An NJBIA HR Program

No one wants a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour audit. Just the thought makes us sweat. However, it’s important to know that these audits are becoming increasingly common. DOL Wage and Hour audits can take place unannounced or with notice, and you need to be prepared. Regardless of whether an audit is random or triggered by a complaint, employers should be prepared to demonstrate compliance with the wage and hour laws.

Join us on Tuesday, May 9 for a virtual event when Marianne C. Tolomeo, Of Counsel at Connell Foley’s Labor and Employment Group, will provide an engaging presentation to help you understand and prepare for this audit.

Attendees will learn:

  • Best Practices for a Wage and Hour audit,
  • What a Wage and Hour audit is,
  • What can I expect during a DOL audit,
  • How do I prepare for a DOL audit,
  • Communications during the audit,
  • How to respond to document and interview requests,
  • Investigator Walk-thru’s,
  • Employer Rights,
  • What to do if violations are found,
  • The wrap-up interview,
  • and More!
