Department of Labor #2
In the last executive advantage moment we reminded you that the DOL was adding more staff in order to make unannounced visits on employers.
Here is what they’re looking for:
- Names, addresses and telephone numbers of all business owners and company officers such as the president, treasurer, secretary, board of directors and other corporate officers, along with a company organizational chart.
- The legal name of the company and all other names used by the company (for example, “doing business as” names).
- Records showing the company’s gross annual dollar volume of sales for the past three years.
- A list of all employees with their addresses, hourly rate or salary, job titles, shifts and whether the employer considers each employee exempt from overtime.
- Payroll and time records for the past two years, including a copy of the most recently completed payroll.
- Birth dates for all employees under age 18 who worked during the previous 24 months.
- 1099 forms and contract documents with any subcontractors at the establishment.
- The employer’s federal employer identification number.
- The names and telephone numbers of all subcontractors and subcontracted workers on the project.
All an employer is required to provide is found in Regulation 29 C.F.R. 516, including Sections 516.2, 516.5 and 516.6. An employer probably should not provide employee email addresses or phone numbers. FLSA record-keeping regulations don’t require employers to maintain such information.
In the next executive advantage moment we will discuss what takes place at the investigation and common employer errors. If you’re not signed up, do so at the right.
