Prepare for the Worst: How Employment Audits Can Protect Your Organization

March 2012
Employment Law Notes
In the past few years, federal and state agencies have increased enforcement efforts through investigations and inspections. Now, most businesses can expect to be visited by a government agency at some point during their existence. These visits often occur because the organization was selected for an audit, either at random or in response to a specific employee complaint. Agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may also ask for documentation of personnel policies and practices in the course of investigating a discrimination charge.
