Assist Businesses with Government Audits

The Law Office of Diana Macias Valdez - Labor and Employment Advising
U.S. Department of Labor Audits are on the rise.  The best practice is to be proactive and ensure that if you are audited, no violations will be found and appropriate corrective actions are implemented.  A proactive employer will have up-to-date job descriptions, ensure that employees are properly classified as exempt or non-exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and maintain accurate payroll records.  No employer is too small to be audited, and random audit selections are on the rise.  If you are facing this situation, please contact Ms. Diana Valdez as soon as possible to schedule a consultation.
