Wage and Hour Audits: Top Risk Areas for Employers - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: This presentation will demonstrate the importance of conducting internal wage and hour audits and will enable you to be better prepared to respond to any surprise DOL wage and hour investigations that your business may face.

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division is responsible for administering and enforcing a number of federal laws that set basic labor standards. The Wage and Hour Division conducts investigations for a variety of reasons, all having to do with enforcement of the laws and ensuring an employer’s compliance. Believe it or not, the DOL does not require an investigator to previously announce the scheduling of a wage and hour investigation. The investigator can initiate unannounced wage & hour investigations, in many cases, in order to observe normal business operations, and collect facts on how you run your business and whether your company is violating the FLSA.

Regular wage and hour audits should be conducted for a number of reasons. Companies can check for employees who have been misclassified in the past and who are entitled to retroactive overtime pay. Audits can determine whether supervisors and managers are treating both exempt and nonexempt employees appropriately under the law. Audits help employers to avoid the possibility of costly lawsuits by addressing any problems with FLSA policies before they are brought to the attention of a lawyer or the DOL. Last, audits help show a DOL auditor or other legal entity that your company does all it can to ensure compliance with the FLSA.

Join our webinar on August 13 to learn the steps to a successful audit to keep your company free from complaints.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Learn why audits are important and how often they should be done
  •  Examine the clear steps to a successful audit
  • Understand the risk areas in your company and the process for correcting your policies and procedures
  • Ensure compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • And much more!
