Conquering a Department of Labor Investigation (Be Prepared)

All too often, employers are not prepared and negatively influence the outcome of an investigation by failing to:

  • Immediately respond to a request for an appointment by the DOL or a notice requesting documents be provided.
  • Prepare a game plan ahead of time regarding how to proceed once notice of an investigation has been given.
  • Prepare employees for interviews.
  • Fully understand the laws the DOL is there to enforce.
  • Cooperate with the DOL.
  • Seek assistance or representation, if necessary.
