Wage and hour laws are incredibly complex. That’s why even well-intentioned employers can find themselves facing a DOL investigation.  And when that happens, the stakes are extremely high.

Even small mistakes can result in devastating liability for back pay and fringe benefits. In some cases, wage and hour violations can even result in years of debarment from federal government contracting — a double whammy that cuts into existing resources while cutting off new revenue.

If you ever face an investigation, are there ways to minimize the negative consequences? Plus, are there things you can be doing right now to reduce your chances for being targeted for an investigation in the first place?  Yes!  Sign up today to find out.

In this 90-minute webinar, wage-and-hour compliance expert Shlomo D. Katz shows you how to reduce the risks surrounding DOL investigations. Step by step, he will help you prepare, from understanding what rights and obligations employers have, to how to conduct yourself during the investigation. You will also learn how to limit negative consequences by knowing exactly when to call in your attorney and the best way to go about contesting the investigator’s findings.

Also: discover best practices for avoiding an investigation. You will discover how to use compliance self-audits to spot and stop the types of activities DOL deems “fishy” — before they bring investigators knocking on your door. You will also benefit from practical “culture” secrets that encourage workers to come to you rather than to DOL with complaints about perceived wrongs and borderline violations. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar. 

Reserve your space now for the know-how to survive and even avoid wage-hour investigations, including:

  • How DOL decides whom to investigate
  • Tips for reducing the risk of being targeted for a DOL investigation
  • Employers’ rights and obligations during and after an investigation
  • What to expect and how to behave during an investigation
  • Best practices for compliance self-audits

Remember, a recent FY average per-employee amount owed by employers found to be in violation of wage-hour laws was almost $9,000. Add up your employees, plus potential legal fees, plus the risk of being debarred from government contracting and the stakes of DOL investigations are clear.  Don’t miss this chance to get clear on how to troubleshoot your own potential exposure.
