Compliance reporting has several “moving” performance pieces, some of which may change over the life of the contract.

The #1 Reason Leading To A DOL Audit is an unhappy employee who doesn’t know/understand their wages and benefits calling the DOL complaint hotline. With as little as two days’ notice, a team of DOL investigators can be onsite to review your company records and interview up to 20% of the workforce.
“Bona Fide” Fringe Benefits
Are the current H&W fringe benefit requirements being met? Have replaced benefits been evaluated in current fringe benefit calculations?
Labor Category Mapping
Incorrect job classifications. Are some personnel performing work in more than one labor category?
Proper Wage Determinations
Place of performance changes, appropriate wage determinations incorporated into the contract.
Are SCA-covered independent contractors receiving appropriate wages and fringe benefits?
