Employers Should Be Prepared for a DOL Wage and Hour Audit

In the wake of COVID-19, many employers have adjusted work arrangements, schedules, pay, and duties. They changed their business model, transitioned employees remotely, and hired contractors. In light of these changes, businesses should ensure they're prepared for a wage and hour audit. SHRM's latest Employment Law article recommends employers involve their labor and employment counsel when conducting an internal audit.

We can help ensure that your business is compliant with FLSA's standards and record-keeping practices. If you have any questions about whether your business is compliant, contact Shannon now. “Don't wait until the investigator comes knocking at your door.

Trainings and Processes, How Can We Help?

Why Soft Skills Matter?

Soft skills are not tangible as hard skills, which can be obtained through education and experience. Soft skills are more personality-focused, creative, communitive, organized, leadership and teamwork-focused, and more. According to a recent survey, essential soft skills that employers look for when hiring new employees are dependability, teamwork, problem-solving, and flexibility.

Do you conduct exit interviews?

Exit interviews gather information about the reason for an employee's departure and are critical steps sometimes missed by many employers. A well-designed exit interview helps employers identify workplace issues and concerns that impact employee retention and turnover. It is also a forum for departing employees to share feedback that can help you understand what you're doing right and the areas in which you can improve. Our Gotcha Covered HR consultants can help up-design an updated exit process. See our services here.
