Examination of records and documents
A review of employer practices and policies may detect violations, questionable exemption determinations, or dubious methods of compensation. Achieving compliance causes the accrual of back wages to cease. Avoiding close questions reduces the probability of a DOL investigation or a collective-action suit by plaintiffs.
If back pay restoration is being considered (as a result of self-audit, compliance evaluation, or DOL investigation), Morris can compute the unpaid wages or provide guidance.
Enforcement Action by the Wage and Hour Division
You have been informed by the DOL Wage and Hour Division that your firm, organization, or public agency will be investigated to determine compliance status. What should you do now? Get expert help right away. These laws are extremely complex, and an employer needs someone "in his or her corner" who is as knowledgeable as is the investigator.
Even if the investigation has already begun, or it has been completed but you have not yet paid back wages, consultation will be helpful. While it is to your advantage that an experienced and competent Wage and Hour expert is involved early in the investigation process, obtaining assistance during or subsequent to the investigation is nevertheless beneficial to you.
Services are available nationally (via telephone conferences and email), including FLSA,Service Contract Act, and Davis-Bacon Act consultation, compliance assistance, DOL investigation guidance, self-audit coordination, and litigation support as a consulting expert.
