Governmental agencies on both the federal and state level have recently been mandated to escalate efforts at auditing employers; in some cases, with the goal of identifying areas of systemic non-compliance. Some of these agencies have statutory authority to audit without advance notice.
This complimentary HR Circle program will address how to prepare for these agency audits, even when the auditor shows up at your door without notice. This presentation will include:
Department of Labor audits
Department of Homeland Security audits
Preserving attorney/client communication and work product privileges
How to be proactive in preparing for audits
The program will also touch on the recent effort by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to challenge standard provisions in release agreements.
Labor and Employment Partner Mary Gambardella and White Collar Defense, Investigations and Corporate Compliance Partner Joe Martini will address these scenarios and discuss what employers need to know. This program is beneficial to in-house counsel, legal staff, and human resource colleagues and contacts.
