It can happen at any time, and often incites panic: The Department of Labor has notified you that it will be performing a wage and hour audit of your organization. Your best defense for this dreaded scenario? Preplanning. Understanding the potential scope of the investigation, the type of information the investigator will review, and the location and condition of that information will go a long way toward ensuring your survival.
Employers can suffer significant losses from a DOL audit. These audits can cause major disruptions throughout the organization as attention and resources are diverted away from daily work responsibilities. And, if the DOL finds wage and hour violations — and it frequently does — your organization may be responsible for paying back wages, future wages, liquidated damages, civil fines and court costs.
Proactivity is the single most important way you can prepare your organization. Join 30-year veteran of employment and labor law, attorney David Ritter, for this critical webinar to learn what you can do to prepare your organization for a wage and hour audit.
