An Automation Alley Roundtable Series – Are You Ready for a DOL Audit?
August 9, 2018 8:30 a.m. EST - August 9, 2018 10:30 a.m.
Due to changes initiated by the office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), I-9 audits are expected to rise 400% in fiscal year 2018. Audits will increase to verify that employers are staying compliant and their employees are authorized to work in the United States.
All U.S. employers are subject to an ICE audit of workers’ employment eligibility. No matter if you oversee hiring at a large company with multiple offices across the U.S., or you’re an HR manager at a small business with just one location, it is your responsibility to ensure I-9 compliance at your organization. Employers found not in compliance could face large civil fines and criminal penalties, loss of their business licenses, or debarment from government contracts.
Are your I-9’s complaint?
The mission statement of the DOL is “to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.”
In order to do this, the department of labor enforces labor law compliance by performing audits and administering penalties for potential negligence. Imagine that moment of panic when you open a letter from the Department of Labor saying you are being audited. What do you do? Are you prepared? Where do you start?
Are your health and welfare benefit plans compliant?
Join HRPro/BenePro at Automation Alley for a roundtable discussion focused on tips to help you get through a DOL audit, and more importantly, help you make sure that your I-9s and welfare benefit plans comply with ERISA before an audit occurs.
