalties for noncompliance

Moderator: Rich Pianka, Deputy General Counsel, American Trucking Associations
