The word audit has unrivaled power to inspire dread. Something about the process of a scrutinizing review of our finances and other dealings causes us to feel nervous. IRS and IDOR are the bureaucratic bodies we most expect to be the initializers of an audit, both for tax reasons. But the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) conducts audits as well.
IDOL seeks to ensure all works in Illinois can work in safe conditions and for fair compensation. Audits from IDOL frequently involve disputes of compensation or overtime and time-and-a-half. IDOL audits ensure employer compliance with a host of Illinois laws, including the 2003 Equal Pay Act, the Health and Safety Act, Minimum Wage Law.
