DC is conducting inspections of DC businesses to ensure compliance with the new Wage Theft Preventon Act.  Inspections focus on posters, but may also include a review of payroll records.

It does not appear that the investigators are assessessing penalities, but they are issuing penalty notices and creating follow-up lists.

As a quick reminder, in addition to all federally-required posters, DC employers may be required to post the following (posting requirements may depend on the size and make-up of your staff):

Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act

Child Labor Law

D.C. Equal Employment Opportunity

D.C. Family Medical Leave Act & Parental Leave Act

D.C. Living Wage Act

D.C. Minimum Wage Act

Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (in English and Spanish)

The Right to Breastfeed

Unemployment Compensation

Wage Theft Prevention

Workers’ Compensation
