Representation on DOL Audit

Warner represented a large West-Michigan utility contractor in a DOL audit that focused on whether the time spent by employees traveling to/from work sites was compensable under the FLSA.  We were successful in convincing the investigator that the FLSA did not apply to the situation since the vehicles the employees drove carried DOT placards and thus the employees fell under the Motor Carrier Exemption to the FLSA’s overtime requirements.
