The Department of Labor Audit – Documentation Requirements

When the Department of Labor comes knocking on the door, a practice only has a certain time frame within which to turn over the requested documentation. Be aware of the types of documentation that the Department of Labor may require so that your practice does not scramble to find the requested information.

THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR MAY REQUEST:
– Payroll records (journals, time cards, and time sheets) for the last two years
– List of employees exempt from minimum wage or overtime rules
– List of employees who hold multiple positions within the entity
– List of major vendors or suppliers
– Documentation that reflects gross revenue for the past three years
– Federal Tax ID Number (EIN)
– Names, addresses, and telephone number of all employees (present and former) within the last two years
– Dates of birth, dates of employment, and job titles of all individuals under the age of 18 who have worked within the past two years
