Labor Compliance Consultants, located at 2981 Mount Hope Road in Mohawk, offers professional consulting and technical compliance assistance to assist employers with achieving compliance with the requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour laws.

Owner Dawn M. Farias was a federal investigator for almost 19 years, she started Labor Compliance Consultants to be able to help employers better comply with the law without high back wages, damages and penalties.

“I started Labor Compliance Consultants in July 2019,” Farias said. “I love what I do. I much prefer meeting employers as a consultant than a federal investigator. The federal rules are complicated. It’s easy to make a very expensive mistake, even when you believe you are doing everything right.”

Farias is a subject matter expert in the Fair Labor Standards Act; Section 14c, which involves sub-minimum wage issues; Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act; the H-2A visa program for temporary foreign seasonal agricultural or service workers; the H-1B visa program for employers seeking to hire nonimmigrant aliens as workers in specialty occupations or as fashion models of distinguished merit and ability: and the Family Medical Leave Act. Her knowledge and experience can eliminate costly liabilities and provide clients peace of mind.

Labor Compliance Consultants offers a wide range of services, including consulting, internal compliance audits, training and representation during a Wage and Hour investigation.

“Don’t wait for Wage and Hour to arrive,” Farias advised. “You will pay for what you don’t know.”

Farias is passionate about helping employers understand Wage and Hour rules and regulations. She is also committed to providing high-quality services to help employers achieve and maintain compliance with the complex, ever changing laws. Labor Compliance Consultants is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more, call 423-343-8877 or Email dawn@laborcomplianceconsultants.com.
