Robin Solomon Quoted on Preparing for a DOL AuditPDF
By Katherine Muniz
Audits are never considered a positive event, but all lawyers agree that as an employer, you should not panic. If you are truly worried, seeking legal defense could help to shorten the length of the investigation.
“If you have a lawyer, contact him or her early in the process, says Attorney Robin Solomon, a partner in Ivins, Phillips & Barker’s Employee Benefits practice. “You can handle an audit without counsel, but our clients generally find that it saves money to have a lawyer on your side. Counsel can shorten the length and scope of an audit and can help your company avoid steep penalties.”
