Protecting Employers in Department of Labor Investigations and Enforcement Actions

Employer Defense Attorneys

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley, LLC, with offices in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, represents employers in investigations, audits and enforcement actions brought against companies by the Department of Labor (DOL).

If your company has received a notice from the Department of Labor, our attorneys are prepared to take the proper actions to defend against the allegations. The DOL commonly received complaints from current or former employees based upon allegations of violations that fall within the purview of investigation by the Department of Labor.

The Department of Labor has a number of agencies that come under its umbrella, including the Office of Safety and Hazards Administration (OSHA) and Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor. Our attorneys have knowledge of the differing administrative law defense requirements and appropriate actions to take to limit liability and litigate cases before the DOL.

Whether you are a contractor that has received notice of a citation from OSHA or a prevailing wage violation, or you are a business owner who has received notice of a claim for unpaid overtime from a former employee, our attorneys have the specific expertise to defend against such allegations. Department of Labor investigators commonly push for a resolution through pressure or threats of further action. Our labor defense litigators are knowledgeable of the federal laws enforced by DOL and know the defenses available to business.

Davis-Bacon Act Defense Law Firm

Department of Labor cases defended by our firm include defense of business in Davis-Bacon claims. The Davis-Bacon Act provides that contractors and employers operating under particular federally funded construction contracts and public works projects must pay prevailing wages to employees. Prevailing labor rates are determined by Department of Labor offices and are exclusively enforced by the Department of Labor.

Wage and Hour Defense

Our nationally recognized wage and hour attorneys defend employers in DOL investigations involving claims of unpaid minimum wage or overtime violations. The firm's wage and hour practice includes extensive knowledge of individual and collective action litigation and defense under the FLSA and cases involving state minimum wage and overtime laws. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in Department of Labor investigations and enforcement cases for employers alleged of violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). We also conduct audits of existing employer policies to ensure that businesses are in compliance with FLSA and state wage and hour laws.

OSHA Defense

Few attorneys have any knowledge or experience in employer defense of OSHA violations. Our attorneys ensure the best outcome for contractors who receive OSHA citations. Appeal of an OSHA citation must be done quickly and timely for an employer to meet the statute of limitations for an appeal, which commonly must be done within days of receipt of the citation.
