How The Service Works

A Complete Assessment For Complete Compliance

Our experts, including former Department of Labor investigators, have extensive experience with employment law. They'll take the time to give you a thorough and effective assessment of your wage and hour practices by:

  • Interviewing key stakeholders.
  • Reviewing job descriptions and employee classifications for exempt, non-exempt, temporary workers and contractors.
  • Auditing payroll and time-keeping records, time off/leave, and child labor compliance.
  • Reviewing your existing policies or developing new ones that include your procedures for managing work hours, working off the clock, whether meals and breaks are paid, and how deductions are handled.
  • Providing insight into industry best practices and helping you establish effective procedures and processes.

Finally, we'll give you a detailed report of our findings and recommendation for how to maintain compliance and mitigate your risk exposure.
