24.16.7519    WAGE COMPLAINTS AND INVESTIGATIONS

(1) The employee wage complaint is one basis for enforcement of Montana's wage laws. Special forms are provided by the department for the purpose of filing wage complaints.

(2) When the department receives a complaint, it is analyzed to determine its validity and whether the employee is covered by the law. If accepted, the complaint is assigned to a compliance specialist who then contacts the named company or employer to commence the investigation.

(3) Investigations may occur even if no complaint is filed. The department may, on a spot check basis, inspect payroll and personnel records, and conduct interviews to ensure compliance with wage laws.

(4) If a substantial number of computations are needed to determine the amount of wages due, the department may request the employer to make the computations. The employer's computations are subject to department approval.
