What happens if I get audited?
When an FCE Benefits client is audited by the DOL, the client points them in our direction and the DOL deals directly with FCE on all SCA related matters for which FCE is providing administration. There are certain areas of review, such as overtime obligation and exemption status decisions that are solely within the client’s domain. The primary point of contact is the Account Executive. The Account Executive will take the lead in our organization and gather all the necessary information from our various departments.
