Company Receives Notice of Audit by Administrative Agency. Should they Retain an Attorney?

It is highly recommended that you retain experienced employment counsel to represent you in connection with any audit.  Misclassification of employees and contractors is significant because if one agency determines that members of your workforce are misclassified, your company has likely violated several other state and federal laws.  The agencies typically report their findings to one another which may result in additional audits/investigations.

Retaining counsel to navigate the process and work cooperatively with these agencies is highly recommended.
