Every company should perform wage and hour audits periodically; minimally once a year, twice if possible.  It is easier to catch and correct errors yourself than to risk discovery from employees or in the event of a DOL audit, and mistakes do happen.   To remain compliant with wage and hour regulations it helps to have the appropriate checks in place, such as up to date written policies and procedures, periodic training for supervisors and managers, effective complaint mechanisms should be in place and a regular audit process should be established.
