Labor & Employment Group counsel Rebecca L. Springer is featured for her comments in a piece about how U.S. federal contractors will face more scrutiny under the Labor Department’s new auditing process and comprehensive reviews. This comes as a result of the Obama Administration increasing the funding for the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.
According to Springer, "The length of audits varies from several months to as long as 10 years. The audit length will probably grow under the Obama push as the office moves toward more onsite visits."
