In many states, the Department of Labor and Industries performs routine audits of retail, grocery, contracting, and food-service businesses to determine if the establishment is following all federal, state, and local laws governing overtime, underage workers, and workers compensation. (You may also see these referred to as L&I audits.) Like any audit, failing a Labor & Industries audit may result in heavy fines and significantly reduce profits. Your insurance company may also perform an audit rather than a state agency.
Labor & Industries auditors will review your payroll, accounting, and schedules for compliance. This is a daunting task if your employee schedule records are kept in notebooks, sticky-notes, scraps of paper, and Excel spreadsheets. However, with TimeForge, audits are much easier to manage. TimeForge ensures that historical records are always available. Employers can easily print or download these records simply logging into TimeForge and running the appropriate report on any past, present or future schedule. TimeForge stores schedules and records forever. Audits are now simple!
