In many states, the Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) 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. Like any audit, failing an L&I audit may result in heavy fines and significantly reduce profits. L&I audits may also be performed by your insurance company rather than a state agency.

Labor & Industries auditors will review your payroll, accounting, and schedules for compliance – a daunting task if your employee schedule records are kept in request books, various availability sheets, sticky-notes, scraps of paper, and Excel spreadsheets.
