The Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division normally announces that it is conducting an investigation of your company by sending you a letter (or email) out of the blue. The letter normally gives you a very short window to produce all kinds of records, not just about your employees, but also about your company’s owners and finances. It also usually has a date and time to have a call (or an on-site meeting) with the DOL investigator.
Once you get this letter/email, the first that you should do is contact FairLaw Firm. You may think that you have nothing to hide, or you may be really concerned about what the DOL may find – and what will happen once do. Under any scenario, and having helped clients navigate through DOL investigations, going through the investigation without our counsel can result no issue at all, or it can result in big (expensive) problems.
