Protect Yourself and Your Business By Means Of A Comprehensive

Employment Practices Review

     In light of initiatives by both the California Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to aggressively investigate and enforce wage and hour laws, employers must take proactive steps to ensure their policies and practices are legally compliant.

There is an added value to conducting these reviews as employers can ensure that employees are properly and fairly paid for time worked and that expectations about employee performance are clear.

Use An Audit To Fortify Your Business

     Many employers might be hesitant to conduct audits of their employment practices because they are concerned the review could actually create evidence that might be used in litigation or investigations by DLSE or the DOL. Employers who opt to take the “wait and see” approach, however, open themselves up to greater potential liability. Inaction – or unwillingness to take action – can be misinterpreted by the court as willful violations of the law, thus subjecting employers to even greater liability.
