DOL Investigations – A Look from the Inside

June 16, 2022 12:00 pm EST Free Webinar

What do you do when a Department of Labor (DOL) investigator shows up at your office? Undergoing a DOL investigation is challenging and can result in significant liability for employers. Join FBT attorneys Fred Gaona III and Jessica Sexton, along with former DOL investigator Barbara Barrett, as they share practical tips and best practices for navigating a DOL investigation from start to finish.

Participants will learn what to expect from Barbara’s extensive experience conducting both FLSA and FMLA investigations, and how outside counsel can achieve the company’s objectives by reducing the scope of the investigation to limit liability.

*This program is pending approval for SHRM and HRCI credits.
