Proactive, Strategic Protocols and Policies to Address the Issues in DOL Audits and Investigations

Almost every employer is committing some kind of wage-hour violation under either the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or corresponding state law.  This is for many reasons.  Many wage hour laws are “black and white” and easy to prove, such as miscalculation of minimum wage and overtime rates (with all proper inclusions to the regular rate), while many, such as the white collar exemption laws, create difficult standards for compliance.  Again some wage hour laws are difficult to police and comply with, such as to know when time spent by employees in activities before or after their shift may be considered as working time and therefore compensable.  (There are many of these off-the-clock cases).

Lastly, many wage hour laws are simply unknown to employers, like the New York State “spread time” law.  In addition, the FLSA must always be considered in relation to state and local news.  These laws may provide for greater rights for employees.  As a general rule, whichever law is stricter (against the employer) is the one that must be complied with.

Against this scary backdrop, think about DOL investigations and questions such as:

  • How do they begin?
  • Does a DOL (federal or state) simply conduct random, swoop type audits over an entire industry, or on an entire block or stretch of highway?
  • Are the agencies complaint driven?
  • What happens when a complaint is filed?
  • How much information must be turned over?
  • How much should be turned over?
  • What is the best way to deal with the audit, both before, day of, and afterwards?
  • Should you allow employees to be interviewed? 

Employers need to be able to recognize when potential issues may exist, especially if there are several workers (i.e. class) possibly involved. Join this Live Webinar with expert speaker Mark Tabakman to learn the “art” of recognizing when such issues (and possible exposures) may be present and how they can be rectified before real trouble arises. The session will analyze problem areas and suggest proactive, strategic protocols and policies to address the numerous, consequential issues that arise in every audit/inspection scenario.
